Lots of great action around the sports world today, so where was I? Attending my nephew’s eighth birthday party and spending ten hours with family, of course. Always nice to see everyone – who cares about missing out on the Kentucky Derby, Mayweather-De La Hoya, the NBA playoffs and Chien-Ming Wang?
Oh, that’s right: I do.
So, for anyone else who might have missed out on the day’s festivities, here is a brief rundown:
Kentucky Derby: Street Sense goes from (nearly) worst to first, winning by 2 ½ lengths. My pick, Storm in May? Sixteenth.
Mayweather-De La Hoya: Floyd earns the split-decision win to remain undefeated. Media response was also split: the Associated Press scored it for Mayweather, 116-112, Yahoo! Sports called it a draw.
Jazz-Rockets, Game 7: Carlos Boozer was kinda effective (35 points, 14 rebounds, 41 minutes) in Utah’s 103-99 win. Houston’s Tracy McGrady had 29 points and 14 assists.
Chien-Ming Wang: So close, yet so far. Wang took a perfect game into the eighth before Ben Broussard killed it with a homerun. The Yankees walked away with the win, 8-1.
