Mrs. Quickie-Quickish and I are hosting 10 pre-K kids for my son Gabe's 5th birthday, which is Monday. (More on that milestone on Monday.) So this will be brief:
*Grizzlies taking Thunder to Game 7: At home, OKC should be a favorite. But Memphis already won there once, and strategically, the Thunder have to find a solution for the Grizzlies' deployment of OJ Mayo as a way to open up the middle for Zach Randolph.
*Cripes, what the hell happened to Derek Boogaard? Very sad and shocking news.
*I think that Justin Verlander taking a no-hitter into the 6th inning after pitching a no-hitter the last time out is just about as much as we could ask from him.
*Happy graduation to Troy Polamalu.
Back to party prep. Very slow day in sports, but Quickish has more than a few great recommendations for you, updating all day long (and in the capable hands of editor Michael Katz). Pop by!
