You know what I really wanted to lead today's SN column with? Kris Allen topping Danny Gokey for the Idol finalist spot to meet juggernaut Adam Lambert.
I wanted to talk about how that -- combined with David Cook's win last year over David Archuleta -- continues to affirm that America does indeed know what it's talking about, when left to the decision-making.
I wanted to talk about how perhaps there is a decent analogue to my decade-old college football "Fan Poll" concept that would let fans be part of the BCS selection process.
I should have led with Idol. How can you go wrong with Idol?
Because Caps-Pens Game 7 was a dud (unless you're a Penguins fan). Zero drama, except maybe for the fleeting moment it was 0-0.
The Nuggets-Mavs series was a dud, too. For all the yapping from Game 3 into Game 4, the series was over in 5, and it wasn't really ever close.
All you can hope for is that the Rockets and Magic make it interesting by winning at home tonight and pushing their own series to 7 games.
Did I mention yesterday that Tim Floyd is screwed? How about so so so screwed?
I give props to Lane Kiffin in the column today. Yes, really.
Wow, there was a lot of offense in MLB yesterday. And yet my fantasy team? Nada.
Complete column here. More later.
