Pile the hate on

My favorite NFL team is the NY Giants.  Its where I was born and raised.  I converted to a Nuggets fan after Michael Jordan retired.  Sorry for liking Jordan and the Bulls but as a 7 year old, Michael Jordan was mesmerizing.  I was a fickle kid from New Jersey.  I now claim to be a die hard Nuggets fan.  And I am, just like I bleed blue for my NY Giants.  I see a common theme between my two favorite teams.  I religiously follow both teams, perhaps the Giants more because football flows in my blood, but I love my Nuggets like I love myself...

The common denominator I see between these two team is the compassion to fight when the odds are stacked against us.  The Giants seem to play better when nobody thinks they have a chance.  They are at there best when their backs are against the wall, fighting for their lives.  Now the past few season my Giants have seen several injuries which derailed their chances, and although every team sees injuries, the WR corps being decimated severely hurts your chances against top competition like Philadelphia and Green Bay.  This is very comparable to losing Kmart and the Coach this previous season (2010).  There is absolutely no way the Giants blow that 21 point lead against Philly with Steve Smith in the offense.  Besides Wes Welker he is best slot receiver in the league.  One first down wins the game.  I guarentee he gets that if hes in the game... The Nuggets are starting to see injuries pile up throughtout the lineup.  Triple A is banged up, Ray Felton is hurting, so is Ill Will and Danilo.  This team is strong, but how strong?  OKC will present a very difficult matchup in the first round and we are most surely going to meet them.  The Nuggets are not favored to win this series just like my Giants were not favored in 2007 when they shocked the world and the undefeated Patriots.  But just like my NY Giants the Denver Nuggets seem to thrive on adversity.  I am psyched for these playoffs just as when I was when we made the WCF and lost to LA..  This team is incredibly deep and its the only thing keeps my mind off this goddamn lockout.  I tend to be pissed at the NBA due to David Stern, but Damnit doesnt some team need to throw a wrench into his Lakers vs Lakers final!!!

 

By the way not many analysts are giving our Nugs a chance against the superstars they have in OKC...
