Wild World of Wednesday - May 28, 2008

The NHL Stanley Cup Finals are down to the Pittsburg Penguins and the Detroit Red Wings with the latter ahead two games to none. In fact, the Pens have been completely shut out and haven’t scored a goal yet in the series. I haven’t been giving this sport nearly enough attention so check out Bringing Hockey Back where hockey is given the justice it deserves.

I thought I was going to pass out watching the Lakers game last night. I was on LA Ball Talk’s live blog for the game with a bunch of other Lakers fans. Of course we are all biased, but we came to the conclusion that there is a home court advantage with the refs. Oh, and that call at the end that was a no call was a good no call. The analysts at the end of the game even agreed. By the way, I highly recommend participating in the live blog events on the LA Ball Talk site. Many other independent bloggers show up and there isn’t silly personal bashing between participants.

So far in the NFL this week: Former Buccaneer Michael Pittman has signed with the Broncos. This move was made as insurance to cover Travis Henry since his injury has clouded his future. The Jets picked up Musa Smith to help them out with their running game. Smith has spent the last 5 seasons with the Ravens. In San Francisco, undrafted rookie free-agent Ezra Butler out of Nevada has been waived in light of an arrest for marijuana possession. It is truly sad that another young, promising athlete has taken the wrong path.

Tiger Woods held a press conference today to talk about his knee rehab. He explained that he wasn’t 100% with his game to play over the weekend, basically too rusty. Tiger is set on making his reappearance into the PGA at the U.S. Open June 9-15 at the Torrey Pines course in San Diego.

Today in Sports History

1957 - The National League approves the moves of the Brooklyn Dodgers and the New York Giants to the California, provided both clubs make their request before October 1 and move at the same time. Thank you.

I wish I had tickets (including a flight) to go to one of the playoff games. Are you going to make it to any?

It is not unreasonable that Lakers tickets would come my way but not entirely likely either! I'm hoping to catch one!
