Richie's out the door, which doesn't stop our Friends from sending along photos snapped at the American Airlines Center last night, during Stars-Sharks Game 5. Says the Friend who passed along this photo from the gift shop, where, apparently, Dallas' one-and-done NBA franchise is completely cleaning house, from the head coach to head coverings:
"The fan shop is trying to unload all kinds of Mavs playoff swag. Notice that the hat is even from the 2007 playoffs!!! I guess they don't want to remember this year's debacle. It was kind of funny how no one was even touching the stuff. Oh, how far have we fallen."
And, of course, our Friend signs off with a "Go Stars!" --Robert Wilonsky
