Let’s recap everything that happened this weekend..
… The Cavs took care of business as expected on Friday. A great win after a horrible loss to close out those punk ass thugs from Washington. It was by far the Cavs best game of the playoffs, maybe of the entire season. On Friday, when I said less Wally, I really meant more Wally as long as he isn’t shooting like Seal from the free throw line. (What are you the last two year, Seal, 2-for-14?) Wally was hitting, Boobie was Game 6 Gibson and LeBron was LeBron. The only thing that sucked about the game, BILLY was in a suit and didn’t get a chance to play. I wasn’t pleased when I was informed of that. Oh well, the Cavs won, got a few extra days off and now it’s on to Boston.
… As great as the win was, as impressive as Cleveland played, there was some feeling missing for or was just plain different than what a normal very important Game 6 usually has. I wasn’t that excited about the game and I wasn’t that happy when they won. Don’t get me wrong, I’m thrilled they advanced but I feel like they shouldn’t have even played Friday. I was talking to once-dedicated-commenter-now-just-dedicated-reader Rosenberg before the game and he said it best. “I don’t even thing I’ll be happy if they win. I’ll be more relieved than anything else.” Friday night, I was very relieved. Tomorrow, the real series begins, so we’ll hold off on the preview until then.
… Way to show up Atlanta! That is the Hawks we all expected all series. You couldn’t even make the Celtics work for it? My goodness what a waste of a Game 7. Remember how bad the Cavs played in Game 7 against Detroit two years ago? This game, the Hawks made the Cavs look like NBA Champs in that game. As much as I would have liked Atlanta to win and play the Cavs, go home ATLers. You don’t deserve to advance if you play that bad with your season on the line.
… Did you see those “Crybaby 23” shirts? First, Washington fans were really stretching and they were horrible shirts. Just plain stupid. Second, they were sponsored by Papa Johns Pizza. When I saw that I couldn’t believe PJP would support anything that put down some one else, especially someone who a whole town/state worships. Well, apparently Papa Johns realized they made a mistake. They are offering large, one topping pizzas for 23 cents on Thursday to Cleveland area stores (That better included Akron area stores too.) So all you Cavs fans, order a shit ton of pizza on Thursday. (Rosie, maybe a cookout Tuesday then pizza for Thursdays game?)
… Tribe’s got the Royals this weekend. This has to be the series the offense gets on track. It’s bad when the Yankees are averaging more injuries per game than the Indians are runs. That’s what I wrote Friday. I hate the Indians. I think a line-up of me and the six guys who read this site could do just as good as the Indians offense. I know we can score zero runs, that’s for sure. It’s simple guys, See ball, Hit ball.
… The Kentucky Derby showed us all while women, even as horses, shouldn’t compete with men. Why? Because they’ll get killed. Ba-dum, ching. OK, horrible joke. This was the worse possible outcome of the Derby. Now, we have an undefeated horse (he’s run in all of four races) going for the Triple Crown. Those will be interesting pieces for SportsCenter for two weeks. Lucky us. Then we had the tragic event of Eight Bells being killed on the track. (Quick note: I think it’s sad when a horse dies like that but is it really tragic? Does anyone’s life really change? Not even the owner or trainer’s life does. Can we all agree to stop using the word tragic? It’s more over used that Mike Vick jokes.) Because of that, now we get to hear stories from everyone’s favorite lesbian group, PETA. Look, PETA, we all know you do anything to get in the spot light just to annoy our daily lives a little more but give it up. This was a racing horse and sometimes this happens. How come we don’t hear you complaining when the races are over and the horses are put up to stud? Don’t you think pimping out a horse is a little cruel? I mean, they are having sex with opposite sex horses so it’s something PETA members don’t understand. But horse racing is not a cruel sport. The horse aren’t mistreated and abused. In fact, most of the live better lives than 90% of the people in this country. They get pampered all day, washed, rode, petted, feed and by the time they are three years old, they’re only job (besides avoiding the glue factory) is to have sex. I’d say horses have it pretty good. PETA can join the Washington Wizards and vanish off the face of the earth. The world would be a better place.
… GFB’s birthday was awesome. We went to Laser Quest. I dominated. Well, I finished fifth out of 29 and second in our group of about 20. The only person who did better than me was GFB-2. GFB finished somewhere in the bottom half. A weak showing for sure. Then yesterday, we had dinner at GFB’s house and he got the best present of all from me. A true indication of what I think of him. Three dirty diapers. You see, GFB has a tendency to put his daughters diapers in my car or the GF’s car or in my coat, so I needed to get him back. Wrapped up diapers that made his house stink was a good start but I have a feeling this could quickly turn into a war. At least I know he can’t shoot me.
… Picked up Mario Cart for the Wii. Mario Cart was my favorite game for the Nintendo 64 and was more then excited when I saw it came out on the Wii. It didn’t disappoint. Great game.
