    Stop with the "Is Hilton magic back?"

    Stop with all the ďis the magic backĒ talk. It is too subjective to label. There is no one way to describe it. There is no measurable level to compare it too. If fans are leaving the game with voices lost and ears ringing but overly excited for the next chance to lose it again, then itís back. If you watch the game on TV only because you had no means of being there but would give anything to have been, then itís back. When the fans canít wait to fill their seats and our players canít wait to take the court while the opposing team doesnít want to, then its back. Itís not about wins or losses. Itís not about noise level. Itís about the anticipation for each great thing that happens inside of Hilton Coliseum and the passion that explodes when it does, whether it is a steal, block, shot, dunk, or amazing win. For me, it came back to life when Fred first addressed Cyclone nation as Head coach. Stop trying to measure it. Get your *** to a game and just enjoy that Magic feeling!

    We could ask if the Magic is back in the Hilton.

    I believe I heard John Walters say that Hilton Magic was back.
    Who am I to argue?

    I think it needs a promo first to see if we still like it. It could have changed when no one was looking...
