In sports action NOT having to do with the Olympics and NOT having to do with the Cubs (you ask "why would we care then?" and you might be right), the Triple Crown is still not won, as Big Brown slipped on a banana peel. He was shot soon afterwards.
In sports action NOT having to do with the Olympics, NOT having to do with the Cubs, and NOT having to do with horses, basketball is back with a real
NBA Championship Finals Series thing. But it sickens me
. Where is the bitter feud? The rivalry? The East Coast-West Coast barnstorming and barn-burning? Analysts talked it up the whole playoff run, and now it's here, but it's not. It's mewing like two tiny kittens in the alley, not even CLOSE to having enough teeth to rip each others' throats out. Sports were meant to be played a certain way, a kittens-tearing-each-other-apart-for-your-amusement sort of way. For shame, Kobe and Kevin, for shame.
