On some level, I can see why some people might think that I should apologize to Bill Simmons, because he ostensibly did not jinx the Warriors out of the playoffs. But really, he (and you too), should be praising me, because by unabashedly sending him that e-mail, and posting it in a public forum, I was performing an elaborate anti-jinx, whereby ensuring that the Warriors be victorious. So no, I won't apologize. And yes, you can thank me later.
And yes, I am soooooo pumped that the Warriors are in the second round.
