I guess we are just too inexperienced...

or maybe I don't read the papers enough. It just seems to me that, no matter what local team we have in the playoffs (and there haven't been many lately), that the other cities' columnists decide it is time to trash Dallas. I just don't see that happening in our local papers, until it is a response.

Hence, the overwhelmingly stupid overreaction from Dallasites (or, as I suspect, just some idiots claiming to be Dallasites) to a humorous jab from Dave Barry last week, prior to the start if what should soon be the Mavs sweep of the Tepids. C'mon Dallas - I know we are tired of the insults, but let's prove that we can at least take a joke!

It was not, imho, as good as Dave's usual stuff, but hey, he's out of practice! But it was still obviously funny - or intended to be - and did not warrant the classless response that it received. I did like the response from DMN's Steve Blow - and, if you take the time to check, you'll see that the responses back from the Miami crowd were much more reasonable than they got from here.

C'mon Dallas - we have the class of the NBA, lets show some in other ways, huh?
