It’s been a long time since I wrote on here last. Not including the last two days that I wrote something. So what has happened since I last was on here in February.
The NCAA tournament was another one for the ages. Close games and incredible buzzer beaters. Oh and Kentucky lost, which was the best thing ever. Duke took home the title beating Wisconsin in a very well played finale. Hats off to the Dukies, even though they aren’t my favorite team.
The NBA playoffs saw some interesting match-ups, but nobody was prepared to take down the buzzsaw that was the Golden State Warriors. Playing out of their frickin’ gourds, especially NBA MVP Steph Curry, during their title run the Warriors look poised to be the first back to back title winners since the Lakers. Lebron gave a valiant effort in the Finals, but injuries cursed the Cavs and they could not sustain their lEast coast dominance against the West team.
The NFL went an entire month without somebody getting arrested… for the first time in 5 YEARS. Let that sink in for a moment. Are you kidding me??
Oh yeah and then there was that Super Bowl thing, The Seahawks were about to win and then they threw the ball instead of running it and the Patriots escaped a very entertaining game. Better luck this year Seahawks, 2-3 is a tough start though.
The NHL Playoffs I didn’t watch as much, but the Blackhawks beat the Lightning in what should have been an Eastern Conference finals series. The best series of the playoffs was between the Ducks and the Blackhawks and many people never even gave the Lightning a chance to beat the Mighty Blackhawks.
Golf has seen a major shift in power. Gone are Tiger, Phil and (Rory?). Say hello to Jordan Spieth, Jason Day and Rickie Fowler. They are the present and future of golf. Speith emerged as the best player in the world by winning the first two majors of the year, before fading somewhat down the stretch and seeing Day play as incredible as possible in the summer to catch him up on his pedestal. Rory needs a bounce back year next year or he will become the forgotten successor to Tiger Woods.
Tennis was as it has been. Djokovic is King. Murray is Queen. Federer is ageless. Nadal is somehow broken. Djokovic appears to not be slowing down soon, but expect Federer to win at least one more major tournament next year.
I think that is all for now. Millions of other things happened, but I only have so much time here to write. That should at least catch you up if you are living on an island and the only thing that you can read is this tiny blog.
