Where Do I Start...



I really don’t know where to start today. I know that Penguins fans have stopped holding their collective breath since the team finally scored in the series with the Red Wings. The Pens came out on top in Game 3 by a score of 3-2. Sidney Crosby scored the first two goals for the Pens and carried them to a 9-0 home playoff record this year.

The Celtics have taken a lead in the series against the Pistons 3-2 with the win in Game 5 106-102. The hype of a Lakers-Celtics final is getting extremely loud now.

The Dodgers are making me mad enough to scream. With a 1-0 lead into the bottom of the 9th against the Cubs, pitcher Takashi Saito walked two batters. The Cubs capitalized and tied the score. The game went into the 10th where the Cubs prevailed. Although Derek Lowe pitched seven shutout innings it ended up being meaningless in the end. The Cubs swept the Dodgers. Great.

Which reminds me…did you hear the one about the minor league baseball player that was traded for bats? Yes, bats! Bummer. Read the whole story here.

I haven’t been keeping up with The French Open and really need to spend more time on tennis in general. The U.S. men seem to be faring well on the clay.


Today in Sports History

1922 - US Supreme Court rules that organized baseball is a sport and not a business. This means that it is not subject to the antitrust laws that govern the business world.

1980 – Larry Bird is named NBA Rookie of the Year, beating out Magic Johnson.

I hadn't heard about the guy who was traded for a bunch of bats. I feel bad for that guy. Ha.

I hope you get some Lakers tickets...

Great site!

Thanks for visiting mine!

Do you follow MLL at all? (That would be Major League Lacrosse). If so I would love to know if it has a following on the west coast.

Thanks.

Hi AEM - I am actually in the process of getting some Lacrosse pieces that will run in the future. If there is a sport, I try to cover it. I welcome guest posts as well - if you'd like to contribute and write a lacrosse post it would be great!

I watch mostly college (since I follow the ACC and the BE in particular North Carolina (my school) and Syracuse (close to where I am exiled, err live at now).

But if I can get you any stuff on the MLL (San Francisco they are out of) I will definitely do it for you. Love to see the blogging community flourish, as well as the game of lax.

Awesome AEM! It's all about the independent blogging community and sports less covered as far as I'm concerned! Thanks!
