The Memphis Clippers

Head on over here first.

We are in danger of having the Griz turn into the Clip. Davis wants to raise the average ticket price 10 bucks and slash payroll. While I agree that cutting payroll (bye, Eddie Jones, Jake Suckilidas, and Chucky Atkins) is a good decision, they are going about it the wrong way. They believe that they can win with a payroll under the cap with young, cheap players while raising ticket prices.

I agree that they might have more knowledge about basketball then me, but I also know that the only way to contend is to spend money to a degree, that's why the NBA has cap exceptions and cap minimums. We are in danger of having the old Clippers here. A team of good young players that we trade or let go in free agency. There will be little to no loyalty by the players and even less reason for them to want to come here if the owners won't spend money because it doesn't fit their plan for the team.

I am worried that the prospective majority owner is selling ownership shares in order
to raise the money to by Heisley's over priced shares. Attendance is down and will remain that way until next year when the Griz will be reloaded with Pau back and a likely high draft pick that we could turn into Noah, McRoberts, or possibley Oden. It's kind of funny that at the start of the season ESPN and SI said that we would be players in the hunt for Rashard Lewis when he is a free agent this summer.

Enjoy these last three years of Grizzlies. If Brian Davis and company buy the team, this town is doomed to be the new Clippers, Warriors, Wizards, or Hawks. As a Duke apologist on a level just below Dick Vitale, this is going to be painful to watch.

Good article. I don't know what properties in Memphis L&D intend to develop. Around the pyramid? Will they be constructing a built-in, easy-access clientele? Another $10 by upperly mobile urbans that can get to the game from near-downtown is not the same as +$10 for suburbanites.

Innyhoo, good luck with them!

Hello. Prompt how to get acquainted with the girl it to me to like. But does not know about it
I have read through one history
Each of you has your personal story; it is your history. Keeping a diary or writing your feelings in a special notebook is a wonderful way to learn how to think and write about who you are -- to develop your own identity and voice.

People of all ages are able to do this. Your own history is special because of your circumstances: your cultural, racial, religious or ethnic background. Your story is also part of human history, a part of the story of the dignity and worth of all human beings. By putting opinions and thoughts into words, you, too, can give voice to your inner self and strivings.

A long entry by Anne Frank on April 5, 1944, written after more than a year and a half of hiding from the Nazis, describes the range of emotions 14-year-old Anne is experiencing:

". . . but the moment I was alone I knew I was going to cry my eyes out. I slid to the floor in my nightgown and began by saying my prayers, very fervently. Then I drew my knees to my chest, lay my head on my arms and cried, all huddled up on the bare floor. A loud sob brought me back down to earth, and I choked back my tears, since I didn't want anyone next door to hear me . . .

"And now it's really over. I finally realized that I must do my school work to keep from being ignorant, to get on in life, to become a journalist, because that's what I want! I know I can write. A few of my stories are good, my descriptions of the Secret Annex are humorous, much of my diary is vivid and alive, but . . . it remains to be seen whether I really have talent . . .

"When I write I can shake off all my cares. My sorrow disappears, my spirits are revived! But, and that's a big question, will I ever be able to write something great, will I ever become a journalist or a writer? I hope so, oh, I hope so very much, because writing allows me to record everything, all my thoughts, ideals and fantasies.

"I haven't worked on Cady's Life for ages. In my mind I've worked out exactly what happens next, but the story doesn't seem to be coming along very well. I might never finish it, and it'll wind up in the wastepaper basket or the stove. That's a horrible thought, but then I say to myself, "At the age of 14 and with so little experience, you can't write about philosophy.' So onward and upward, with renewed spirits. It'll all work out, because I'm determined to write! Yours, Anne M. Frank

For those of you interested in reading some of Anne Frank's first stories and essays, including a version of Cady's Life, see Tales From the Secret Annex (Doubleday, 1996). Next: Reviewing and revising your writing

I considered myself as the professional in this theme, and did not think that I can find in the Internet something new. But having come on your site, I have understood, that I know nothing and it is necessary for me to study and study as much as possible.
