The weekend is here (yippy!) so let’s take a look at some stories that will take place and some that have already.
… Game 6 of the Boston-Cleveland series is tonight. Mr. Game 6 himself Daniel Gibson will not play. Gibson has been great in Game 6’s the last two years. This isn’t a good sign for the Cavs… or is it? With Boobie out of the line up, someone is going to have to get his minutes. It will probably be someone who hasn’t played any significant minutes. Someone who has been stuck on the end of the bench. Someone who can come off the bench, play the 2-guard position and be ready to shoot, and make, the 3-ball even though he hasn’t shot one in a game for about a month. You know who fits that description… that’s right… BILLY FREAKIN THOMAS. BILLY could dress tonight and should see the floor. The last time he shed his suit for shorts, he canned several big threes. He’s a gunner. He’s a shooter. He’s a winner. Put BILLY in. Give him a chance and he won’t let you down. This is BILLY FREAKIN THOMAS we are talking about. BILL-Y… BILL-Y…BILL-Y… and BILL-Y-THOM-AS, clap, clap, clap-clap-clap, should be what rings out in The Q tonight. Rosenberg, make this happen.
… The Tribe’s starting pitchers streak of scoreless innings came to an end in the second inning yesterday at 44.1 innings. The streak should still be going but Aaron Laffey did himself in by blowing a double play ball and throwing it into right field. As nice as it would have been to see this streak continue all year, we knew that wasn’t going to happen. But they haven’t allowed an earned run in 50.1 innings. This pitching staff is something special. Even Phil Dawson half retarded step brother is pitching great. Offense, stop letting them down. Julio Franco is still out there. Maybe they should bring him back. And how about the Hot Dog Eating Champion coming in and saving the game, and Betancourt. Great save by Kobayashi.
… The Preakness Stakes is Saturday. I’m sure PETA is fired up about that. The favorite is Kentucky Derby winner Big Brown. I think he’ll win again. You know why? He has a new pair of shoes. That’s right. The newest pair of cool horse shoes which can be comparable to Air Jordan’s. This doesn’t seem fair. No one can beat a horse that can dunk.
… WNBA!!! WNBA!!! WNBA!!!
