Sports recap

Posted in basketball, sports at 12:11 am by wingerz

I watched my only hockey game of the season last night – Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals. It was pretty exciting.

I tivo’d most of Game 6 tonight and caught up to realtime to see Dallas’s last possession live. This is actually pretty important to me because I don’t believe in watching recorded sporting events after the result has been decided. This game was meant to go to OT and the series to 7, especially with Wade missing those free throws at the end. Damn.

In any case, I still can’t believe it. The Heat play Jason Williams, Antoine Walker (his shimmy is one of the most annoying things ever), and Gary Payton. And they just won a championship. Does anyone else find this weird? And Shaq annoys me because he still takes every possible opportunity to criticize Kobe.

On the plus side, Alonzo had several awesome blocks and Dwayne is amazing.

Go Lakers!

Violent, yet strangely amusing

Top 10 Baseball Fights, but Pedro throwing Don Zimmer down to the ground is missing.

I love this game

The NBA Playoffs have been unbelievably good this year. There have been a ton of great games and schedule is just about perfect from a TV watcher’s perspective (in stark contrast to last year). It worked out nicely because the Western Conference games would come on around 10:30pm.

Four Game 7s so far. Three (Lakers, Cavs, Clippers) of them have not gone my way. It’s especially tough when the team you’re rooting for was up 3-1 or 3-2 at some point – makes those “what-ifs” all the more difficult to swallow. I’m cheering for the Mavs the rest of the way for the following reasons:

  • I hate the Suns .
  • I hate the Pistons.
  • I don’t really like the Heat.
  • Mark Cuban can be loud and obnoxious, but he is quite the basketball fan.
  • The Avery Bunch (Courtesy of Joey)
  • More nut action (Courtesy of deadspin.com, which I just started reading on Grant’s recommendation)
