Basketball fans watched The Los Angeles Clippers choke in the worst way possible by losing three games in-a-row to The Houston Rockets and ending their playoff hopes. It being The Clippers, it wasn’t unexpected – as losing is pretty much the norm for the team.
Seeing as how the franchise always finds a way to lose (even up by 19 points in the 3rd quarter of game 6), a Los Angeles Craigslist poster decided to have a little fun with the the team’s loss by posting a Craigslist ad entitled “Saw You from the Court” in the Missed Connections section of Craigslist: Los Angeles:
Me: The Los Angeles Clippers, a 40 something-year old pro-basketball team.
You: The Conference Finals.
Where: Staples Center, downtown LA.
I saw you there, briefly, from where I was on the court. Golden and wonderful, you smelled like victory and confetti. I was intoxicated with the thought of reaching you. You smiled — I thought at me — and it was a smile that went right through my being, that made everything seem perfect, whole and worthwhile. Then, with, like, six minutes left to go in the game, I looked up and you were gone.
And now, worst of all, we all have to suffer through a boring Houston vs. Golden State series.
