This is for all the marbles - It all ends tonight – late tonight. Go Heat!

This is it. No do overs, no two out of three (actually, it was always best of seven). Fans - Let’s root for the home team. And Heat – Please don’t squander a great game 6 comeback. Refs - If the foot is on the line when shooting, its not a three.

And whatever, don’t call me early tomorrow morning! It should be a late night. Hopefully everyone stays for a celebratory end of a series and championship season.

Go Heat!

We could see the effects of starting games so late for game 6, especially for those with children in attendance. National media has been mocking Miamians for what we have often referred to as “the Miami Standing ovation” – getting up and trying to beat the traffic rather than properly staying for the end of a game or performance, including departure rather than staying to applaud the efforts of the players or performers at cultural events.

    Any celebrations must be done quietly in the village of retirees, formerly known as the village of parks.
