What Does this mean? Take your best shot..........
I'm thinking this is what it means...
I think if you read George Blaha's blog you would get a feel for what a homer is. PISTONS: Michael Curry weathers a choppy season with calm and class
For example on MC:
I just added that last sentence but you get the drift.
Oh man, Blaha! That really is homerific.
I agree that MC's experimentation endurance was top notch. I also respect that he was willing to restart old experiments after officially ending them, just to get additional confirmation that they were failures. Gotta double check that stuff or you run the risk of winning.
In Blaha's defense, he IS on the Pistons payroll and is basically paid to be a homer (as virtually all local brodcasters are). You kinda expect to hear the company line when you tune in to a local broadcast so it doesn't bother me that much. truth be told, I actually kinda get a kick out of it.
The national guys? -they need to toe the line of objectivity.
Beat writers? (both local and national)? -same deal.
That is exactly what that means Dba. AG hit the nail on the head.
Pistons fans for life are guys (and ladies) like me who moved away from Detroit almost 30 years ago and it still hang out on this forum with you guys everyday supporting this team....someone who has paid for NBA League Pass dating back to 1997 just to watch his hometown Pistons from afar.....
Those of you longtime displaced Michiganders with LP should concur with me on this...
Yes, but as usual Tom Heinsohn is at the head of the class of homerism. This one's always made me laugh.
ESPN.com: Page 2 : Friday surprise! Mailbag time
If you are still following the team then there is a good chance that you probably are a homer.
This should be our mascot...
