Don't listen to me

I'm picking the Spurs tonight. 86-82 with Brent Barry nailing a go ahead 3 in the final minute.
So I was off by one game and one Spur...that's why I don't gamble. Well it turned out to be a decent little NBA Finals after all. I still like San Antonio tonight, but Tony Parker needs to turn it up. Maybe Eva can get him to play harder...I mean better tonight.

Much ado about nothing this week: the NBA age minimum- just spend a year in Europe or the NBDL, the Yankees big comeback- only counts for one win against the D Rays even, Curt Schilling's return- more ridiculous quotes like how he doesn't see how a Red Sox could go to the Yankees. Of course he was pointing at Roger Clemens, you know the guy Dan Duquette said was washed up about 7 years ago. Face it Curt, it's all about the cash and you know it because it's why you went to Arizona and Boston and if Boston dropped you this winter and George came calling, you would be kissing Lou Gehrig's plaque in Monument Park.

From the mind of the bored and borderline insane: Did you see Mr & Mrs. Smith yet? We went to see it last night and I was entertained. Anyone who wonders why Pitt would dump Jennifer Aniston for Angelina should see this movie, or ask Hubie Brown "You're Brad Pitt. You're in your early 40s and at the peak of your popularity. You want to start a family but your wife doesnt want kids because of her career, which is at the edge of falling off as it is. Along comes Angelina Jolie who has tremendous upside. She's younger, more attractive and willing to have a family. Plus you know she is wilder. If I'm Brad Pitt, it's an easy decision."

Tremendous upside in this page, if I could ever show consistency. I'm still hoping to be a 1st round pick.

Kobe and Shaq: Revenge of the Diesel

" I am not familiar with that name" Shaq when asked if he would speak with Kobe. Ouch. Talk about your disses. Man someone get these guys in a studio so we can get some bad rap songs to spark this fued. Kobe can be MC Shan while Shaq is KRS-One. I can't believe Phil is back in LA. Can they trade Kobe and get equal value back? Go ahead and bet on the Lakers next year- they aren't going anywhere.

Fantasy baseball has not been too good to me so far this year. Thankfully intramural softball has started. After 2 games played, my OPS is 2.000. I should retire now. I am becoming the Ichiro of this league- just slapping singles all over the place (well at least to the left side of the field). If only I could still run fast, I'd have more doubles.

I'm picking the Spurs tonight. 86-82 with Brent Barry nailing a go ahead 3 in the final minute.

Bronson and not Mrs. Arroyo Posted by Hello

Prediction? ......Pain!!

No, not to the viewers of the NBA Finals, but to the participants. The Spurs and Pistons are going to play some hard-nosed close games over the next couple of weeks and basketball fans should tune in. I think the Spurs will win in 6 because Detroit hasn't been as consistent and the Spurs did real well against Phoenix.

Painful was watching Scary Movie 3. Have you ever watched a movie and wished for the Wayans Brothers to show up? I never thought I would until last night. Painful is sitting at work and mentally not being there at all. I just find myself waiting for some vacation time (cue the Go-Gos song).

I'm leaving now, but check above for a picture of Red Sox hurler Bronson Arroyo enjoying the spoils of the Sawx WS victory. The irony is that Mr. Arroyo challenged
Boston Rob to remain faithful to Amber. Say that doesn't look like Mrs. Arroyo in that phot. Someone get Jackie Chiles on the phone.
