Inside the Mind of a Cavs Fan: Sixers at Cavaliers

April 17, 2012; Detroit, MI, USA; Let us never speak of what transpired on this evening ever again. Mandatory Credit: Andrew Weber-US PRESSWIRE

Deep breath.

Last night is over. History. It happened, it can never be undone, but it's over. Today is a new day, tonight is a new game, in a different city, against a different team. Is it a better team than last night? Yes. While the Sixers have been playing like hot garbage of late, they're still a dangerous team that has had the Cavaliers number all season. That said, Kyrie Irving is back, so he should at least keep it close.

Regardless, I'm still a bit exhausted from last night's game. I've taken some precautions to avoid a repeat of the emotional breakdown that occurred 24 short hours ago. I've taken a nice, long, leisurely walk around the block, enjoying the fresh air and sunshine. I'm nursing a cup of peppermint tea to soothe my torn-up throat. There's a hot, fresh Hawaiian pizza with jalapeños (TREAT YO SELF) on it's way to my apartment as I type. Regardless of how bad tonight's game is, my apartment is a happy place.

The theme of tonight is Zen. Calm. I'm like a stone, nothing can break me. Not veteran leadership, not Omri Casspi going 0-10, nothing. I will remain calm. As such, to aid in that goal, I will reflect all my thoughts on this game in haiku form.

Never read an angry haiku, right?

First Quarter

Decent basketball?

Kyrie Irving has returned,

Bench still terrible.


Philly is hurting.

Tumbling down the East standings.

Time to fear the deer?

Second Quarter

My pizza arrives.

Walk away for just a bit.

Only down by five.


Philly looks real bad.

Barely beating the Cavs.

Time to blow it up?

Third Quarter

Philly pulls away.

Cavs bench really cannot score.

Zen, Angelo. Calm.


Things are looking grim.

Who can save the day for us?

Unleash the Gody!

Fourth Quarter

Welp, that didn't work.

Gody was not the answer.

The streak continues.


Five games left this year.

Will our heroes win again?

Bring on Carmelo.
