Cleveland Cavaliers vs Indiana Pacers: The Twitter Experience

New, comments

In a game that I'm quite certain took 4 weeks instead of 4 quarters, the Cavaliers lost to the Pacers. A glutton for punishment, I took to twitter to see what the vibe was.

This seemed pretty fitting. We're gonna hover around .500 for a while. I mean..... most of us picked the team to be within 4-6 wins of .500 and that's how they're playing so I'm chillin.

As you can see, I expected a 16 point loss. We lost by 15. In the utopia of Akron, we call that progress.

This was awesome. This was easily the best part of the game.

This might be fair, I dunno. As you can imagine doing a twitter search for "Dion Waiters" sent me into a complete rage, and since I'm already sporting a nice fever, I will refrain from going further.

Naturally that is where we end this thing. I'm working on a youtube slideshow that just pulls up Zavac tweets and plays "Ironic" in the backround because when David is interrupting my homer with all this reality its like RAAAAIIINNNNNNN ON YOUR WEDDINGGGGGGG DAY.

We play the Timberwolves tomorrow. It would be REALLY COOL, if Kyrie scored a bunch of points and we won that would be cool too.
