Sunrise Sunset

Have you ever had the feeling the world is a tuxedo and you are a sad pair of brown shoes? Phoenix Suns fans have. They sit patiently, for the most part, in the closet waiting for the perfect ensemble to come together and make them shine. Sometimes that door opens to shed a beam of hope, but usually they're passed over for a more elegant pair.

The door did open when the team signed Goran Dragic, who has played some of his best games lately. Even with the speculation that first stringers are being held back from playing to obtain a better pick next year, Dragic and others continue fighting for their fans, future, and pride. No matter what decisions are made outside their scope, they’ll still be on the court sweating it out to keep the fans’ hope for brighter days alive. After all, a tuxedo is nice on special occasions -- but nothing beats your favorite pair of loafers, wear, tear, and all.
