Pistons win NBA Championship.

Detroit finally put the Lakers out of their ever-increasing misery tonight, winning Game 5 and the championship, 100-87.

If the Lakers are in the finals, it must be Tuesday.

I get to enjoy another season of watching the most smug (smuggest?) team on earth play for yet another set of rings to add to its collection.

The Blazers’ team motto? “Beat L.A.”

Today’s game against L.A. was the only Blazer game this season to be broadcast on ABC, so I made a point of watching it. And my boys made it worth it, with a huge 101-99 win over the dread Lakers.
