Epic Sports Day

Every once in awhile, you get a pretty good overall sports day. Between yesterday's finish at the US Open and game 5 between the Spurs and Pistons, that was some good stuff. I'm not even that into golf, but seeing it come down to a seemingly nice Kiwi of Maori descent and man of many races Tiger Woods was great. Good dramatic stuff.

And as for the NBA finals, finally a good game. In the end, Detroit just doesn't have a go-to player like Horry when they need the big shot. That, and Rasheed Wallace (sorry to continue to pick on him) missed becoming the biggest NBA finals goat in league history by .01 seconds. If they had seen the non-existent timeout he was trying to call, it would've made Chris Webber look like nothing.

I'll be pulling for Detroit in game 6 just to see a 7 game series.

Rasheed went double goat by not guarding Horry up 2 in OT with 10 seconds left.

Please, keep picking on him.

And I can't take staying up until 12:30 watching these things, just end it already.

Ah yes the nonexistent time out that even the announcers seemed to have forgot.

I was thinking Duncan was up for goat after all the missed free throws and the missed last second tip-in as well as several bungled shots, passes, etc. My housemate said he looked like the proverbial deer caught in the headlights.

Anti-kudos to Hamilton for the elbow to the face of Parker before the last(failed) attempt. He should be handing out masks.

c'mon now, Bowen handed out his fair share of cheap shots throughout the game.

And the announcers beat that "time out" to death - they also noted that time had expired before 'Sheed's hands went together.
