Great game last night, can't wait for game seven. I picked the Heat to win the series and I'm sticking to it but it could definitely go either way. As long as we get another great game, I don't really care who wins.
Tough turnaround for the Spurs with game seven on the road after blowing a 13 point fourth quarter lead. Some fans will cry about fouls that were missed towards the end, but calls are missed on both sides of every game in every year. Bottom line, if the Spurs had made their free throws down the stretch, they'd be planning a championship parade right now. Plus, have to admit I enjoyed Manu Ginobili not getting the call at the end. Karma for the years of flopping.
Would hate to have to interview him, but I find a Gregg Popovich interview to be very entertaining.
Gratuitous Eye Candy:
Can't stand this song; just hit mute and enjoy.
Not a huge fan of his work, but this is worth watching. Start at about the 4:00 minute mark, enjoyed him mocking the media.

Danny Green has been nails from behind the arc. He's already set an NBA record for most three-pointers made (25-38, 65%), and possibly has two games left to add to his lead. My pick before the series was Heat in six; looks like Spurs in seven at this point.
Let's just say she didn't make it this far on her big brain. Have to love a former stripper/reality show star asking serious questions to another woman who can't walk and chew gum at the same time. No one judging or watching these contests care what these women think about big issues. They're not going to solve or cure anything based on their answer. It's a beauty contest, nothing more, nothing less. Stop wasting time and embarrassing them.
Of course, if I play one horribly awful answer from a beauty contest; I also have to re-post this classic.
Don't know much about Justin Rose and really, the course won this weekend with no one finishing the event under par. So, here's a Texan who hit a hole in one. Every hole in one is at least a bit lucky, but this one was almost all luck. Watch, it lands in the rough and takes a huge bounce.
This Day In Sports History:
June 12th, 1991. The Chicago Bulls defeat the Los Angeles Lakers 108-101 to win the NBA finals in five games and their first championship in franchise history. Finals MVP Michael Jordan had 30 points, 10 assists and 5 steals in the victory.
Reports of basketball sized hail in San Antonio last night as it was raining threes.
Apparently we needed to study the effects of not enough sleep. Not for health reasons, but because it has the same effect as "beer goggles". One of my favorite shows, Mythbusters, already tested this.
C.J. Wilson of the Angels didn't need beer goggles for the woman he's engaged too. Think he outkicked his coverage?
This Day In Sports History:
Roy Oswalt (left two pitches into the second inning with a groin injury), Pete Munro, Kirk Saarloos, Brad Lidge, Octavio Dotel, and Billy Wagner combined to no-hit the Yankees at Yankee Stadium on this day in 2003. The six pitchers combined for 13 strikeouts (including four in one inning from Dotel) in the Astros 8-0 win in game two of their first ever series with the the New York Yankees. It was the first time the Yankees had been no-hit at home since 1952.
Jimmy Kimmel - Mean NBA Tweets:
Very funny. Well done.
Jeep Vs. Above-Ground Pool:
Ahh summer, the time when people ramp up their stupid stunts.
What a run from the Heat last night. It was a close, good game for about two and a half quarters, but with the Spurs up 1 point, the Heat went on 33-5 run and the game was over. LeBron James and Dwyane Wade shot a combined 12-30 yet the Heat won by 19 points. Scary good.
Nadal Wins The French Open:
He made history by becoming the first player ever to win the same major event eight times, but is he any closer to being considered the best of all time? Winning 12 major titles, and counting, during the prime of Roger Federer certainly improves his resume but I won't go there yet. He has the career grand slam, but only one each at the US and Australian Opens; would like to see him win a few more hard court titles before we give him the GOAT crown.
He's at the NBA Finals, he's partying with AJ McCarron during Spring Break, he's starring in music videos; when does this guy sleep?
