Clippers Win! Clippers Win!
Is the apocalypse upon us? Are my eyes deceiving me? Did the Clippers really win a playoff round last night?
I can't think of a team in professional sports that better symbolizes mediocrity to me. The Clippers have been pretty damn awful throughout most of my life. They hadn't won a playoff series since 1976, when the team was playing in Buffalo as the Braves and beat the Philadelphia 76ers in the opening round before losing to the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference semifinals. We complain about 39 years without a championship while these guys went 30 years without advancing into the second round of the playoffs a single time. Ouch.
Of course, it's probable the Clippers will win it all before we get another sip from that awesome mug.
