This is a transcript of my thoughts last night during the second half of the Cavaliers double-overtime loss to the Philadelphia 76ers, started by a text message from friend Joe Chamberlain...

8:30: Austin Carr-ism No. 32...repeats same thought in six different ways, emphases on wrong parts of sentence...

8:36: Text to Joe, "why do i watch. carr makes me put gun in mouth." Missing Michael Reghi very much...

8:39: Text from Joe, "He's a moron. I hate Wayne Embry." I don't hate the Cavs team president and COO, but I do find myself hating sideline interviews by Jeff Phelps, who interrupts the game with softball questions to nearby stars like Embry...

8:40: Text to Joe, "I hate everyone who has appeared on my tv since 7 p.m." That includes most players and fans in a new section being called "Loudville."

8:40: Text from Joe, "Larry hughes sucks. He shoots on the wy down." I soon notice that the Cavalier Girls are wearing Hughes' number, 32. Now wondering what they will sport when Hughes gets hurt and misses the next 42 games.

8:42: Text to Joe, "Wow...[Anderson Verajao took] a charge...let's all wear afro wigs to the game." Hating "Wild Thing," who tonight is just wild, not productive.

8:46: Text from Joe, "Donyell [Marshall] is my least favorite cavalier of all time."

8:47: Reply, "What about Pollard, Diop, Newble, Scott Williams..."

8:49: Text from Joe, "Hate em all, but Donyell most." The ensuing phone conversation discusses Donyell's sagging physique and a host of other defensive problems.

8:56: Austin Carr-ism No. 49...describing solid LeBron James play as "L-Train on its way to Euclid." Friend Jessica, at Joe's house, unable to understand this reference...

9:00: Fans in "Loudville" apparently at PTA meeting.

9:15: Realize that, were I to go blind, the most dreaded words I could hear are "...and now Eric Snow from 10 feet..."

9:23: Phone discussion with Joe about peculiarties of Moondog. Questioning why we can't have a swashbucking Cavalier instead of a crazy dog of indeterminate breed. Would like to have pirate ship like Tampa Bay.

9:25: Austin Carr-ism No. 85...an endless series of dependent clauses, no end of coherent thought in sight...

9:26: Kyle Korver makes two free throws. Remembering when I had floor seats for a 76ers game last season...man in club section kept calling him "70's Show." Many laughed, including me and my dad. Korver obviously irked.

9:30: Wish I could revoke Austin Carr's "sellin' Miller High Life privileges..."

10:04: "Rock and Roll (Part Two)" comes on to pump up crowd. Wondering what part one sounds like. Also, who gets the song royalties if he is in jail? Does he have like a direct deposit or something. Must do further research...

10:05: Wishing that a drunk Bob Uecker from Major League was announcing game...
