The Spurs in the NBA playoffs is like a rite of spring.
 
It's April, which means that the +San Antonio Spurs are about to make another Championship run. We took a look at what's behind all their postseason magic over on the +SA Flavor blog.

I want to know who ordered the Miller Lite! "The $765 bar tab, which was paid for by the San Antonio Chamber of Commerce, included four bottles of Magnificat wine, three bottles from the Jordan Vineyard & Winery and one Miller Lite."

The San Antonio Express-News has learned more about the city's attempt to woo the Oakland Raiders here through a trove of documents obtained under the state's open-records act.
