    I have Nadal winning. Then again, I've seen the match.

    Game 2 of the NBA finals was really good tonight.
    And I'm really excited for the World Cup. My team (US) is absolutely screwed but. It'll be fun.

    LeBron played really well. The problem for the Spurs is that you can't put Diaw on LeBron or you can't put Kawhi on LeBron either. The problem with what the Spurs have is that playing Duncan with Splitter isn't going to go well. Spo has Rashad as PF and he is not going to play close to the post. It is ineffective because with all due respect to Splitter, he is not a defender like Duncan.

    So you think Pop will change that up and go small while pushing PnR with Splitter on the floor to give Duncan rest. We will see what happens.

    My Heat got the Spurs tonight. Got a feeling Chalmers is gonna hit his stride tonight after such a poor showing these first 3 games. But if he's a no-show, put in Toney Douglas. A Cole-Douglas backcourt tandem could at least bring back some of that defensive intensity that's been missing for so much of the year.
    And I don’t care if I lose
    Because my heroes did too
    They shouted court should be adjourned
    Because the jury are fools
    And the judge can’t decipher his left from his right
    Or his right from his wrong

    Surprise surprise the fix was in for Brazil. I am so, so surprised that such a thing would happen in a FIFA sanctioned event. That being said, I'm excited for the games, especially the Yanks.

    On the NBA, go Spurs. But I think most of you already know how I feel about the Heat (along with LeBum, even if I hate Wade more for being a dirty player). They seem to have adjusted to the lessons learned from last years Finals well, now it is Miami's turn to adjust right back. I think they will and this will go seven.

    Douglas isn't that great. Play LeBron as a point forward if Chalmers fails with Bosh, Wade, Rashard and Allen. If go big slot out Allen for Andersen.

    Anyway WC started and Brazil won 3-1. Croatia didn't have the firepower but Brazil's defense was average at best. I love David Luiz but he just goes all over the place. Penalty was not one but as a defender tugging on a striker's shirt is daring the ref to call it.

    Hats off to the Spurs. Dominated two consecutive games on the road from wire-to-wire. Leonard is a beast.

    Got to love a tactically inept game with rain and very tight offside rulings. Amazingly like fun.

    Scandalous.

    hard to tell if mexico was actually offsides because I'm watching on a corner of my laptop screen while I'm supposed to be working. Care to give me some input @Lyrebird because I don't want to make fun of more shitty officiating if they were the right calls.

    First one was very tight. Second call was pretty iffy, was very inconclusive. Third one very obviously offside.

    The third one I could see real clear haha. But yeah, I suppose I'll give the officials a pass for this one. Even if the tactics suck, I'm still getting pulled into the game.

    Mexico definitely has the better of it so far, but no goals to show for it.

    Wooo there we go Netherlands vs Spain. Because I'm Dutch I obviously want Netherlands to win, but under the current circumstances I'm not that optimistic. I'm gonna say 2-0 for Spain.
