Basketball and Futbol

Being a native to the Eastern Conference, i was happy to see the C's get the rings, though i agree with the Dude about Boston sports, though i still have a little thing for the Red Sox, but not being much of a baseball fan i dont care too much. Anyway i was glad to see the East defeat the West when the Western Conference was so loaded. in other NBA news, the city of Seattle vs. Clay Bennet rages on. i dont know who is more to blame, the fools who sold the team to a business man from Oklahoma City (where they were hugely successful hosting the Hornets in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina) or Clay Bennet who clearly and shamelessly had absolutely no intention of keeping the team in Seattle. the rich little schmuck couldnt even wait 2 more years until the contract with Key Arena expired to move the team. Personally, i'd hate to see the Northwest lose the Sonics and only be left with the Blazers. thats one less Pacer game i get to see live and in person. Anyhooo, basketball is over, baseball sucks and football is a long way off. but wait, this year we have futbol! the Euro cup is in full swing, having finished group play and begun the elimination rounds. And if you dont appreciate futbol, then you didnt see Turkeys amazing comeback against the Checks, in which they were down 2-0 and scored 3 goals in the final 15 minutes to help them advance to the next round. currently it is halftime of the Germany v Portugal game, and the Germans are up 2-1. I'm pulling for Portugal in this one. Overall, i always like the Netherlands. But this year the Russians are one of the younger teams in the tournament and are fun to watch. Unfortunately, they play the Netherlands in the first round, so i guess i'll be rooting for the winner of that game. the other matches in this round are Turkey v Croatia and Spain v Italy. so, if you havent seen any of the Euro Cup, its not to late to start watching. besides, futbol is the worlds most popular sport and hey, the matches are commercial free!
and im out
