When you’re baseball team plays in a small market on the West Coast you get a little fired up to watch them in prime time, HD coverage on ESPN. It was not to be tonight as the Yanks-A’s game was postponed. Boo the rain people. Boo it! Okay, the sports world goes on so we’ll tone it down a bit.
The state of Kentucky continues to watch the basketball recruting process closer than people watched the birth of a baby panda on the interwebs. John Wall is living it up. One day he’s going to UK, now he’s talking to Billy D, and the NBA still beckons. He might even end up in Europe. All I know is that this guy knows how to market the John Wall brand. I love it. I’ve pretty much stopped keeping up with it from day-to-day because the information changes on a daily basis, but it will be fun to see where he ends up. UK fans are also closely following the recruitment of the Henry brothers. They’re almost as much as an enigma as everyone knows they’re down to KU and UK but that changes constantly. Will they visit Lexington? Who’s knows at this point, but they’ll eventually be somewhere and that will be another fun signing for one of those universities.
Baseball is being played in a few places and a few of the web site’s teams are still going strong. The Tigers are still first in a close Central. The Reds aren’t playing too bad. The A’s are in a bit of a lull offensively but the bats will wake up. Hopefully the pitching holds out.
Golf has slowed a bit after the Masters but the Pudge Cup kicks off this week. We might drop an update for you from time to time and let you know who’s playing adequately. Let’s be honest, none of the guys in this league are shooting 70’s, but it’ll be fun.
The NBA playoffs are in full swing. The Mavs and Spurs are fighting it out again tonight and I expect TGC’s boys down in Dallas to get the better of their Texas breathren before it’s over. Duncan is hobbling and Sir-Flops-A-Lot is out for the Spurs as well. Not looking good to pick up #5 this year for my boys in Silver and Black. I just hope Lebron gets it from Kobe in the Finals. I haven’t liked that guy since he stole J.R. Rider’s dunk in the Slam Dunk Contest at All-Star weekend. Yes, the alleged rape, his general attitude, and everything else that comes with disliking Kobe does not bother me as much as him stealing the East Bay Funk Dunk to win a dunk contest. I’ve never pretended to be sane or fair folks. It’s just the way I am.
Our favorite thing today will be Tiger Woods 2008 on the Playstation. TGC is fervently trying to play his way up to face off against the virtual eDayStat. Who needs to pay 60 bones for a new game when you can play last year’s golf game for next to nothing? The only standing rule is no one plays with Vijay Singh. It’s get ugly if I had to tackle someone in the middle of a round. Have a few drinks, enjoy some playoff basketball, and if you can find some baseball on TV then bless you. Enjoy the night folks.
