Day in Sports: May 26th

The main event of today was Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Finals between the Bulls and Heat. The game really changed in favor of the Heat around 2:30 left in the 3rd quarter off of a flagrant foul against Carlos Boozer. The Heat really just outplayed the Bulls from that point on and beat my hometown Bulls by 3. 83-80 Miami, winning then the series 4-1.

This sets up a Finals matchup against Dallas with took the West.

Other Briefs:

  • Red Sox won huge 14-1
  • White Sox finally pull it together a pull off a 3-1 win
  • A fan fell to his death at the Rockies game. 
  • The heavily favored Kim Clijsters got upset in the 2nd round of the French Open
  • Nadal won in straight sets at the French 
  • Doug Weight retired after 19 NHL seasons, he joined the Islanders coaching staff and front office
NHL News

New Jets? - The Atlanta Thrashers are 95% certain to move to Winnipeg, Manitoba. The NHL left Winnipeg 15 seasons ago and fled to hot climate of Phoenix. Personally I am not a fan of warm weather teams, but my plan for the NHL will be discussed in a later post. 

ECF Game 7: After a huge performance in Game 6 the Bolts pushed it to the pivotal Game 7 against the Bruins. Tomorrow we will find out the matchup for the Stanley Cup Final. Either way I hope the winner of this Game 7 wins the cup.

  9. @hazel - my understanding of the situation is, Atlanta really didnt care if the team left, where as the city of glendale is trying actively to keep the team

  10. The Bulls choking made me sad, but not as much as Doug Weight retiring.

  16. I hope the Mavericks will win the Championship, Dirk deserves his first ring and James is young enough to win even more than just one Championship.

  17. The Mavs better win the finals. I woud sink into to major depression if the Lebron won a ring.

  20. Man, I'm a huge fan of the Wings, and I know this is old news, but I can't believe they effin' choked. It pissed me off so much.

    That sucks to hear about that fan that fell to his death during a game. Especially if it was a game he didn't even really like, he was just there with his friend or something.
