Great Night's Sleep

"And the light falls across her face
I cannot seem to lie
So I say don't look back, don't worry now
Let me drive tonight..."
-Alex Hardcastle "Drive"
As I type this, ABC is doing pre-game for Game 3 of the Spurs/Pistons NBA Finals matchup. I expect Detroit to be very tough at home, much as they were in the regular season. Remember, this is the same Detroit team that faced elimination in consecutive games against Miami in the Eastern Conference Finals and managed to come back to win. They nearly came back from way down on Tuesday night. There are no easy ones against the defending champs.
Additionally, as a Spurs fan it's exciting because I know that the Spurs will need someone to play above their normal level to compliment Duncan. In Game 1 it was Manu Ginobli; in Game 2, Bruce Bowen stepped it up. It's someone else's turn tonight, at least if the Spurs want to win.
I can't say enough good things about the new sheets I bought. Go with a 300 thread count if you can. The past two nights of sleep have been *so* relaxing. Plus this new pillow I bought is wonderful. I feel silly writing all of this about sheets and a pillow, but it really has made a nice difference in my sleep the past two nights.
One last thing: I forgot to mention that Xavier McDaniel's cameo in Singles was one of the funniest random moments in a movie I've ever seen. To explain it would ruin it for you, but if you ever see the movie, you'll know what I'm talking about when you see it...
