The Cleveland cavaliers are the mistake by the lake

Game 2 lebron hits the winner it makes up for the jordan shots that have beaten the cavs in the playoffs twice, the browns giving up 98yards and losing to john elway and the broncos etc, and guess what they are still gonna blow it. I thought the cavs would come to orlando and split and get out of here and go home and win in 7 games, instead they lose both, tonite the magic hit 17 3's thats unreal but thats their game when they hit them they win when they dont they look like a college team..

That last shot by lebron looked like it was going in it was the right distance just bad direction, i cant believe cleveland is struggling like this, they looked unbeatable in their first 8 playoff games now they have to win 3 in a row to keep their season alive, u know how many teams have come back from down 3-1??? 8 only 8 and i dont see cleveland doing it. Over the last 3yrs inlcuding the playoffs the magic are 12-5 against the cavs, and against the lakers ya they swept them this year too. Its a shame they have those kobe lebron puppet commercials all over the place what a waste of money because one of the so called MVP'S isnt gonna be there in the end, and the refs have even tried to help them, 3 bad calls against howard on lebron during this series, a no call at the end of the game which i get the whole lets swallow our whistle and let the players decide it but if that was lebron hes getting to the line, the cavs cant even beat the magic with the refs of their side, they deserve to continue the long standing tradition of the mistake by the lake, just like a few years ago we had the Indians up 3-1 on the redsox well BOHICA cleveland and if u dont know what that means.. Bend Over Here It Comes Again!!!!!!!

Orlando magic vs Cleveland Cavaliers game 1

After watching the unreal game last night between the Denver Nuggets and Los Angeles Lakers i didnt think anything would top it anytime soon boy was i wrong. By the end of the first quarter tonite Lebron James looked like a man amongst boys and it appeared to me that the Cavs were gonna run away and hide and have their 9th straight win by over 10pts in the 2009 playoffs. Even at halftime with the Cavs Williams making about a 7o foot 3 pointer to stretch the lead to 15 and go into halftime with all the momentum i never felt the magic had a chance.

Then the 3rd quarter, something became very obvious, lebron james was far and away the best player on the court all nite, however he has no bench and not alot of help, the orlando magic bench outscored clevelands 25-5. The Magic chipped away and away and outscored the cavs 30-19 to bring them to a 82-78 deficit at the end of the 3rd quarter. Ive watched every magic playoff game and the most consistent player was the one who hit the big big shot tonite, rashard lewis has been there just about every game for them and boy did he hit a big shot tonite. Even before that u can see they magic learned something from beating boston, Hedo turkoglu was at the top of the 3point line, faked the player up and jumped into him, ive never seen him do that in about 30games, where did he learn that trick from watching paul pierce whos mastered it in the last 7 games. The magic are taking a few tricks here and there they learned and applying them now in crucial situations, really nice to see a team grow like that.

I fully expect a Cavs win in game 2, a loss again at home would be downright painful. Chances are the Cavs will get one on the road and this series could well be on its way to 7 games which as a fan is great. It was nice to see that the Cavs are not bullet proof, i thought they were i picked them to win this series 4-2, we will really see how good they are now because they have alot of pressure on them the next 2 games, if they lose game 2 or 3 they are gonna be in a serious hole.

The orlando magic have beaten the champs

The orlando magic beat the boston celtics tonite in what as a celtics fan was just an ugly game from the beginning.. Did they not watch the lakers earlier in the day run out to a quick lead at home, instead they just looked like a team that hasnt played at all together for the first quarter and most of the first half while the magic dominated them. The celtics 32-0 record when having a 3-2 series lead stat is gone out the door. We should never have been in a game 7 to begin with the magic probably should have won this series in 5 games. And if jameer nelson and kevin garnett were both healthy the celtics would have won in 6 or 7 but they both didnt play so this is what we got.

The Magic may have saved stan van gundys job he was certainly gonna get fired after his best player got on him after a tough loss, it wouldnt be the first time a magic player got a coach fired, see tracy mcgrady and doc rivers a decade ago. The magic went 13-21 from 3-point land theres no way anyone is gonna beat u when u shoot that good i dont care if they have lebron or kobe however the magics biggest asset tonite will ultimately be what brings them crashing down to earth, teams that live and die with the 3-point shot do not win championships.

I like watching the magic they are a fun team and dwight howard is already a beast imagine if he had a go to move like a hook shot or a hakeem shake or a ewing face up shot he would be unstoppable. I know the magic have beaten the cavs 9 of the last 13, i know the magic swept the lakers this year 2-0, but thats regular season, and the cavs learned a little bit losing a tough game7 to the celtics about what its going to take. I think the cavs win 4-1 or 4-2 and i think we will have lakers vs cavs, thats what the network wants for ratings, its what america wants and its what i want.

Celtics vs Magic my Mothers day experience.

After picking up my sister after her cruise and having lunch with her and her new fiance before sending them back to CT and cooking on the grill it was here game time.. I went to friday nights magic blowout game of Boston but i knew tonite would be different after that embarrassment. I almost didnt wear my paul pierce #34 jersey as i have twice before friday and in march and we lost both games but something told me when they win you will be wishing u had it on instead of a celtics t-shirt so there i went , sox hat backwards , pierce jersey on, i took my uncle and my aunt for mothers day, we arrived at 630pm and here we go.

