    I think Flip has to because his job depends on it.

    You mean the Darko Ages?

    No lie, I was writing an email thursday and I used the word dark in it 3 times. When I proofread before sending, I had typed darko all three times.

    Muscle memory is crazy stuff.

    Darn you Roscoe! You stole my thunder.


    I was about to write that (Darko Ages) but had to look up the correct spelling of "renaissance" to go with what I was saying. JUST FORGET IT NOW!!

    Dark 3 times in an email? Did it go something like this?

    "It was a darko and stormy night...darko shadows were cast about the palace by the gas lamps...and then I remembered that it is always darkoest before the dawn..." :D

    Knowing Roscoe it was more along the lines of:

    Dear Mommy,

    I am still scared of the Darko. I have bad dreams when it's Darko outside. Can I come upstairs from my basement bedroom and cuddle with you next time it's darko and stormy outside??

    Not trying to darkoen your parade, but I think I'll wait until these guys actually play in a game before I ring in a new era....

    Technically, the title of this thread does say today. Today is not over, so anything that happens today, like starting at 6pm, webcast, the first summer league game for the Pistons, still counts yet. The title does not say the era has already started. It says it will start today. This implied statement could be right or wrong. We will begin to see the answer quite shortly. By the way, has anyone posted just how we "tune in" and how good the picture will be? Well, I am off to see "Evan Almighty".

    I think Lee hit the nail on the head. It starts today. It's like planting some green beans and waiting to see how they will grow.

    I wouldn't limit the discussion to just the lighter-colored veggies like green beans. Some of the darkoer produce such as radishes and turnips have a chance, too, provided you use darko, rich soil. As long as the sun comes up and you don't get too many darko days, everything should grow fine if you remember to water regularly.

    Perhaps these new guys will show the same potential as young Will Blalock. Remember that three-pointer he drained in January? Nothin' but net. Let the new era begin!

    Good point about Blalock, Bill. We need to find a way to replace those three points that Will gave us last year.

    This "new era" Pistons team has one guy whose talent at three pointers remains untapped. Antonio McDyess has hit 7 three pointers during his career and none during his time in a Pistons uniform.

    I think Dyess is the man to hit that three this year.

    You guys think small.

    I'm thinking something really BIG!!

    I think we get the sweet three from Acker. But it's going to be an all net three with a foul too.

    It will be so huge they will call him "Ack and the Beanstalk" after that. He'll make us forget all about Will Blalock and Rodney White too.:MusicBigGrin:

    If Acker did make the Piston squad we would have another Compton CA guy. That would give us 3 guys from Compton CA. (Acker, Afflalo, and Prince) and one other from Los Angeles proper; i.e., Amir.

    3 guys from Compton CA. Are we kidding or what? The total population of Compton in 2000 was under 95,000.

    Compton, California - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    At that point we should change our name from Detroit Pistons to So.CA Pistons. LOL

    I have a feeling this is going to be one of those threads....and those of us with Darko skin would appreciate a break.

    You guys laugh now, but when you are typing darko instead of dark, you will have no one to blame but yourselves! :)

    Did you have to proofread that post to make sure you spelled dark correctly? :MusicBigGrin:
