bring on pavel bure!

i can't imagine how serious hockey fans can survive watching a close game 7.  in baseball, basketball, and football, big games don't get super intense and nerve wracking till the last few innings/minutes/possessions.  but in hockey it's the WHOLE game.  and it takes like 4 seconds for something to happen out of nowhere.  i was in a constant state of anxiousness watching that game, and i don't even care very much. 

moving forward, can anybody name any current vancouver canucks?  vote in the poll at the top right.  i do know the other guy in the picture below is joe thornton though.

and when did vancouver decide to start wearing hartford whalers uniforms?

oh yeah, one more thing, isn't it pretty crazy for an entire NHL game to be played with ZERO penalties?

red sox playoff tickets go on sale saturday at 10 am

ok, not really.  but they might as well.  when you score 14 runs everyday you're going to win a lot of games.  two weeks ago boston was tied for last in the AL east, 5 games back of tampa.  now the sox are tied for 1st, and already have a game and a half lead on the rays for the wild card.  i'm pretty sure tampa is done, they're starting to remember that they gave away all their good players last off season.  and while we're on the subject, that crawford guy just raised his average 32 points in 2 days. 

- adrian gonzalez leads the majors with 70 hits and 44 RBI
- beckett leads the AL with a 1.69 ERA
- lester's 7 wins are the most in baseball, and his ALL TIME BEST career win percentage is up to .7234

i think oprah has mind control powers

So oprah has done her last show.  It seems to be pretty big news. Sportscenter even did a top 10 "finales" list yesterday in it's honor.  I have never understood why everybody loves her so much.  I watched the show once I think, when a girl I was dating told me the "favorite things" episode was the best one all year.  I thought it was ridiculous, just a crap load of products that were given to the show for free advertising.  It seemed pretty obvious that oprah didn't really even know anything about a lot of the stuff.  My overall impression of her is that she cares a lot more about making people love her and think she's awesome, rather than actually doing any good.  But clearly it's worked; so well played oprah.

also click here and watch this link of the SNL parody:

And yeah, there are some capital letters in this blog.  But that's because I typed it on my phone and it does it automatically.

i've written something on this blog at least once a day everyday since i started it.  but now all of a sudden yesterday out of nowhere winter ended and summer began.  just like that.  i'm not sure if i'm going to be able to keep up the pace with warm weather.  there are things to do besides sit at home and watch espn2 all afternoon.  yesterday i played softball.  today i played tennis.  yeah, i know this is lame, but for now it will have to suffice.  i'm going back outside.

timmy thomas vs dirk nowitzki

who had the better highlight last night?

this jumper by dirk was completely ridiculous.  he was falling backwards and sideways and had to throw it off the rafters in order to to get it over serge ibaka's hands.  with 5 minutes to go OKC was up 99-84.  then dallas closed out the game on a 28-6 run.  it's hard to win playoff games when you only score 6 points in the final 10 minutes.  for the first time i'm starting to believe dallas might have a chance against miami.  dirk is unreal right now.

sportscenter said this play by thomas was the "save of the year" in the NHL.  i don't think i have ever seen a goalie stop the puck with the end of his stick at that angle before.  did i write something recently about the importance of goalies in the NHL playoffs? 

anyway, vote on the right for which play was more absurd.

CVS is sneaky

i've hardly ever bought any over the counter drugs, i don't really get sick.   but i'm getting old, and i pulled something in my back playing softball last week.  taking ibuprofen is supposed to help, so i went to CVS to buy some.  i picked up a box and starting walking to the register, but then i saw a different one on another shelf:

the orange one is supposed to be like motrin, and the blue one is supposed to be like advil.  but they have all the same ingredients except for a dye that makes them different colors.  they are the same thing.  but one costs a buck more than the other.  sneaky CVS, sneaky.

is ray lewis going to use the lockout as an excuse to go on a killing spree?

copied from

Lewis Do this research if we don't have a season -- watch how much evil, which we call crime, watch how much crime picks up, if you take away our game. -- Ray Lewis

hines ward is dancing with the stars.  ochocinco is riding bulls.  that guy on the vikings is trying to be a boxer.  ray lewis may stab some people.  here's another quote i took from the espn article about his interview with sal palantonio:

When asked why he thought crime would increase if the NFL doesn't play games this year, Lewis said: "There's nothing else to do Sal."

somehow the sports media seems to have forgotton about that double homicide in atlanta in 2000.
not me.  i think there's a decent chance he killed people.  and now he's bored and got nothing else to do. 

ok, so there is some sarcasm here.  but seriously, shouldn't it not be ok for him to talk about crime?!