I went down to the court watched warmups i dont know why i do its like batting practice i just do i enjoy watching the routines and am amazed just how many shots these guys can make in a row when nobodys guarding them. Off to my seats in section 108, a nice tribute to chuck daly before the introductions, chuck was a magic coach a few years, let the detroit pistons to back to back titles and coached the original dream team in Barcelona, great man. Soo the game starts these 2 kids about 21ish 1 in particular sit behind me hes ok at first boston sucks red sox suck pierce sucks blah blah its all good im in enemy territory and have been to many redsox yankee games. They handed out these magic rally towels i just sat on mine, more to that later.

So halftime close game went to bathroom very quiet, not like friday when i got alot of celtics suck pierce sucks heres his bathroom handicapped. Soo 3rd qt the celtics are making a run now the guy has had alot of beer, starts saying people from Boston are PUSS(^#& ill let u fill in the blank, then starts going with the what happen to your sox the rays beat them evan longoria blah blah where i turned around and said hmm cole hammels, phillies? heard of em? Then he makes a few ohh pierce looks like he just got shot again falling down i say no it was a knife in a club he got attacked with. Then for some reason he thinks he went to duke and grew up in compton when i say umm no he went to kansas and grew up in englewood down the street from the old forum in LA, do u know anything about sports he got a little embarrassed, so now he pulls out his paddle thing a noise maker.

The Celtics are playing ok at this point but the magic are catching up and paul pierce now has 5fouls, he starts makin all that raquet right up against me and my uncle to where my uncle says something and hes like fuck boston blah blah and my uncle is a magic fan im the boston fan so my uncle says do u not see me cheering for the same team as u the last 2hrs? Once again he shuts down for a bit. Everyone else i got along great with i always tryto make friends and make it fun afterall your gonna be sitting with these people for 3hrs, i usually talk out the game with fellow opponents sitting around me makes for alot of fun of strategy and who should shoot, stuff like that. Ok Rashard Lewis hits 2 free throws, big ones, ive met rashard a few times, very cool guy just cant root for him when hes playing my team.

Big Baby davis really got it alot from the crowd including that idiot behind me, fat bastard cry baby, blahblah everything u can think of. He hits that big shot, and then im thinking pierce is gonna drive this to the basket and kick to Allen or House for the win and it goes to Davis, i hold my breathe , i see it go thru and i see that red light, game over 19K of people just totally stunned and not moving they just cant believe they lost, i turn around get my towel i was sitting on and throw it in that kids chest and say and i quote "heres your towel go home now and cry in it bitch" and then i left to a non responsive asshole.. Everyone else was lots of fun but it only takes 1 person to ruin it. As for sports events ive been to in person this ranks up there with manny's walk off in game 2 vs the angels in the ALCS in 2007, just great.

Off to the car, lots of high fives including a few in the bathroom while pissing it was quite strange but yet oddly fun, its 95 degrees im in the car i listen to the sox win, woohoo i get the bruins score woohoo, im in the parking lot were blocked in cant get out, i flash my jersey to fellow boston fans and get the hand gesture to go, i automatically think of the brotherhood of being a boston sports fan, just about all my family is up north but boston sports fans are everywhere, and you can always feel at home going to any Boston sporting event no matter where you are on gods green earth, what a great mothers day one i soon wont forget The end!

Manny Ramirez suspeded 50games for using fertility drug

When i first heard this story this morning i thought thats just manny being manny, hes a clown this is a guy who used to have a months worth of paychecks and 60K in his glove compartment when playing for the redsox. Manny Ramirez used HGC which is a women's fertility drug typically used by steroid users to restart their body's natural testosterone production as they come off a steroid cycle. A physician in Florida gave him this, unfortunately the medication was banned under our drug policy. You would think a physician whos giving a guy who makes 25million a year would check into what you can and cant have in your body before giving it to him.

Manny says hes passed at least 15 drug tests, and when the redsox were contacted today, and this is a team he left on bad terms they didnt believe he ever did steroids so that holds some weight in my book, now more than ever was the time to throw him under this bus if you think he did when he was playing there. What a bad time for this the dodgers are 21-8, undefeated 13-0 at home and now this.. Now manny joins a list that includes Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, Alex Rodriguez, Jose Canseco amongst others. People that have used any performance drug will not be in the hall of fame. And i actually feel kinda bad for manny hes not like bonds where hes hitting 50home runs still at 36, hes declining with age as you should if your not taking anything. How convenient that while all the focus is on the Left coast A-rod a man of allegations himself will slip back onto the field sometime soon, funny how that stuff works out.

Celtics Bulls, overtime again are you kidding me

This is simply unreal in all my life on this green earth i have never seen anything like this playoff series. Its had everything and the best is yet to come, i have a feeling game 7 will come down to the wire like the rest of them have except game 3 which was a Celtics blowout. Im a Celtics fan and sometimes i wonder if Garnett was healthy would this already be over? Probably. However a strange part of me is glad hes not playing, this series no matter who wins saturday nite will be remembered forever, the drama is 2nd to none, this is right up there with yankees vs redsox in the playoffs if not better. All im going to say is this saturday night go watch the game, i know you might not want too or u might have plans to go out, so at least record it because i think we are gonna be in store for something special.
