- Yes, the Lakers won last night, but LaLaLand shouldn’t get too happy. Only two guys (Bryant and Vujacic) with over 10 points, and there’s still an APB out for the missing Lamar Odom. They got the win, which they absolutely needed, but don’t expect the Celtics to make it so easy in Game 4.
- Anyone who followed the Triple Crown this year already knew that Rick Dutrow, trainer of the Big Bomb, Big Brown, is a jerk. After all, this is the guy who called his colt’s presumed victory in the Belmont a “foregone conclusion”, showed up on race day with a hat he was paid by The Donald to wear, and voiced his amazement when the Hooter Girls weren’t allowed to parade with his horse. So after Big Brown took his well-earned place alongside The Edsel and “Hello Larry”, who does Dutrow blame? That’s right – the jockey.
“I don’t want to hurt anyone, especially Kent,” Dutrow told The Associated Press on Tuesday morning in his barn at Aqueduct. “But I still don’t understand what happened. I don’t see the horse with a problem, so I have to direct my attention toward the ride. That’s all I can come up with.”
What a tool …
- While I think someone needs to stuff a sock in the mouth of disgraced NBA ref Tim Donaghy, the league has to at least investigate his claims that several key playoff games were thrown by refs – presumably on league instructions – in the last few years. It doesn’t matter if he has no credibility whatsoever; you can’t just say “pshaw” and move on. Full disclosure, David Stern – only way you’ll save the league’s reputation.
Anyway, as the picture shows, we’re waiting for thunderstorm to start to do its thing. There’s already some impressive lightning bolts flying around – it’s just nice to see real weather for a change!
