Warriors enjoy home cookin', rout Jazz: Here's what I'm stuck on -- why has the NBA not made the Warriors (arguably the most telegenic team left in the playoffs) their showcase TV team? Like: Where's the ABC Sunday afternoon slot seen across the country? Why hide this team behind late start-times? This is the story of the year in the NBA -- snatching the game back from the "star system" (though Baron Davis has catapulted himself into stardom) and giving hope to all of the non-contenders out there that a little imagination can go a long way.
Ricky Williams tests positive for pot: You can only shake your head at this point. So close to reinstatement, he basically smokes it away. I'm perfectly willing to call him an addict (and suggest he receive treatment as such), but it's pretty pathetic to see him devolve (again).
Tiger smacks down Rowr-y: "If I remember the quote correctly, he said he likes the new Tiger. I figure I've won nine of 12, and I've won three times this year — the same amount he's won in his career. So, I like the new Tiger as well." Tiger's trash-talk would have an eensy bit more oomph if he wasn't barely making the cut at Sawgrass.
MLB Stud: Jake Peavy, the best pitcher in the NL. He had 10 Ks, which is badass enough until you find out it's his fourth straight game with at least 10 Ks. Now THAT is badass.
MLB Dud: Roy Halladay out six weeks with appendicitis.
All prepped for Mother's Day yet? (Totally unrelated... new Varsity Dad post up, for those following that blog. Seriously: At what point does the inertia of a "soft launch" simply morph into "launch?")
