The Patience of Joey

And to think Joey Meyer wanted to get back into coaching...

You've got to give him this, though: He's taking this injury-plagued season in stride, and somehow or another he's keeping his sense of humor, if not his balance.

The Mad Ants lost again Tuesday, 124-108, to the Maine Red Claws. That's 22 losses in 35 games, if anyone is counting.

Yet through it all, Meyer is keeping his composure.

He has plenty of time for the media. He answers his phone. He gives insightful answers. He says injuries are part of the game. Then he shrugs and looks ahead to the next game.

There are 15 left, if anybody is counting.
