Memphis Grizzlies Greeted by Confused Cheering Fans in Miami

Poor little Memphis Grizzlies. They're one of only three NBA teams to never win a NBA Championship, Conference Championship or a Division Championship. They've won less than 30% of the games they played in the last two seasons. They gave the first pre-season win to the Heat last night, and to make matters worse they're based in Tennessee. Sigh.

So unsurprisingly it came as a shock to them yesterday when their bus was surrounded with cheering fans on their way to AAA. Ha, they hardly have cheering fans back in Memphis.

"It made us feel important," forward Rudy Gay told the Memphis Commercial Appeal.

Sadly for the Grizzlies, the cheering fans mistook the bus for Senator Obama's. Then Sarah Palin shot at them from a Helicopter. Because she can't pass up the opportunity to kill large, (emotionally) wounded mammals from the sky. Ever. It is a compulsion, and she is working on it.
