Okay, I know I’m super late on my NBA Conference Final Predictions so I will not bother dedicating a section to them, but will just include them as part of my Foul Shot multi-subject post. I’ve been hella busy with work and as I write this piece I’m in the middle of grilling some cajun catfish outside, setting up my daughters pool, paying some bills online and trying to entertain and piss you off all at the same time. David Blaine ain’t got shit on me.
Grilled Caucasian: I’m not gonna sit here and pretend that I watch any type of Nascar or Formula one racing but being that its Memorial Day Weekend and anyone who’s ever been outside their bedroom (which isnt that often with some of you internet folk) knows Grilling and Memorial Day go hand in hand. I think racing and hockey are very similar for me. I never ever ever ever will watch either one unless A) It’s highlights of a great accident or B) It’s a highlight of two caucasian men in skates trying to kill each other. Nothing better than White on White crime. (notice they never start a fight with one of the few brothers who play?) Anyway, if your wondering who that is trying not to be part of the Memorial Day festivites in that picture it is Buddy Rice who was participating in the Indianopolis 500 on Sunday. All you Jeffrey Dahmer types, put the BBQ sauce away, he escaped the firepit.
Babe Ruth Is Dead!: GOOD! Barry might not be playing great due to injuries but he still passed that old woman beating, alcoholic, overrated sloppy bum. Barry Bonds is possibly the greatest player EVER and he has never been found guilty of any type substance violations. So save the gossip for someone else. If he say, she say made someone guilty, D.C. police be looking for people from Roc-A-Fella for involvement with the Cam shooting. I will even go one step further, let’s say Barry "The Greatest Player Ever" Bonds did use steroids, its null and void because the fact that Babe Ruth did not have to play against any minority players during his career cancels it out!
Jermaine Taylor vs Winky Wright: Not much hype has been made about this fight. For what reason I cannot figure out. Jermaine Taylor beat one of the best fighters our era has ever seen in Bernard Hopkins. Winky Right is one of the most technical fighters of the era and has beaten just about everyone who’s stepped in front of him. Sounds like the makeup for a great fight. So why has the promotion has been that of a backpack underground indie hiphop album? I don’t care about the two billboards above McDonalds on 125th street. You know damn well we don’t order pay-per-view in the hood, we use the bootleg box. Wise up yall! Anyway, I’m gonna run with Jermaine Taylor on this one. He already beat a great technical fighter than Wright when he defeated Hopkins twice, plus he’s stronger than anyone Winky has faced.
NBA Conference Finals: I hate the fact that I’m late with this and don’t want to go into each series that much. I can tell you I did pick Miami over Detroit before they were up 2-1. I also picked Dallas over Phoenix. Miami just looks like their chemistry picked up against NJ and the fact that Detroit went 7 games with Cleveland + the fact they have Flip Saunders coaching and not Larry Brown AND Miami happens to have a coach by the name of Pat Riley. No way is Riles getting outcoached by a dude named after a dolphin. I’m rooting for Phoenix but I don’t see them getting by Dallas. I’ll go one step further than normal here though.. If Dallas players Detroit in the finals, I got Dallas. If Miami plays Dallas, I got Miami. If Phoenix makes the finals, I got whoever they playing.
