It Ended Tonight

Red Robin, San Mateo
It was a scene replicated in bars and restaurants around the Bay Area. As the seconds ticked down in the 4th quarter of Game 5, the Golden State Warriors rebuffed attempts by the Cleveland Cavaliers to close the ten-point gap.

The crowd grew noisier. Patrons couldn't stay in their seats. The waitstaff began hollering. The final score: Golden State 129, Cleveland 120. The Warriors were again NBA Champs.

Most basketball fans around the country (as well as commercial interests) rooted for the NBA Finals to continue, but the Bay Area marches to its own beat and wanted it ended tonight. Time to get on with our lives.
