Still spending Opening Night with my blog brothers – even with no game

Spurs Nation’s attention should have been directed to the ATT Center last night for the Spurs’ season-opening game against Milwaukee last night.

The lockout took care of that, leaving a bunch of us angry and hungry for any kind of contact with the NBA.

My blog brothers over at 48 Minutes of made sure that a few us still got together for a few minutes last night. I was honored to participate in a live video chat with Graydon Gordian, Andrew McNeill and Jesse Blanchard for a few minutes on their TV show.

We weren’t treated to Gregg Popovich’s season-opening soliloquoy, or the newest way that chicken was cooked in the Spurs’ media dining hall. But it was good to spend a few minutes with them and talk about lockout-related issues.

Here’s ato their debut. I’m sure the quality of their guests will only improve in the future.
