The Battle of the Fans
A week ago while many were sweating out the Pistons/Cavs series and wondering if the reigning Eastern Conference Champs could even make it back to defend their title, I was calmly awaiting the Miami series. Even though analysts/critics/fans were crying bloody murder and lamenting on how the Pistons weren't the same, I knew they would be back.
Easy to say now, Ms. Campbell, after they're back and tied 1-1 with the Miami Heat. Oh ye of little faith...you doubt my firm, uncontested reasoning....and so I bring you the Battle of the Fans.
I'm sure you've all played the Battle of the Mascots (what team will win based on a fictional face-off of each team's mascots), but the Battle of the Fans (what team will win based on a fictional face-off of each team's celebrity fans) is much more entertaining.
The thought occurred to me in game 4, as TNT shamelessly plugged Usher RaymondUsher) on the sidelines dancing like an idiot as LeBron lead the Cavs to another victory. With the series tied up at 2-2, my Pistons playing bad defense and even worse offense you would expect me to be worried. But after I saw the display by Usher I was more resolute in my belief the Pistons would win. Why? Our fan, Kid Rock, could most definitely beat up Usher.
Let's face it, Usher is an R&B artist who are known for the toughness, but underneath it all he's a pretty boy. He's more worried about keeping his 24 pack abs intact than anything else. Kid Rock could care less about that stuff I mean, just LOOK at him. Plus he's scrapier, and need I mention trashier? He could take out Usher single handedly.
So now that we've downed Usher, who's up next? Ah yes, the Miami Heat....and (since the first battle was music stars, we'll keep it that way) the Latin lover Enrique Iglesias. No contest. All Eminem or Kid Rock has to do is look at pansy mole man and he'd run the other way, or hide behind girlfriend Anna.
No need to worry Pistons fans, we're going back to the Finals!!
