This is a real conversation I had with my Mom this morning.
C.C.:What are you doing?
Mom: Just working. What about you?
C.C.: Just working.
Mom: Do y'all have a game this evening?
C.C.: Yeah we play the Timberwolves.
Mom: Oh, it's a Thrashers game.
C.C.: No, it's a Hawks game.
Mom: Well where do they play? I've never heard of them.
C.C.: They play in Minnesota.
Mom: They can afford an NBA team?
Mom: Should the Hawks win?
C.C.: They darn well better. They have to play the Spurs, Celtics and Lakers this week. They can't lose this one.
Mom: Yeah they shouldn't lose to a team I've never heard of. Who plays for them?
C.C.: Kevin Garnett used to play for them.
Mom: Oh I know who that is. They must have only mentioned him and never the team he played for. Who else played for them?
C.C.: No one worth mentioning obviously.
Mom: Yeah well I guess the Hawks shouldn't lose to a bunch of nobodies.
C.C. : Let's hope.
