sorry it's been awhile. i was out of town this weekend with HK hanging out with hammer. anyways, there's a few things worth mentioning.
1) steve nash is probably going to win the MVP. again, how these kinds of things happen, i just don't know. here's the dirty secret. steve nash is not any better than he was with the mavericks. i love him to death, and he's probably a top 2 point guard in the league, but when you compare what he did to what kobe, lebron, and even dirk did this year, he really shouldn't be in this conversation. last year, i chalked it up to a turnaround job. this year, i'm at a loss. so i'll just resort to my default, racism. sports writers love whitey!
2) holy cow! john daly has a really bad gambling problem. sometimes, i think that it's actually a good thing that i don't have a lot of money, cuz there's a greater than zero chance that i'd end up blowing it in vegas. the weird thing about the daly story is that he suffered a lot of his losses at the slot machines. did i mention that he said he's racked up over 50 million dollars in losses? i mean losing a ton of cash on black jack, i can at least kinda understand...but once my twenty runs out on the nickel machine, i'm out.
3) that last sentence isn't true. i've got serious gambling problems.
4) those of you who are jonesing for your duke lacrosse fix will be relieved to know that a duke committee has recommended that the team be reinstated next year, after this year's cancellation of the season. as usual, college administrators have their heads up their ass. i've got no problem with resuming the program, but the committee calls for close monitoring of the program due to a history of problems related to alcohol....if that's the case, then every single NCAA division I team, male and female needs to be closely monitored.
i thought i had more, but apparently i got nothing. sorry.
