Quote of the day
"This was one of the best games in, I don't even know, man. I don't want to be in a game like this, where the game can go either way. ... I'm just like, OK, what did I get myself into?" -- Lakers forward Ron Artest, after a 4-point win in game 7 of the NBA finals
Was it smothering defense on both ends, or a matchup of two gangs that couldnít shoot straight? Regardless, the Lakers shot a bit straighter down the stretch. And the NBA season is now mercifully over. But not the NBA news cycle. Next the draft, then the LeBron sweepstakes.
Ubaldo Jimenez showed that he could easily handle one of the better hitting AL teams. On Sunday, Roy Halladay gets his shot at the same team. Cole Hamels works the day before, so this is a tough stretch of games for Twinkie hitters.
Sunday is Fatherís Day. Iím looking forward to hunkering down in my favorite recliner with a cool drink, watching the U.S. Open. Hope your weekend is equally enjoyable.
