Pistons in a funk-
I just can’t get over the fact that the Pistons are down 3-1 to the Miami Heat. It’s shocking, and appalling. Shaq is at 100%, Wade is shooting a sizzling 70% for the series. Yet, the Pistons, who had one of the best seasons in recent memory, cannot keep up. I blame Rip Hamilton, who is shooting a paltry 37% from the field. Granted, its easy to latch onto any of the Pistons starters as the problem, but I feel like one of the main keys to the Pistons success is the fact that Rip Hamilton runs around like a lunatic out there, and ends up tiring whoever is guarding him.
NHL Playoffs -
The 8th-seeded Edmonton Oilers are awaiting an upcoming game 7 winner between Buffalo and Carolina. Canada has a great chance to win the cup perhaps. I’m rooting for Edmonton vs. Buffalo, mainly because Michael Peca is now on the Oilers. The good thing about the Stanley Cup Finals is that I believe NBC will be showing some games, so I can actually watch it!
Hiding in the bushes-
Check out this funny article, involving one of the Indians relievers. http://www.cleveland.com/weblogs/pdsports/index.ssf?/mtlogs/cleve_pdsports/archives/2006_05.html
Apparently, it was like 4AM, and RP Scott Sauerbeck let a drunken female drive his car. The cops noticed she was driving poorly, and they followed the car until it pulled into a random driveway. Sauerbeck and his lady-friend then promptly hid in the bushes between some houses in the hopes that the police wouldn’t find them. 45 minutes later, the police found them. I wish I knew what Sauerbeck said when they found him. He may have been drunk enough to think he was playing hide and go seek. Granted, when one is drunk, playing hide and go seek with the cops is probably not the best idea.
