Hey, Mom! Talking to My Mother #612 - Pistons game with Dad: Pistons Beat Cavs 106-101 1703.09
Dad and I went to see the Pistons play the Cavaliers last night, and the Pistons won!! This is a good thing as we saw them lose when we went last year to the Martin Luther King day game on 1601.18.
This is a cheat here as I am including the picture from last year. We didn't take pictures this year of us together, which is an oversight I should never allow.
It was a great outing, though. I scheduled it for when Liesel was in England, so I would not disturb her my coming home late.
Dad and I stopped in East Lansing and had a nice dinner at Beggar's Banquet, a classic spot that's been there forever. We shared whitefish pate. Dad had whitefish as well and I had a red curry mussels dinner over rice noodles.
We stopped twice on the way to buy coffee and were foiled each time at not being able to find the Starbucks, which were not really near the exits. So I had a Coke at the game.
It was a great game. The Pistons were down by ten in the first half, but they came back to take the lead at half with a buzzer beater closing shot. They lost the lead again in the third but outscored the Cavaliers at one point 22-5 to regain the lead and hold it.
We made good time home, but the dogs were a bit distressed at me being gone, especially Satchel who cried pitifully for a long time when I got home.
Here's pictures, the box score, and the AP report by Noah Trister (credit given for my re-post). Pictures (except mine) by Getty Images.

NOTE on time: When I post late, I had been posting at 7:10 a.m. because Google is on Pacific Time, and so this is really 10:10 EDT. However, it still shows up on the blog in Pacific time. So, I am going to start posting at 10:10 a.m. Pacific time, intending this to be 10:10 Eastern time. I know this only matters to me, and to you, Mom. But I am not going back and changing all the 7:10 a.m. times. But I will run this note for a while. Mom, you know that I am posting at 10:10 a.m. often because this is the time of your death.
THESE are my pictures
Not as good as the pro photos, but they are the pictures I took.
