Keep up the heat, friends. Tuesday's game in Philly is lights-out as well - for now.
On a far deeper note, our thoughts invariably end up with the shooting victims and their families in Binghamton, New York. A moment of silence for all. A tough day.
Will the Cats look down at Atlanta? Does Andy have another shiner up his sleeve? Am I going to enjoy searching the web high and low for this thing tonight?
$20 I spent on GameCenter last week. Tonight had beeter be the Big Payoff.
