There was never a doubt last night in Boston, especially after that 21-0, three touchdown bombing run. The Warriors had already broken the Celts’ will in Game Five by The Bay on Monday. That Game Six clincher was a formality, in my mind.
That’s four titles in eight years, with a league-worst 15-50 record sprinkled in in 2019-20. Sure looks like Klay Thompson makes a difference, wouldn’t you say?
That is a crowded, bunched up leader board at the U.S. Open. Just the way I like it as I head to the fridge on my way to the couch.
Smarmy Mickelson shot a 78 on his 52nd birthday. That wasn’t quite the 83 I was hoping for, but it’s a good start. That four-putt double bogey was nice! With any luck, he’ll have to hit the road after today’s second round. Bye.
Oh, by the way, Canadians like first round leader Adam Hadwin really are nicer people than we are. We could all stand to be more “Canadian.”
So Dallas and Houston are among the eleven U.S. cities who will host World Cup competition in 2026. That’s cool. Yep. It’s just a matter of time until soccer is the most popular sport in the United States. (I have literally been hearing that noise for 60 years.)
That was a beautiful gesture by the Bears at Thursday’s minicamp workout. All 90 players wore jersey number 41, in honor of the late Brian Piccolo on the 52nd anniversary of his death from cancer at the age of 26. Yeah, I got a little lumpy…
And that’s a nice “alt” black helmet that the Saints broke out!
Final day of minicamp fun? The Panthers set up a bouncy-house at practice. The Cowboys beat on some balls at Topgolf.
The Cowboys are what Jalen Rose calls “habitual line-steppers.” A year ago, the club got busted by the league for offseason practice violations. Yep. They got popped again yesterday for the same reason. The team has been stripped of an OTA next year, and head coach Mike McCarthy is now a hundred grand lighter. Seems some offseason practices have been “too physical” under the league’s CBA.
Here’s the difference between the Ravens and the Cardinals. Here’s the difference between John Harbaugh and Kliff Kingsbury. Here’s the difference between Lamar Jackson and Kyler Murray. Both teams have quarterbacks who want big, new long-term deals. Everybody in Baltimore is being professional about this. As for Arizona?…
Jadeveon Clowney says a big reason why he decided to stay in Cleveland was to be re-united with his old Texans homeboy, Deshaun Watson. Hmm. If those guys are going to play together, it won’t be until 2023 at the earliest. I’m telling you, Watson is not going to see the field this season.
Tyreek Hill taking shots at Mahomes? C’mon, man…
