Weekend Re Cap


The San Antonio Spurs and the Oklahoma City Thunder got the conference finals started Sunday night. The Spurs looked rusty in the early going. But, if you think about how the game was played...the young and talented Thunder team got off to a quick start and led by 9 points going into the 4th quarter. But like any new car, it runs good for the first thousand miles or so then something happens and it doesnt run right and you have to put it in the shop. Well, the Spurs are like an old school car. Give it some time to warm up and get going and it will run like brand new. Thats exactly what happend; the Spurs rallied from 9 down in the 4th quarter to win game 1 101-98. That momentum carried over to game 2 where they won 120-111. I thought they were supposed to be old? O_o

The Boston Celtics and Miami Heat got the Eastern Conference Finals underway Monday night. The Celtics looked old and tired, while the Heat were still red hot. Even though people insist that the 5 technical fouls the Celtics got, lost them that game. I think other wise. The game was tied at halftime, and they scored 35 points in the 2nd quarter. The Heat were just better all around in the 2nd half, as they went on the smash the Celtics 93-79 in game 1. LeBron and D.Wade were still in sync, as they went on the score a combined 54 points. Game 2 is tonight in Miami at 8:30 on ESPN.


Former Chicago White Sox and Detroit Tiger Magglio Ordonez has decided to hang up the spikes.
The6 time All Star played 92 games last season with a surgically repaired right ankle, hitting a career low .255 with five homers and 32 RBIs. I will forever remember Mags for his game winning homerun against the Oakland A's in the ALCS to send the Tigers to the World Series for the first time since '84.

Angels pitcher Jered Weaver is headed to the 15 day disabled list with an lower back injury. Weaver threw 12 pitches and faced 4 batters Monday night against the Yankees before pulling up awkwardly after a pitch. He was diagnosed with lower-back spasms and a strained muscle around a disk in his lower spine.

Phillies pitcher Roy Halladay will be on the disabled list for about 6-8 weeks. Halladay is 4-5 with a 3.98 ERA in 11 starts. He has pitched at least 220 innings in each of the past 6 seasons, and 4 times led the league in innings. He has pitched 72 1/3 innings this year so far.


Venus and Serena Williams were knocked out of the French Open this past weekend.
Venus Williams played in her first major tournament August, and sister Serena
