It’s all over. The New York Rangers beat the Montreal Canadiens 1-0 in game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals and will now advance to the Stanley Cup. For New York, this will be their first time in the Stanley Cup Finals since 1994. The main story for the Rangers of course is Martin St. Louis playing with the grief of losing his mother France. However, in terms of on ice affairs, this is a team that is playing with a motivated coach and even more motivated veteran group of players. With that being said I do not think the Rangers will fall short of the Stanley cup.
Spurs have now taken a 3-2 series lead over the Thunder with authority with the 117-89 blowout win. This series in a weird way is taking an interesting turn, each team has blown each other out when they have the home court. If that is an indication of anything we will probably see a blowing in favor of the Oklahoma City thunder. The first team to win on the road will be the team that win this series.
The Streak is over. Blue Jays finally lost a game and it came against the Kansas City Royals in the 10th inning. This means the Jays' winning streak has been cut off at 9. Despite the loss the Blue Jays are still in first in a less than standard American East division this year. The loss is technically meaningless for now, what people are wondering is if the Blue Jays form of late is sustainable and that remains to be seen.
Donald Sterling besides being a racist, cannot decide on anything. One minute he wants to fight this ban and take them to court, and the other minute he decides he wants to quietly walk away from the franchise. Well today he may have gotten an offer he should not refuse. According to reports, Former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has submitted a winning bid to buy the Los Angeles Clippers for 2 billion dollars. If this for real? Or are we going to see Sterling fight for this team, either way $2 billion is a lot of more money than the Clippers are worth so it’s a fantastic deal for Sterling.
Reminder: The World Cup is in 13 days, let’s get excited people... that is all. In all seriousness, the World Cup is very important because sports wise, it is ridiculously anticipated and love, and for some absolute reason, there are always political undertones that comes with the tournament. This time the political undertone has to do with the civil unrest in Brazil. Whether the World Cup can change the situation over there is a mystery but one thing’s for sure this is going to be an interesting tourney
