random musings

A one man show...
No one showed up for the Lakers tonight except Kobe Bryant... No one from the Lakers, outside of Kobe, could hit the broad side of a barn tonight leading to a Phoenix rout in Game 7 of the opening round of the playoffs. Kobe had 23 in the first half but LA was still down 15 and never got any closer. In addition to not being able to buy a shot, the Laker defense looked like swiss cheese as Phoenix scored at will.

Still in first, but barely...
The Rangers still lead the West, but barely. After back to back loses to the Yankees, the Rangers hold a slim 1/2 game lead over the A's. The Rangers are finally playing a quality team, after beating up on lowly Tampa Bay recently, but are coming up on the short end of the scoreboard. Hopefully they can salvage a win in the series on Sunday.

Number 8s...
Dale Jr. won at Richmond tonight, beating Denny Hamlin to the line. Kevin Harvick led the most laps but decided not to pit with the lead during a late caution and ended up 3rd.

Barbaro was untested in today's Kentucky Derby despite a full field of 20 horses. Unbeaten and well rested heading into the Derby, he will carry that same momentum to the Preakness in two weeks.
