Friday's with the Forehead.

The Finals – darn it, just when they looked like they are finished they erase a huge deficit in the last few minutes of game 3, win it and get some momentum back. You know what bugs me more than anything about it? The fact that the 2004 NBA Champion Pistons were the only NBA team in league history to win all three games in a row at home and now it looks like the damn Heat may take that from the Pistons too! Please Dallas at least show up on Sunday so the Pistons can still have that!

The Tigers – continue to roll but it looks like Todd Jones may be in a little trouble. Look, as much as I like Zumaya I can not support him as a full time closer yet, I just can’t. If you make the move I say let Rodney get more save chances for awhile and let Jones and Zumaya share the set up role for awhile. My reasoning? If the Tigers are in contention later in the year and the playoffs are on the line, even though his nickname is the roller coaster, do you really want to trust a rookie and a second year guy getting his first real taste as a closer to be the ones to stop a 19 year drought of no playoff baseball? I am not too sure if I am willing to do that, no matter how promising they both seem and no matter how shaky Jones is, because once Leyland makes the move there is no turning back. I say let them share it for awhile until Jones works himself out of this funk and then see what happens. Besides, I am more concerned with the funk Shelton is in, what the hell is up with that?

The attack – yes, I was attacked by an anonymous blogger the other day and am still bothered by it. For the record anyone who plays any professional sport is a better athlete than me because they made it to that level and I never sniffed it so get off of my case! However that doesn’t mean that I have to enjoy the sport or what they do, to me, soccer and hockey are boring as hell! If that makes me a gallon beer drinking non 3 mile jogging fat ass so be it, but the shit is still boring as hell! Besides according to this article here and this one here if I drink 17 beers a day (how close to a gallon is that?) and eat four pizzas while watching my “sport” and then chase it all with a pot or two of coffee I am in tip-top shape anyway, so there!

That is all I got for today, I think next week I will touch on Tiger Stadium a little but I still need to read the article and let it all sink in. No, I am not a “stadium hugger” Big Al, I agree that thing is WAY PAST ITS PRIME but I just don’t know if I like what they are doing with it that’s all. Later – the sports dude.

Where the hell have you been?

All right, all right, I have been lazy I will admit but I have been extremely busy too so cut me some slack. Contrary to popular belief I have not been wallowing in self pity over the disposal of my Pistons, albeit early and sad, quite frankly I was over it by the next day. Does it still suck? Yeah, but watching the Mavericks pummel the hell out of the Heat is helping any leftover wounds as well.

Speaking of the Finals has anyone actually watched? Me, I admit, turned on game #2 the other night but that was mostly because I was dusting and vacuuming the basement and there was not much else on. Yes, that is right people, the sports dude dons the old apron from time to time to, Mrs. Sports Dude makes sure of that! Listen and I say this quite honestly, I am not being a sour puss because the Heat outplayed the Pistons and won the series, but I really am glad to see Dallas up, putting a whooping on the Heat and I would love to see a sweep. Will the sweep happen? Most likely not, I think the Heat will get a game or two, but I can still dream. Look, again I say no sour puss here, but I really do not want to see Walker, Wade, Mourning, Payton or White Chocolate hoisting that trophy, I just can not stand those cats. Lastly I would like to add a couple comments on the Finals – one, the Heat look like they built themselves to just beat the Pistons and if they happened to win a title along the way then great, but they already played their game 7 and won their championship. Lame asses!!!! Next, as Shaq goes so do the Heat, Wade is not good enough to carry that team all by himself, and I say this because the longer the big fella plays this year the more tired he will be next year. Ahhh yes... there is still hope in Piston town!

So the Tigers are winning and I have actually enjoyed watching the games this year. No I am not bandwagoning, I watched games in the past to, I am just saying I am actually enjoying them now as opposed to just watching to watch. I would also like to throw this question out there and simply say that is it just me or would anyone else be surprised if Dombroski did NOT make a move before the deadline? Me, I think he will, how about you? Next, if you all want to give up on Jones as the closer I say go to Rodney, I prefer Zumaya in the set up role where I think he is better served than closer.

So the World Cup is being played and the USA lost huh? Let me say this about soccer, it is even LESS popular than hockey here and that tells you how low on the food chain it is. Unless it is women’s soccer, now that I can watch, but for different reasons!

Well I am about a week away from my Northern escape where I do nothing but sit on a front porch on five acres for a week and a half either drinking coffee (A.M.) or drinking beer (anytime not in the A.M.) and I can not wait. Sports pig, the baseball game may be out for me, I will email more details when I know for sure, but at least I think it would be neat to meet the most popular sports blogger in Leelanau! I will email soon brother!

Later and hopefully I will post more than once a week again soon! The lazy sports dude.
