Along with all of the other 2006 demons to be exorcised, Laura Miller’s gaffe can be retired into history, rather than being a still-current curse. Miller, of course, made the mistake of announcing parade plans with Dallas up 2-0 in the finals. They would go on to lose four straight. It was Miami, in fact, that jumped the gun this time.
With the championship safely in hand, though, Dallas can now begin planning their parade in earnest. City officials disclosed Sunday night that the parade will take place some time during the week of June 20. And, hey, they probably still have those 2006 plans.
The date hasn’t been set yet, but the event “will likely take place the week of June 20th” according to city spokesman Frank Librio and could end at the Mavs home, the American Airlines Center.
We’ll obviously keep you posted as more details are announced.
