Sunday 06/17 A.M. (Very) Quickie:
Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day! Nothing like that Father's Day 5:30 a.m. "wake-up call"...

MLB: Oh, now THIS is a rare one... the combined Stud AND Dud. And it goes to: Carlos Zambrano, who pitched a two-hitter (stud), but lost the game (dud), 1-0, that featured a brawl-er-oo.

Speaking of 1-0, it sounds like the Red Sox' 1-0 win over Bonds and the Giants at Fenway was a great one, with Matsuzaka pitching his best game as a MLB'er and Manny eclipsing Barry.

US Open: Here comes Tiger...

NBA: Kobe reiterates that he wants to be traded. I still contend that the Lakers can be better without him. CAN be better. But, in the process, will they gut the team that Kobe will be joining, thus negating the value of acquiring him? Of course, if Kobe is in the East, he could win the conference with him and a bunch of bozos. Just look at LeBron.

Duke LAX DA Mike Nifong disbarred: Wow, the Karmic Payback of the Decade.

There probably was a ton I missed this morning, of course. Feel free to contribute to the cause in the Comments.

Again, hope all the dads out there have an awesome Father's Day. I'm getting ready to open the gift from my son right now...

(Dad's-Day UPDATE: A homemade shirt with his finger-painting and hand-prints! There is nothing like the "effort gift," especially from a 1-year-old.)

Oh, and there are only a few hours left in Round 3 of the Hot Blogger Bracket. Have you voted (for me) yet? Click here for the ballot.

They said it was the first time in I beleive 43 years that there were 1-0 games at Wrigley and Fenway on the same day.

kobe: so will the simmons' trade scenarios come into play... in all likelihood, the bulls might have enough pieces for a "fair" trade.

Now that the Finals are over, Mr. Shanoff will be discussing the NBA Draft. Here is a nugget of wisdom from the 1998 Draft. You can't make this stuff up.

Winners and losers at the '98 draft

by Dan Shanoff

Posted: Thu June 25, 1998

Winners: The Bucks

After trading away No. 4 draft-pick Stephon Marbury last year, the Bucks get it right in '98 by stealing the marketable and talented Robert Traylor from the Mavs for an overhyped foreign prospect.

Alexander....

Wow. That made my day. You, my friend, are a genious. I applaud you and the effort you put forth. And on this Fathers' day, I would like to thank your father for bringing you into this world so that you could bring this comment into my world. If you could keep those coming, I'm not sure what I'd do. Those tidbits might be the best thing since heroin.

Father's Day was a blast for me. TWELVE (count 'em - 12!) gourmet meat pies gift-wrapped!
That may not *seem* like a big deal to anyone, but to an Australian living in Japan, to get TWELVE (have I said that already?) meat pies from my 2 month-old son...
Well, 'twas bliss.
