Blogging from across the Atlantic turned out to be more difficult than I foresaw. Not to confirm a stereotype, but having an unusually good and busy stretch of life is not conducive to good blogging. Barring unforeseen delay(s) Hoopinion will return to a normal schedule Wednesday night with a liveblog of Game 2 and the usual post-game content on Thursday.
Thanks to all who have read regularly this year for their patience with my ill-timed absence this past week. Special thanks to Ron and Bronn for carrying on and posting their Game 1 reactions in the comments of the previous post.
