I used to see Alan a lot at the gym, and here's a prototypical example of a conversation we would have quite frequently:
SFL: Hi Alan.AKF: The Fins will be SLAMMING this year!!SFL: Aah, yep, I sure hope so.AKF: How 'bout the moves [insert player here] made on [insert another player here]??SFL: Pretty impressive.AKF: Was that AMAZING, or what???SFL: Sure was.AKF: Just F*&KING AWESOME!![pause]AKF: Want to play hoops?
Anyways, I'm reminded of this by Alan's exuberant column today extolling the Troika that Saved Miami.
Let's hope Alan's even partially right.
