Detroit fans are reeling

As someone whose spent four years watching trashy guys with gelled hair and big silver chains walk around Southeast Michigan with Wallace jerseys on (no large Gordon at UConn t-shirt underneath of course), nothing is sweeter than listening to Piston fans rationalizing the loss of their idol and the face of their franchise. While the contract is monstrous, the interior defense was shockingly good last night, which is what you pay for with Big Ben. It'll be interesting to see how they deal with Howard tonight. I saw him play in person at the tailend of his rookie year, and his athleticism can make Tyrus look like Bagaric.

The depth also stood out. When Ben goes 1-9 and you throw up 108, you know you got some players sitting next to Pete Meyers.

A good quote by Skiles to leave you with. "It's one game, we're 1-0, yippee," coach Scott Skiles said. "This is an unrelenting league. We move on." What an ass.

1-0

I like that about Skiles, though. Plus, he's right. Blowing out Miami doesn't really mean jack if they don't turn around and beat Orlando tonight.
