Did you post some ridiculous thing about rooting for some team and feeling worried that some would see it as bandwagoneering?

Tell them you are Bengals fan. That should end that discussion.

Bruins beat the Penguins 3-0, and the Blackhawks won 2-1 in game 1 tonight of both series.

Thankfully, both of the series are going the way i want, though i wont be too upset if the Kings beat the Blackhawks and repeat.

Keep floppin' Miami. Keep floppin'.

This series is just too funny. Even if the Heat do win it all, they have drastically underachieved with the way they have played. I've said it before and I'll say it again: The Heat are soft as South Beach!

Thoughts on tonight’s game 7:

For the Pacers to win Rob Hibbert will have to score 20+ and have 10+ rebounds.

Pacers have to out rebound the Heat. When they out rebound Miami, they neutralize the effectiveness of birdman and Battier.

Hibbert needs to stay out of foul trouble. If Miami is smart, they will use Lebron to attack the basket early on and draw quick fouls on Hibbert. I don’t know why they haven’t done this in every game. When Hibbert is not on the court, the Pacers are just not the same team.

Don’t expect the Pacers to get any close calls in game 7. The NBA is about money, and the Heat generates more revenue than the Pacers. So I will be shocked if the refs give the Pacers any questionable calls in their favor. I hope the game will be called fairly, but I won’t hold my breath.

In the end, I think Miami wins. If Hibbert gets into early foul trouble, the Heat will win easily. Of course, this Miami team routinely underachieves, so the Pacers have a chance.

If Miami are able to keep the Pacers from scoring more points than them throughout 48 minutes of play, I think we are going to see the Heat getting a chance to add to last year's championship.

Actually I am terrible at scrabble. I really hate it.

Then again most of the people I know don't use the timer.

A mom and daughter I know (both adults) play it like chess via the mail. They use dictionaries and allow games to go on for days.

DAYS. SCRABBLE. WITH DICTIONARIES.

I tripled lettered. TRIPLE. EVERY YEAR. Wudda had four, but I got the athletic scholarship in a sport my HIGH SCHOOL DIDN'T HAVE.

What does that mean?
