'Twas the night before the season, when all through LB
Not a creature was stirring, not even Mike B;
The predictions were made by the readers right here,
In hopes that the secret prize would soon be theirs;
The Sixers were cuddling all snug as a team,
While visions of Eddie Jordan still haunted their dreams;
And Tanner in his undies, and I in my cap,
Had just settled in to write a long recap,
When out on the lawn there arose such a cheer,
I sprang from the basement to see Derek carrying the beer.
Back to the computer where I posted a tweet,
About how the Sixers just beat the last-place Heat.
Thrilled readers rec'd comments, turning everything green
Because Iguodala just banged home a game-winner like an excited Mike Breen.
"Happy Basketball to all, and to all a good-night."
