Then it was back to the hotel and work. I had to transcribe some interviews. The NBA did some of the transcribing for us, but not all. I typed a few notes, did some research on playoff games in which a player at least 38 years old scored at least 27 points, then got to work writing my Tim Duncan column. Didn’t finish until about 8:15 p.m.

Around 8:45 p.m., Jackie O. and I walked over to the Riverwalk for dinner. You can find a lot better places to eat in San Antone than the Riverwalk, but the Riverwalk is convenient and a fun place to walk around. We strolled around and settled in at Rio Rio Cantina, a place I’ve been a bunch of times.

Solid Mexican joint, with a good television to watch the second half of Pacers-Heat. A.C. Slater soon joined us. I had shrimp enchiladas, and they were mediocre. Then Indiana squandered a fourth-quarter lead. But the company was good, so all was not lost.

A.C. stuck around to meet RFD for a night on the town. Jackie O. and I walked back to the hotel. I was beat. But we walked past the Alamo, which was worth the trip all by itself. Maybe tomorrow I’ll go inside.
