If you are like most fans....you will turn off a game if it's a blowout. Most people don't want to watch their team get slaughtered and will find something else to do. And most times you really won't miss anything. It's tough to come back from big deficits in pro sports. it doesnt happen often...but when it does oh is it pretty to watch. Last night the Milwaukee Bucks went down 27 points to the Chicago Bulls in Chicago. This was coming off three losses in a row including to the Bulls just this past Saturday in Milwaukee. They ahdnt beaten the Bulls since April of 2010. This streak promised to erase much of the good feeling that the Bucks have built up by their good start to the season. But the second unit wasnt going to stand for it. Scott Skiles emptied his bench and saw his reserves go on a 31-4 run to win the game 93-92. Ersan Ilyasova, who has struggled mightily since signing his big contract extension led the comeback with 18 points...12 in the 4th quarter. Milwaukee played the fourth quarter with the same five players...Ilyasova, Epke Udoh , Beno Udrih, Mike Dunleavy and Doron Lamb. It's one of the great moments of watching sports...when you see a game that looks gone suddenly be brought back into the win column...and you stayed with it and were able to witness something that doesnt happen very often.
The Bucks are back in action Wednesday night hosting the New York Knicks.

Leningrad-Billy Joel (1989) a very interesting tune written after Joel's concert tour of Russia. A circus clown went to all six concerts and Joel wrote about the differences and similarities in their upbringing and how they came to be where they met. Some of the music in the tune came from Russian composer Peter Tchaikovsky's violin concerto. From the album Storm Front.
