Wednesday night's Spurs game against the Denver Nuggets was BIG!
The Nuggets came in with the best record in the Western Conference. With a brutal weekend road swing coming up, this was a game the Spurs had to win.
So far this season, I had not used my trusty Spurs Hard Hat as a good luck piece of head gear. I broke it out last season during critical, hard games and it tended to have a good record.
Knowing that this was a pivotal game in the season, I not only wore the Spurs Hard Hat in-studio for my show and the Spurs broadcast on 1200 WOAI, but I chose to employ another powerful weapon: The Saint Gregory of Popovich Holy Prayer Candle.
Big games call for big leaps of faith.
And my faith was rewarded.
The Spurs beat the Nuggets, 111-103.
It could be argued that this was the biggest Spurs win of the season so far.
Go Spurs Go.
In Pop We Trust.
