Sorry If I Won't Drink The ESPN Kool-Aid

I know bloggers have a reputation for always being negative, but I have to ask the question anyway- how are people possibly calling yesterday's Cavs v Celtics game one of the greatest game 7s of all time, including references to the Bird/'Nique game of 1988? Sure, Lebron and Pierce had a nice duel in the 4th quarter that kept things interesting. But from my perspective, it seemed like one team was in control the entire game, with the trailing team making one last desperate rally at the end. In other words, it was like just about every other NBA game you'll watch. If that Celtics game was great, then you've got to put Game 6 of the Jazz/Lakers series in the time capsule too, as Utah had a chance to tie at the end.

It looks like The Oracle called it in the live blog/chat yesterday. This game was similar to this year's Super Bowl. Pretty boring first half, but as long as there was a compelling finish, it would be called one of the greatest of all time. Granted the stakes weren't quite the same, but the reaction is similar.

Speaking of the live blog, we'll give it another shot tonight. Feel free to stop on by and leave a "Woooooooo" or two.
