I suppose a little optimism is a good thing. Of course delusions and optimisim are two completely different things.
Today, in a show of deluded optimism, the Phoenix Suns announced their preseason schedule, set to begin October 11 against the L.A. Sterlings at U.S. Airways Arena. The schedule features two games a piece against the Denver Nuggets and Portland Trailblazers, one in Vancouver, Canada, where Steve Nash would in theory attract a large, raucous crowd.
Of course, none of this will happen now will it? Have a look or a chuckle, or, if you are at work, try not to chuck your coffee mug at the monitor while calling David Stern lil' Darth Vader.
Tues., Oct. 11 L.A. Clippers US Airways Center, Phoenix 7 p.m.
Sat., Oct. 15 Portland Trail Blazers Rose Garden, Portland 7 p.m.
Mon., Oct. 17 Portland Trail Blazers Rogers Arena, Vancouver, Canada 7 p.m.

Tues., Oct. 25 Okla. City Thunder US Airways Center, Phoenix 7 p.m.
All times Phoenix time
Oh and hey-you people who can, like, you know, alter computer images and stuff...I'll give one of you a free 16 ounce Dr. Pepper for the best image of Stern as Darth Vader!
