I have discovered the greatest t-shirt design ever:

Well, the Pistons blew it. Articles abound about how it was a “great” and “classic” game 7, but I thought it was horrible, and not just because the Spurs won. The entire game was so sloppy, and the officiating made it almost unwatchable. I am not saying the officials helped the Spurs win, it was equally as bad for both teams. Amazing that at the highest level of competitive basketball in the United States you find the worst officials. The only good thing about all this is that I was so upset while watching the game that by the time it was over, and they lost, I was over it, and didn’t care. I turned the TV off with 2 minutes to go and went to bed. It would have been nice if game 7 could have been as well played and as fun to watch as games 5 & 6.

Game 7!!! Pistons won for the first time in San Antonio since 1997, and became the first road team down 3-2 ever to win an NBA Finals game. Plus this is the first NBA Finals game 7 since 1994, should be fun.

In other news, Billy Corgan has announced plans to "renew and revive" The Smashing Pumpkins. I don't have a clue what this means, but I am hoping that means James Iha and D'Arcy are involved (no doubt that Jimmy Chamberlain will be drumming). Interesting announcement to make the day you release a solo album.

I am still sick about the end of Game 5. All credit to Robert Horry, who was amazing, (what, 25 points in the last 18 minutes of the game?) but how in the world can you leave him open? Let Tony Parker drive, Let Manu Ginobili drive, let Tim Duncan post up- the worst that can happen is two points and a second overtime. But leave Horry open behind the three point line? Argh! I will admit though this game would have never even gone to overtime if Duncan could hit free throws under pressure. Here's hoping the Pistons do something miraculous to force a game 7, the first in the Finals in what seems like at least 10 years.

By the way, 'Batman Begins' is AMAZING.

Batman Begins was released today, I can't wait to see it. From the reviews it has received, it sounds amazing, and supposedly the best Batman movie. I personally don't think it can be better than the first Batman movie, but it doesn't have to be. With Christopher Nolan directing, it has to be good.

The Pistons played great last night, making the series 2-1. Amazing what playing on your home court can do, now they just need to win two more in Detroit. Ben Wallace was amazing, this was my favorite play of the game:

Lauren Blakenship recently became the most successful athlete in the history of Samford University. Not only did she qualify for NCAA Track & Field’s National Championships, she finished 9th. She ran 16:16 at NCAA Regionals and the first round of Nationals, easily the best time in Samford history. Most of you probably have no idea how fast this is, it is hard for even me to comprehend. It would be the equivalent of a male running about 13:50 for the 3.1 mile distance. As a former Samford runner and current record holder, I am in awe.

Luxury- Health & Sport (August)
Nada Surf- The Weight Is a Gift (September)

The Pistons look terrible, the first two NBA Finals games were embarrassing in more ways than one. Tonight maybe they’ll redeem themselves.
