San Antonio Spurs fan makes giant Spurs pizza for Game 4


There is no better food to accompany a playoff game than pizza. Maybe wings, but you really can’t go wrong with a few slices of pizza while you root for your team to bring home a championship. A San Antonio Spurs fan who works at a pizza restaurant took that to another level on Thursday.

Reddit user Courtdog said his buddy made the pizza you see above in advance of Game 4 of the NBA Finals. Unfortunately, the giant pie couldn’t bring the Spurs any luck and they wound up letting the Miami Heat tie the series at 2-2. The good news is I’m sure there were plenty of leftovers. The chef and his friends will probably be eating this pizza for the rest of the series.

Believe it or not, I would even call this giant za better artwork than this masterpiece. Do you agree?

San Antonio Spurs fans celebrate Game 3 win like they won NBA title (Video)

The San Antonio Spurs destroyed the Miami Heat in Game 3 to take a 2-1 lead on Tuesday night. After splitting the first two games of the series in Miami, Tim Duncan and company gained the upperhand with a 113-77 victory. As you would expect, Spurs fans were loving it.

The series is far from over, but a collection of fans were so excited that they decided to party in the streets as though their team had just won the whole damn thing. We’re talking car horns beeping and kids in diapers on top of a pickup truck.

With the way some of these Spurs fans were acting, you’d swear the team didn’t have two wins to go.

Spurs fan screams ‘We did it!’ after Game 2 win over Grizzlies

Tim-Duncan-SpursThe San Antonio Spurs have put themselves in an ideal situation against the Memphis Grizzlies in the Western Conference Finals, but there is still plenty of work left to be done. San Antonio took a 2-0 lead with a solid performance in overtime on Tuesday night, which was enough to overwhelm at least one fan in the building.

As you can see, some Spurs fan screamed “We did it!” after the final buzzer sounded and made the win official. Keep in mind that this is a San Antonio team that has won four NBA championships with Gregg Popovich and Tim Duncan, so a 2-0 lead in a conference final is hardly enough to please its fans. Well, except that guy.

Unlike the lady who ruined the broadcast of a Spurs game against the Golden State Warriors earlier in the playoffs, this gentleman’s screech at the end of the game was harmless. Sometimes it’s just impossible to contain your excitement after a postseason victory.

Screaming Spurs Fan Lady identified?

The media has been searching for the identity of the mystery woman the Internet has come to call “Screaming Spurs Lady.”

As we wrote on Monday night, one woman ruined the experience for everyone watching Game 1 of the San Antonio Spurs-Golden State Warriors series on TNT by screaming throughout the end of the game. She was sitting close enough to the TNT announcers that her screams were audible every time the Spurs did something great.

Multiple San Antonio media outlets have tried to find the woman — a few claim they have — and even Deadspin sent out the Bat Signal. So far, there have been a few different claims about the woman, but we think KENS 5 in San Antonio found the real answer to the mystery.

KENS 5 says they received a phone call from someone claiming to be a friend of the shrieker, whom they say is 23-year-old dental assistant Val Garcia.

“I think everyone was pretty loud,” Garcia told KENS. “I just have such a high-pitch scream.

“I swear my eyes were going to pop out of my face. I was totally out of breath. After the game I felt lightheaded (and) my voice was shot.”

Deadspin’s Tim Burke believes the screaming fan is in this photo.

Below is a picture of Garcia next to the possible screamer:

Screaming Spurs Fan Lady ruins game for viewers (Video)

If you were watching the fourth quarter and overtimes of the San Antonio Spurs-Golden State Warriors playoff game on Monday night, you undoubtedly heard “Screaming Spurs Fan Lady” yelling every time the Spurs did something good on the court.

This woman’s shrieks were so persistent and so annoying, she stole the focus of the game away from the players on the floor.

See, the problem is that the Spurs were getting crushed by the Warriors in the third quarter and fourth. It wasn’t until late in the game when San Antonio made an 18-2 run in the final four minutes of regulation that she became painfully noticeable. But once the Spurs started to come back, she was unbearable.

[UPDATE: Has the Screaming Spurs Fan been identified?]

In the video up top, you can hear her truly losing her mind when Danny Green made a 3-pointer to tie the game at 106 and send it to overtime.

According to Deadspin’s Tim Burke, the annoying fan could not be heard from the crowd mic. He surmised that the woman was sitting right behind TNT’s announcers, which would make her one of these people:

‘I want some nasty’ shirts already popular among Spurs fans (Pictures)

As expected, the phrase “I want some nasty” has caught on quickly in San Antonio. When the Spurs erased a nine-point deficit in the fourth quarter of Game 1 against the Thunder, they did so after Gregg Popovich was heard urging his players to dig deep and yelling “I want some nasty!” at them. The team responded by grinding out a huge victory, and a new catch phrase has been born.

As you can see from the photos above, the Spurs’ new slogan is already contagious. A fan was spotted wearing a shirt with Pop’s face on it and “I want some nasty” written across the front during San Antonio’s Game 2 win. The website Promo-SA.com is also selling shirts with the phrase on them for $20. The last time the Spurs lost, the Stanley Cup playoffs hadn’t even begun. Given their current winning streak, it’s safe to say everything Popovich says at the moment is solid gold.

104-year-old fan Theresa Sanchez attends first Spurs game

Most of us aren’t going to make it to see our 104th birthday. If any of us do, it’s highly unlikely that we will be heading to the stadium or arena to watch our favorite team play. That’s what separates people like Theresa Sanchez from the rest of the world. According to Eva Ruth Moravec of Spurs Nation, the 104-year-old Sanchez attended her first Spurs game on Monday night. She has been a fan of the team since the 1970s.

A season ticket holder who volunteers at HCR Manor Care gave Sanchez and four other residents tickets to the game against the Blazers, which San Antonio fortunately won by a comfortable margin.

“I was so surprised when they told me I was coming,” Sanchez said. “I never thought I would come to a game, and this year, they’re pretty good. It’s so beautiful. I’m so lucky, and I’m really happy.”

Sanchez says she would watch the Spurs when they first came to town (as the Dallas Chaparrals) in 1973 so she would be prepared to recap the games with her son when he came to visit. She has since watched every game, and family members say she even used to request dinner in front of the TV when the game was on. When her eyesight started deteriorating, Sanchez’s granddaughter bought her a big-screen to make sure she could see the TV clearly.

As a 100th birthday present, Manu Ginobli gave Sanchez a pair of autographed sneakers. She proudly wore them to the game on Monday night to watch her team clinch the top spot in the Western Conference playoffs.

The fact that Sanchez is not the first fan who is over 100 years old to take in a professional basketball game this year is one of the most remarkable things I’ve ever heard.
