I'm still guest-blogging over at Deadspin this weekend, but I seriously missed my usual Saturday "(Very)" edition of the Quickie-style post in the morning. So I'm going to fling through it here:
Gilbert Arenas Watch: This only leads the blog this morning because Gilbert is my favorite athlete in sports -- and he announced he's opting out of his Wizards contract after the '08 season. I am quite upset.
NBA Finals: No one watched Game 1 and even fewer will watch Game 2, particularly between the hours of 9 p.m. and 10 p.m. ET.
Clemens Debut: Not bad...particularly that 6th inning that took him over 100 pitches. I love the career-K see-saw between him and Randy Johnson.
Dan Haren: Forget Clemens. The AL pitcher who has become must-see is the A's Haren, who blanked the Giants yesterday and lowered his MLB-best ERA from 1.70 to 1.58. All-Star starter?
Horse Racing: Rags to Riches bumps "Warriors over Mavs" as my Best Prediction of the Year.
Human Racing: Chad Johnson beat the horse! Chad Johnson beat the horse!
Boxing: Cotto over Judah.
MMA: Tommy Morrison? Worst MMA winner ever.
Golf: Michelle Wie is pretty terrible right now. She had her worst score as a pro yesterday.
Tennis: If you watch one match this year, make it Federer vs. Nadal in the French Open men's final. (OK, just monitor it and see if it goes to a 5th set. Then watch THAT.)
Track: Florida State's Walter Dix is going to be America's biggest superstar at the '08 Olympics.
Hot Blogger Bracket: Success! Thanks to everyone for your support in the first round, where we eked it out against a fiesty Five Tool Tool.
More later, if I can yank myself away from my Deadspin overlords...
Otherwise, see you tomorrow morning when I am back to business here.
