Cliff Notes: Wednesday, May 7 2008
-Celtics, Sidney Ponson
The Important Stuff
-The Celtics/Cavs game was ugly, but Boston eeked out a 76-72 win. In lieu of running away with our poll question, Lebron James celebrated by having his worst game of the playoffs (12 pts, 10 TOs).
-Rick Carlisle to the Mavericks? Mike D'Antoni to the Bulls? Why is no one interviewing Herb Williams?
-The altered Cedric Benson report details him being drunk and confused. That's how most Giants fans get after a Barry Zito start.
-The shocker: Joba Chamberlain blows a game! Joba allowed a three-run go-ahead HR as the Indians defeat the Yankees 5-3. Joba now joins this list of players who have blown games:
1) Every relief pitcher who has ever played Major League Baseball.
The Stupid Stuff
-The horse that died at the Kentucky Derby (Eight Bells) has been accused of taking steroids. It's trainer demands a drug test be taken. Let me get this straight. It's more urgent to test a horse for steroids than it is to have tested Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa for steroids.
-The "I was a complete mental case last year, but now I am a great pitcher" award goes to Scott Olsen, who threw 8 2/3 innings of two-hit ball to improve to 4-1.
-The "I'm king of the world!" award goes to David Delucci, who was the lucky one to have homered off of Joba Chamberlain.
-The "Let's just mail it in the rest of the season" award goes to the Detroit Tigers.
What to Watch for Tonight
-I guess the Pistons' and Lakers' games are watchable. Although why watch something that you know the ending to?
