Well, what do you know.Â I have to take back everything I said last week about LeBron not having the drive/obsession/chutzpah it takes to lead his teamÂ through the Eastern Conference Finals.Â Â 25 points, 7 rebounds, and 11 assists signal that aÂ true captainÂ isÂ waking up on the court, (although it should be noted that King James was scoreless inÂ the usual Cavs’Â 3rd quarter collapse), and inspiring his team to make it to the championship.
That being said, I want the oldÂ ClevelandÂ back and I want Rasheed Wallace to keep his temper under control.Â A technical for throwing your headband?Â You know better Rasheed,Â especially when the team has a five and half minute (!!!) stretch in the fourth quarter without scoring!Â So you’re blowing a two-game lead!Â Be a professional and keep yourself together!
I am happy that the Cavs have given my friend Jeremy his sanity back, (although watching the game with him on Sunday was down right scary – thatÂ furniture did not stand a chance),Â but as a Pistons fan I cannot watch this series unravel the way it has the past two games without feeling some amount of guilt for last week’s open letter to LeBron.
Â The Pirates are in second place in the NL Central!Â The Pirates are in second place!!!Â Â 4 wins in 5 games with last night’s 4-1 win over the Padres! Sure they’re still 5 games below .500, but they’re in second place!Â (Yes these are the wrong Pirates, but in a game that featured Tom GorzelannyÂ verses David Wells on the mound and Jason Bay as your home run hitter, you look elsewhere for hotties.)
The AmericanÂ men stink!Â Stinking up the French Open worse than last month’s brie!Â Worse thanÂ Morbier (which really smells!)Â , Mimolette (which gets mites!),Â and Livarot (ok, that one is actually pretty tasty),Â all grilled together on a moldy baguette of unpasteurized stench!
TheÂ American menÂ wentÂ 0-8 on Tuesday, the worst show for US in 30 years. You can mope all you want Roddick, but you still stink.Â Â (And while we’re at it, can you talk to the people at LacosteÂ about re-sizing the alligator back to its originalÂ form for tennis? This isn’t hip-hopÂ with with “Big Pony”Â you know.)Â Fin.
No real Steelers news this week,Â other than Ben Roethlisberger talking that about how he’s not going to talk about his contract extensionÂ until there is something to talk about, so I spent the past few days mulling over this Danbury Mint ad that came in the mail.
Pittsburgh Steelers fans have high expectations, and rightfully so.Â With an impressive collection of five Super Bowl championships and 17 division titles,Â the Steelers are one of the NFL’s most storied teams.
Now, you can show your pride for the Pittsburgh Steelers with unrivaled enthusiasm.Â Presenting… The Pittsburgh Steelers Heart Bracelet, a fashionable platinum – plated bracelet featuring the legendary Steelers logo.
This exquisite bracelet would make a spirited addition to your gameday attire or a fashionable addition to any other outfit.
Any other outfit?Â Ladies, if you ever see me wearing something like this with any other outfit in a non-Super Bowl winning year, please promise me you’ll sit me down for a marathon of “Project Runway”, “ANTM”, and some oldÂ video tapes of CNN’s Elsa Klensch’s “Style”.Â
And finally,Â get your credit cards out and the number of the bail bondsman ready;Â GordonShumway, Holly, andÂ myself are converging in Hollywood tonight for a first ever meeting of any of the Ladies!Â We’ll miss Clare, Andie, SA, Texy, and Wanda – all of whom have been moved to seperate bunkers in case a hit goes out on us tonight – but I think we can all agree this is huge step for Ladiesdotdotdot.com!Â
