Monday Morning Meissnervations













Morning y'all. It's Monday, let's see what's going on.

************************************************

Lakers go up 2-0 on Orlando with a 101-96 OT win last night. No, I didn't watch the game. Too much good stuff on the History Channel. Magic had a chance to win at the end of regulation, but a lay up(No, there was no goaltending) just wouldn't go. I would like to see Orlando win the series, but if they drop either of their upcoming home games, you can then save everyone the trouble and mail that gawd-awful looking trophy to Los Angeles. But IF the Magic could win the two home games, then this series could go the whole seven. We'll just have to wait and see.

************************************************

Detroit goes up 3-2 in the Stanley Cup finals with a 5-0 win Saturday. First game in five that wasn't either a 3-1 or 4-2 final. After Detroit controlled the first two games, then Pittsburgh did what they had to do to win game three, then got the goaltending they needed to win game four, the wheels fell off in game five. The Red Wings got solid goaltending Saturday, while the Penguins didn't. Detroit controlled the flow, spent a bunch of time in the Pittsburgh zone and forced the Penguins into numerous mistakes. And, you think LeBron James was a poor sport after losing the NBA East Finals? Who's a bigger crybaby, Sydney Crosby or Evgeni Malkin? Crosby is clearly one of the NHL's marque players, but when things go South for his team, Crosby will give out more cheap shots in one period than Gretzky gave out in his career. Malkin is another one of those dish it out but not take it guys too. Even if Detroit weren't my favorite team, the way Pittsburgh plays makes it easy to root against them. Game six is in Pittsburgh Tuesday night, with game seven (And it would not surprise me if Pittsburgh wins tomorrow)back in Detroit on Friday. The games are on NBC in the U.S. of A.

************************************************

Speaking of hockey, are you as tired of the after-the-whistle garbage that, at times, has dominated this year's Stanley Cup playoffs? It almost appears that the NHL publicly said knock it off, just to insure that the players would increase the amount of testosterone-laced manhood. It has disgusted me more than I was the year the NHL locked out it's platyers for the entire season. Knock it off and just play the games already, will ya? Sheesh!

************************************************

Tiger Woods won The Memorial yesterday, shooting a final round 65 to beat Jim Furyk by a stroke. Is this guy a machine, or what? Hit every fairway yesterday, drained putts like they were all gimmes to. And it was the 5th time in his career he's come back from 5 strokes down after 54 holes to win. Wow.

************************************************

Roger Federer won the French Open in straight sets yesterday and Tony Stewart won the NASCAR event at Pocono, winner in the car he owns. That was pretty cool to hear about that.

************************************************

The Tampa Bay Rays, just when it looks like they're finally getting on a roll, throw their bullpen out there and find a way to lose. Tampa Bay gave up three runs in the bottom of the eighth yesterday, even though the ball, at least that I can remember, never left the infield. Simply brutal. And to think I switched over from one of those police video shows to watch that garbage! Yankees came from 3-1 down to win 4-3 at Band Box Stadium. BTW: How can they spend so much money on the new Yankess Stadium and have it come out so screwed up, especially in right field. It reminds me of a lot of high school fields, where the fence seemingly gains very little depth as it goes from the right field line over towards center field. Someone really screwed up.

************************************************

The Canadian Football League is just nine days away from the start of pre-season action. I'm really looking forward to seeing how the Saskatchewan Roughriders do this season, staring with next Wednesday's non-counter at Edmonton. Check out the action not only at http://www.cfl.ca/, but also at http://rodpedersen.blogspot.com/. Roddy covers the CFL like a blanket and may well have the best blog around. Check it out and tell him I sent ya. He's also awesome calling the play-by-play too. Catch the games at http://www.620ckrm.com/.
