You forgot "the neocon agenda".

On a more serious note, although I have been a Laker fan since before they played at the Inglewood Forum, the one death (of public people) that brought me great sadness, was that of Red Auerbach. You loved him or loved to hate him, either way he was loved.

So was getting your a.s.s.e.s kicked in '67, '85 and '88! If it wasn't for Russ, you guys would've been the east coast version of the Clippers.

I bet you we had twice as many playoff games as you guys. All you ever did was win.
