Mavericks = Champions!

Guys, I'm so excited. I just got through watching the game; Dallas Mavericks v. Miami Heat. I'm a die-hard Mavs fan, and I was so hopeful that we'd wrap up the series before Game 7 and stick it to Miami on their own turf. And WE DID IT. And yes, it deserves an entire blog post. A short one, but still.

This is the first championship for the Mavericks in 31 years—the first championship in the franchise's history. It's a pretty big freakin' deal, that's what!

I watched the game at home with my family, and we were all cheering our boys on. Tucker got overwhelmed by all of the shouting, clapping, et cetera, and retired to my room for a large chunk of game time. I can't stop smiling. We played a great game tonight, and I've never been more proud to be a Mavs fan.

Congratulations, boys. You deserve it!

Do you get bummed that all the talk is about LeBron James choking and not about the Mavs' success? I personally am glad all those vets got the chance to get a championship. Nice post.

@Becky—Thanks! The photo came from AOL's sports page. I hope I'm not slighting them by using it. I've tried to give credit where credit is due! :)

I am SO proud of our boys! They deserve this more than anyone.

@Kaori—Thank you! It may be a few days later, but I'm still just as excited! :)

@MR—Yes, I do. They should be talking about how the Mavs played a great game and deserved to win! They earned that trophy. :)
