May Day! May Day!
Steph. Curry. I’ll let you write your own superlative. Mine would be hopelessly inadequate. I’ve never seen anything quite like that. Neither have you.
Fitty? In a Game Seven?
Next up, Dubs and Lakers in the Western Conference semis. I’m in.
File this under “incorrigible.” Memphis Grizzlies loose cannon Dillon Brooks says he doesn’t regret calling LeBron “old” after Memphis’ Game Two win over the Lakers. Apparently, you can’t teach that guy anything. Brooks calls himself a “competitor.” I call him an idiot.
It’s about to get real. The NFL is targeting May 11 as the day it will release its 2023 season schedule. After that, we’ll be rolling downhill toward September at break-neck speed! Remember the name Howard Katz. He’s the NFL’s scheduling guru. I can’t imagine a more complex task with more moving parts and fewer happy customers—meaning both teams and fans. Everybody’s always bitchin’. If you see Howard, buy him a beer.
The Atlanta Falcons aren’t just a good fit for Bijan Robinson. That is the perfect team for him. Birds’ Head Coach Arthur Smith will know precisely how to utilize Bijan’s unique talents.
Prayers and condolences to Bucs’ linebacker Shaquil Barrett and his family following Sunday’s accidental swimming pool drowning of their two-year-old daughter Arrayah in Tampa. Life brings no greater sorrow. Love and comfort.
The NHL’S Boston Bruins just finished up the most successful regular season in league history. Poof. It’s Cancun Time. Boston lost a first-round Game Seven to the Florida Panthers, after the Bruins had been up 3-1 in the series.
So, yes, the Bruins’ season was ultimately a failure. This is professional sports, not a CYO Sunday Church League. No snow cones.
Do YOU understand that, Giannis?
Relieved that the ‘Stros at least avoided a sweep with Sunday night’s 4-3 win over the Phillies. Now it’s on to a three-game set with the Giants.
The Phils say they expect UberStar Bryce Harper to return to the lineup as a DH Tuesday night against the Dodgers. That would be just 160 days after he underwent Tommy John surgery. That’s not human.
Here’s wishing Brittney Griner a smooth, normal and successful season with the WNBA’s Phoenix Mercury. It was good to see her back on the court at training camp Sunday.
It’ll be Arlington vs. D.C. in next weekend’s XFL Championship Game at the Alamo Dome. D.C. is 10-1. Arlington is 5-6 after Saturday’s stunning seminal upset of the Houston Roughnecks. The D.C, Defenders are very sharp, especially defensively.
