Gotta say, I loved the Kings fans that brought cutouts of the Jersey Shore losers and taunted the New Jersey Devils during their 4-0 loss to the Los Angeles Kings during Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals at Staples Center on Monday night! And what an amazing run the Kings are on in the postseason in their quest to bring the coolest trophy in all of sports to So Cal for the first time in team history…Go Kings!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So this many months since winning the Super Bowl, the New York Giants finally got their championship ring this week. Have you seen it? Can you guess how much one ring is valued at? Click ahead and check it out.
Update: The Chargers have posted a tribute page on their website – click here to get there – on which you can leave your condolences to the Seau family. Also, Saints OL Eric Olsen has posted a great story about an amazing thing Junior Seau did for him as a kid.
Not much to say here other than this: whether you’re a Bolthead or a member of Raider Nation – whether you’re a Trojan or a Bruin, for that matter – you had to admire the talent and heart of Junior Seau. His death today – potentially a suicide – is <insert your preferred synonym for “hideous beyond hideous” here>. We’re sure you join us in sending heartfelt condolences to his family.
Frankrupt – the worst sports owner in the history of life not named Sterling or Stepien – is history. (Well, unless you count the parking lots he still owns part of.) Lift a glass or ten to celebrate.
That is all.
Yee-freaking-haw – it’s time for the Lakers’ Second Annual Quest To Catch The Beelzebubs of Basketball, er, Boston Celtics In NBA Championships, also known as the playoffs. Yep, it’s now okay to come to after another pointless NBA regular season, conveniently shortened by a couple months thanks to a lockout we’ve all forgotten.
And this go-round, as expected, we have some exciting new guests. Please welcome to the dance floor the professional sporting world’s former answer to The Twelve Stooges, “yourrrrrrr” Los Angeles Clippers!!! (Actually, the Clips have really always been about one Stooge, but since he owns the team, and his buffoonery has been so, uh, buffoonarific, even all-stars like Danny Manning and Dominique Wilkins have staggered under his buffoonishness.)
Going into the season, we told you SoCal’s two NBA entries were more or less evenly matched, and that’s more or less how things played out this season, with the Lakers (thankfully) taking the season series and, by the skin of Kobe Bryant’s shin, the Pacific Division. Okay, so what happens now? Here we go…
