LA Lakers defeat San Antonio Spurs 101-71. I was wrong. I really thought the Spurs would be well rested and completely shut down the Lakers. In fact the opposite happened. After feeling each other during most the first half, the Lakers went on a 9-0 run to take a nine point lead in the half. In the second half, the Lakers ran circles around the Spurs swarming like locusts around Tony Parker and Tim Duncan effectively shutting them down. And Manu Ginobli was forced to go to his right all night long. It was a very convincing win for the Lakers, but they have to remember the Spurs are a completely different team at home. Game three will be in San Antonio Sunday night.

St. Louis Cardinals leading LA Dodgers 2-1, 1 out, 3-2 count on Matt Kemp in the ninth. It's 11:30 pm and I'm ready to fall asleep. So screw it. If the game hasn't been completed yet, it will be completed today. I think. I don't know. I'm getting some snooze now. It figures once I closed my lappy that the game would resume. With the Dodgers trailing 2-1 with runners on first and third with two outs in the bottom of the ninth, why the fuck is Andruw Jones pinch hitting? This is a guy who's hitting worse than my grandmother and has a torn ligament in his knee. So of course he strikes out. Fuck Andruw Jones. Fuck Joe Torre. Fuck the Dodgers. I'm going to sleep. Dodgers lose 2-1.
