Greetings from the Alamo City

Greetings from AT&T Center in San Antonio, where the Southwest Division-leading (that's right, Southwest Division-leading) New Orleans Hornets take on the defending NBA champion San Antonio Spurs.

Before I get to the importance of tonight's game, let me tell you that no trip to San Antonio is complete until I visit to mi tierra.


If you like Mexican food, you'll LOVE mi tierra!!

Back to the game.

New Orleans has soared to the top of the division, leading San Antonio by 1 1/2 games. But the Hornets, one of the NBA's top road teams, have lost six straight games in San Antonio dating back to 2004.

A road win over the defending champs would give the Hornets, who're riding a seven-game winning streak, a tremendous boost.


Hornets forward Melvin Ely, who played with the Spurs last season, was awarded his championship ring before the game.

Mi Tierra, Larry? Are you nuts? Unless it has improved in recent years, that was the absolute WORST food in the Mexican Market.

Frommer's Review:

"If you've come to San Antonio with the idea of tasting traditional Tex-Mex as it is cooked day in and day out, this is a great place to come. Sure, you do see out-of-towners finding their way here because the restaurant is so famous, but you see a lot more locals than anybody else -- locals who know their city and know their restaurants."
