Finally, opening day! Not for the Rockets, but the season has begun - at least for six teams. The Rockets open tomorrow night at home against the Memphis Grizzlies. With Shane Battier and Aaron Brooks both out with bad wheels, let's hope the Rockets have enough in the tank to pull out their first victory of the season. I'm betting they do.
A friend once compared the preseason to going to school. I think it's more like Christmas Eve. Any father who loves his kid enjoys putting the bike together the night before almost as much as seeing the child's eyes when they first behold the finished product. The regular season is Christmas morning. Well, Merry Christmas everyone! I'm looking forward to unwrapping the first win of the season tomorrow night!
