Just Heather
Best Dressed

It seems a recent fan poll selected the Indiana Pacers as the best dressed in the NBA. A few years ago, I would have had to vehemently disagree. Those yellow uniforms—which occasionally still get pulled out on what can only be laundry night—were tacky as can be. The blue pinstriped jerseys rock, but it could be I’m partial. That’s the Miller jersey I have.

I need to get a new one before they retire his jersey. The one I have was my first ever—and, quite possibly, my most recent—Mother’s Day present 7 years ago. I’ve worn it to every game I’ve ever been to, and most of the ones I’ve watched from home. It’s starting to look a bit sad.

On another sad note, I’ve been trying to write a Reggie Miller retirement post for weeks, but I just can’t seem to get it right. It’s not that I don’t want him to go. I think he’s making the best decision for himself and the team. It’s just that Reggie created this team. Reggie invented the Pacer fan. Reggie made me an all out sports fan. I don’t know how to say goodbye. Not goodbye. See you soon. I have high hopes he’ll remain a part of the franchise in some way. He’s a Pacer through and through.
