In a sold out game the Memphis Grizzlies took down the mighty L.A. Lakers in one of the best games I've seen this year. As I entered the stadium I was surrounded by Laker fans. A couple of people even made fun of my Grizzlies' cap. One person said, "You here to see them get beat by 30 points?" Of course the sad thing is that I wasn't at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, but right here at the FedEx Forum and those weren't people from L.A. but from Memphis.
Now of course people have the right to support whatever team they choose, but it breaks my heart to see Memphians down their own team. Do they not realize that this is one of the only professional teams we have in this city? I realize that other cities do the same thing but we can't afford that luxury.
Come on Memphis show some hometown pride!
