Get a Load of the Pacers Bloggers!

We got a lot of crap going on between these Pacers bloggers. No, I am not talking about Cornrows, Eight Points, or Pacers Place. No, not even Pacers Pulse. I’m talking about Dunleavy, Granger, and Benson.

Let’s start with Benson.

Okay, right now, you just got to love Rod Benson’s blog. I found a post from him back in September. Okay, so that’s when all the Kanye West hoopla was going on.

And Benson got his laugh:


You also got Benson giving us a surprise:

So that’s what’s up with Rod. For more of this funny fellow, check him out at

But then, you also got Danny Granger, who’s just getting into this blogging business. His first blog was actually pretty good, I gotta admit. He talks about getting started and all that.

And like Eight Points Nine Seconds pointed out, Granger also starts to tak about the video games:

“I beat people bad online. I’ve got my secret screen name, and I’ll be talking to people too. I’ll be like “Yeah, I’ve got a game tomorrow,” and they’ll ask, “Oh, who do you play for?” I’ll say “I play for the Pacers,” and they’ll say “Quit lying.” They don’t believe me. It’s kind of funny.

I won’t give my gamer tag out to the public, but a few of my friends will try to tell their friends that Danny Granger’s in the room. And I’ll say, “What are you talking about? I’m not Danny Granger.” It’s the funniest thing in the world, because every time someone tries to put me in a room and say who I am, I act like I have no clue what they’re talking about.”

He ain’t playing Madden or the new NBA games that came out, isn’t he? But anyways, look out for Granger.

Finally, we end with Mike Dunleavy. He continues to blog about you people out there, himself, and his knee. In his new post, he talks about…well, his knee actually.

He also starts talking about comaparing his injury to the swine flu, as well as the injuries surrounding the team:

“In some ways I’m starting to feel like my injury woes are in the same category as the swine flu — highly contagious. Our team has had quite a bit of misfortune since the beginning of the season.

Jeff and Brandon have sprained their ankles, Troy fell and bruised his back, Luther and Travis have foot injuries and Tyler is just returning from his shin ordeal. On the average day, 5 guys sit out of practice. It is at times comical and other times it is depressing. If we could only combine all of are healthy body parts to build one complete player, then we would be in business.”

At the end, he hopes the Pacers play well and the injuries heal soon:

“Speaking of, we have won a couple in a row and everyone’s spirits are much better than they were after our tough start. We still have some major strides to make but things are looking up. I would love to see this group of guys get healthy and find out what we can do together … the sooner, the better, of course.”

And speaking of injuries, Mike, you gotta get yourself healthy soon. B-Rush is struggling a bit. But, hey, that’s why we brought in Earl Watson, Solomon Jones, and Dahntay Jones.

And they haven’t been disappoiting.

And neither have these Pacers’ blogs either.
