    So should Mason dress as an undertaker or curator?

    Here is one bleak ray of hope. I remember facing the Cavs (I forgot what year) but in Game 2 they came back in the 4th quarter to shorten up the blowout. We ended up winning the game but they cut the lead down a lot. When we went back to Cleveland they ended up winning both Games 3 and 4 despite the Pistons dominance in the first game and 3/4 quarters in Game 2.

    Not the last couple years when corporate take-over has killed the atmosphere IMO.

    But that joint was rockin' just a few years ago as loud as any building.

    i'll be at the Palace and personally attempting to make it a good crowd. i've been to nearly every home playoff game the last 4 years and the crowds DO show up for playoffs...especially with all the $12 tickets they were selling, i'm hoping it is sold out and raucous.

    obviously i'll give you guys a hogcap after the game.

    That was 2006, when the roles were reversed and we were the dominant powerhouse team.

    Good for you Hog. Let's hope the Pistons show up even half as motivated as you are.

    If Tom Wilson gives you a peptalk, take advantage of the situation, record it with your phone, and ask him flat out

    WILL YOU FIRE CURRY?

    Yeah thats what I am saying. Now the Cavs are the powerhouse. If we take the momentum of the 4th quarter and somehow use it to win Games 3 and 4 things could get interesting.

    In that series the Cavs lost in Game 7 I think. If we got in that situation the one advantage we would have is experience.

    But I think our pride is wounded and no miracle comeback will occur. We'll see on Friday.

    Switch over to watch Denver Nuggets. They're having a very good run right now.

    Maybe this is why the starters are quitting early.

    "I learned a lot in Detroit and I hope that the players learned something from me in my time there," Saunders said. "There was always one message from Joe and that message was that if you didn't win a championship, we always considered that as a failure. I'm disappointed that we didn't win a championship ... but I don't consider getting to the conference finals three years in a row as being a negative. If it was easy, a lot of people would do it.

    You never apprecaite something until it's gone. But, in the long run, this is what both parties needed.

    We kicked butt in round 1 with Chauncey too. If they crap out in game 6 of the WCF against the Lakers, we can all feel at ease again.

    They should hang Saunders' name from the rafters.
