Big Baby, the blues 3rd goal was unbelievably cheap-nobody in front off the keeper and straight under his pads!! gonna be good for one more period before lights out.

STANTON STRIKING OUT AIN"T NEWS!!!! last season in 279 at-bats the guy struck out 67 times. not quite this years 147 and 60Ks, but certainly an indicator of the guys penchant for fanning. i am interested to see how close ehe comes to dave kinsman's numbers.

Big Baby, didn't have to stay up very late for the OT last night. as the announcers stated, they either go for two minutes or two periods.

WHO IN THEIR RIGHT MIND WOULD.... proclaim the warriors as the greatest team in NBA history? don't care if they come back tonight and tuesday night, they couldn't win a series against the bird celtics, the magic lakers, wilt's 67 warriors, the 69-70 knicks and others in between. a bunch of undersized jump shooters who would get mauled inside by any of the aforementioned teams. winning 73 games is a great achievement, but it wouldn't have happened against the balanced league of the era of those teams. behind by almost 40 at the end of three periods is pathetic, and there is no reason to believe then same won't occur next time they meet. think curry or thompson would score against michael cooper or dennis johnson? think they'd have a chance against the positions of the late 80s? even if they mange to come back in this series, the cavaliers will maul them. hey, i've been a warrior fan for forty years, but i wouldn't foam at the mouth over this bunch when facing the glory teams of the NBA's history. JUMP SHOOTERS WITH NO PRESENCE UNDERNEATH!!!

Big Baby, tim howard swan song? he was demoted at everton before coming back to the western hemisphere. watched england get lucky twice vs. always pesky turkey. agreed that colombia and costa rica are not easy in the group stage. paraguay is not what it was with that incredible goalkeeper-chilavert or something like that who took the penalties and free kicks. colombia methinks is the only squad in the group stage that doesn't wear red, white and blue kits.

Big Baby, just watched snippets of "the miracle on ice" to get psyched for the match tonight. as mentioned previously, i am not a crosby hater or a penguins hater, but am rooting for TB in a big way. hope we get our desired result!!!

OC Dolphin, i imagine you mean KAJ's *ss. the "big fella" has mellowed in his older age, and methinks he really deserves a chance to coach in the bigs. he, in his youth, was gonna pick a fight anywhere, anytime with those who had to handgun, bite, claw, punch... to keep him from scoring, at which most were unsuccessful. wilt's twilight and walton's dawning are good measures of just how great KAJ was. the battles between KAJ and wilt and KAJ were tremendous; also throw in dave cowerns and robert parrish. forget the argument about who was the best; career wise it his hard to imagine anyone with KAJ,s credentials from high school right through to the ending of his NBA career. having magic johnson join him in the 80s certainly helped his resume- but to me, given a choice ofd 10 forwards and 10 guards to go along with 10 centers (the symmetry of 2-1-2>20-10-20 makes it easy to pick anall-time team. centers? wilt, russell,KAJ, walton, hakeem, moses,nate thurmond, shaq, mikan and walt bellamy (off the top of my head) would be a solid contingent to play the post. now picking 20 yards and 20 forwards gets a little tricky!!!

AND PLEASE REMEMBER:... that KAJ was a surly guy who got into fights with kunnert, and with kent benson- no talents who sought to irritate him to make up for their lack of talent. throw in the fight at hamilton high (robertson at cattaragus, just north of the santa monica freeway) where KAJ got into it with warren (armstrong) jabali of the ABA, a guy much smaller than him. it didn't take much to say KAJ off and understanding how the pestering got to him and provoked him into scuffles and maybe, just maybe, you can let up on KW just a little, or rightfully a whole lot.

DON'T BLAME KERMIT WASHINGTON: he went downcourt to break up the fight between kevin kunnert- who had been irritating KAJ all game, and he turns around to see a 6"7' mountain of a man in rudy tomjanovich flying his way. why didn't tomkanovich stay at his end of the court and leave the three man tussle to the refs? what would you do if you saw a guy the size of tomjanovich running straight at you? it was an eerie friday night listening to chickie baby describe the scene, and if i remember correctly the sound of that punch made it over the airwaves. kermit washington was an excellent college player, by no means an enforcer in the NBA, and a gentleman who became engaged in one the NBA"s more ugly moments when an opposing player got into the kunnert/KAJ/KW situation. meanwhile, rudy t went on to catch two champs of the NBA-having akeem doesn't hurt that cause

Big Baby, granted that england scored on an offside goal it appears to these eyes that they have a real chance at excellence for euro16. they are a little smallish in the back, but i'd rather see their defenders w/o john terry. they have two real scoring threats in kane a nd jamie vardy, with raheem sterling and cahill also capable of scoring. turkey always is a tough go, and scheduling countries who put up a fight whenever /whomever they play. goof articleom NHL stanley cup defenders, who are solid but none who can approach the status of boston's #4. geez, they can't even approach bjorne salming!!! my beloved bottom feeding leaves!!!

Big Baby, gonna watch turkey and england at noon. the USA/puerto rico match doesn't seem to be attractive; how does 10-0 sound? or maybe even worse! and now the USA has a 17 year-old on the pitch (if he gets anytime). understand he did some scoring in the bundesliga, but the stakes are way different in international competitions. clint dempsey will gat half of the goals for the red,white and blue in what may be his last go on the USMNT. they throw the term "he's a warrior" around like confetti, but clint dempsey is one player who really deserves the monicker. what happened with gio dossantos?if el try can be good w/o him, then mexico is ready to hunt bear in the copa. his goal in the 4-2 gold cup triumph remains in my top two, along with DENNIS BERGKAMP!! DENNIS BERGKAMP!! in the 98 WC against your faves the albiceleste. enjoy a sports filled pleasant sunday, my good friend.

Big Baby, turned on the TV last night to find the sharks down 4-0; their 3 goals were downright meaningless. SJ pulled what was the best net minding in the playoffs so far-didn't see the 4 goals but caught some of them in the last period. tonight another gargantuan game in pittsburgh!!

Big Baby, the sharks are playing pretty well, and a blues loss ion game 4 will seal their fate. tomorrow night's gamer starts early so i probably won't get to much, if any, of that game 4.

Big Baby, well, this time it worked!! listened to the blues announcer call the shark goal. off to sleep listening to the NBA, with SJ starting period 2 with almost 1:50 left on the late power play. will find out in the morning what the outcome was.
