Chip, Canada, Turd Sandwiches and The Bron

1) Somehow, Chipper Jones gets nominated for a "Just Shut Up" award on Mike & Mike this morning for bitching (rightfully) about the unbalanced interleague schedule. This crap cost the Tigers the division title last year, and may cost the Braves the title this year. On a side note, I think its absolutely delightful that Chipper has officially reached the "I Dont Give a Fuck" stage of his career. Every interview becomes infinitely more interesting...

2) Can LeBron just not have a bad night? He has a poor night shooting, and all of sudden all the blog-'o-homos are accusing him of mailing it in. Dude has averaged 26.6 so far in the playoffs (career average is 26.7), but he's averaging two more assists and rebounds per game than the regular season. Oh, and the Cavs are 6-1 and playing on a much higher level now that Larry Hughes is running the point. Speaking of Hughes, while watching game 2 with my buddy Rick, we both made comments to the effect of "Hughes is a free agent after next year, isn't he? We should think about maybe giving him an extension..." Bears mentioning that we've never thought about that once during the 2 years of the Larry Hughes Era.

3) I don't want to jinx it, but I'm thinking this is the year the Stanley Cup returns to Canada (last time a Canadian team won it was my beloved '93 Habs...the team that made me fall in love with hockey...or, at least, made me fall in love with NHL '94 on Sega Genesis...the game that made me fall in love with hockey). The Senators fed the Sabres a turd sandwich tonight...outshooting them 32-15 and beating them 1-0 at home. The Sens finally have toughness up front (Dany Heatley is an unbelievable upgrade over skittish winger Marian Hossa), and simply don't make mistakes on D. They are playing on a different level than anyone right now. Sorry Skurn...don't think the Wings have what it takes to get past this team...not this year, anyway (and especially not without Mathieu Schneider)

4) Season over. Fucking Smoltz just got hurt. Who needs a drink...

You're so effing Canadian. Only a Canadian original would long for the cup to return north of the border, even if it's to a team that isn't their favorite Canadian team. Traitor.

My friend Brian from Buffalo has officially been put on "Shoelace Watch". Our friends have confiscated his shoelaces and razors...the sad thing is for once Buffalo has actually been happy the past few months, now everyone is back to normal--being a-holes and binge drinking out of spite.

Shame on you, BB...Who's in for a Canadian Bacon-type scenario?

Seriously...how do you not root for Buffalo? That city has been fed turd sandwiches for 40 years...between Scott Norwood's wide right, Brett Hull's skate-in-the-crease, The Drew Bledsoe Era, and that whole Goo Goo Dolls thing...Buffalo has had it about as rough as anyone

Believe me, I know...my friend, who you "met", we'll call him "Misfit" here...he's from Buffalo and Brian is his living-in-denial roommate.

Misfit has also been a Buffalo Bills season ticket holder for over 15 years...

Apparently last night after the game he was like, "It's not over, you never know, man...you never know." Desperate times in B-Town.

How can someone cheer for Buffalo unless they're from Buffalo? What a god-awful place. I'm totally uninspired by it. It's like cheering for Jacksonville. Or Albuquerque.
