Miracle at Maples


The things I saw when I wasn't cursing at my pc and the wonderful people at Blogger...

The Washington Huskies flight into Seattle will be a little bit lighter today, as freshman guard Justin Dentmon will be walking home. With Washington leading by 3 points, Dentmon fouled Stanford guard Chris Hernandez on his desperation 3 pt attempt with 0.2 seconds remaining. Hernandez stepped up to the line and hit all three free throws to force overtime. With all the momentum favoring the Cardinal, they cruised through overtime and won 76-67. Dentmon can be thankful that his coach was the usually calm Lorenzo Romar and not someone like Bruce Pearl or Bobby Knight, who likely would have dismissed him from the team, kicked him out of school, and had his parents incarcerated...

By the way, the Stanford crowd loses major points for rushing the court. It's a home game in the middle of the Pac-10 season. I don't care if it was a miracle to get into OT. Act like your team has won a game before, kids...

Men In Tights: This time it was King James wearing pantyhouse on the hardwood. He must get a kick out of Leggs, because he put the team on his back and carried them to a victory over Phoenix. It didn't hurt that the Suns are allergic to playing defense. Cav fans were not only treated to a 4o+ point performance by Lebron, but since the Cavs scored more than 100 points, everyone in attendance got a free Taco Bell chalupa! With a promotion like that, suddenly those $85 seats don't seem like such a bad deal...

From what I could tell, Kobe wasn't wearing the tights today. Either that, or he's switched to the "nude" variety to keep it sexy...

The San Diego Padres continued to assemble their old-timers team by signing Mike Piazza to a one year, $2 million contract. Ladies and gentlemen, Mike Piazza, Vinny Castilla, Andy Ashby, Eric Young....THESE are your San Diego Padres!!

Also in San Diego- Tiger Woods did what he does and won a golf tournament. I did what I do and watched anything other than a golf tournament...
