Magic Fans Glum: Dwight Departs

Sadness.
That is all.
Just sadness.
Heartbreaking sadness.

Not anger.
Not blame.
Not even relief.
Not now.

Magic fans,
forced to say goodbye
to Dwight Howard,
the greatest player
in the franchise’s history.

Orlando,
the saddest sports city
in America.
The Lakers got Dwight.

It hurts so bad.

This is from Mike Bianchi’s column.  He made my job easy today with his poetic language.
 
Dwight was nicknamed “Superman” and was considered to be the greatest basketball player of all time.  And he played for my hometown team, the Orlando Magic, for ten years.

One more thing.  If you stop going to Magic games, take the money you would have spent on tickets to the game, and spend it downtown.  The downtown businesses need your patronage.
