Loss we can live with
It was pretty painful watching the Celtics run out of gas in the middle of the fourth quarter of game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals Saturday and it was even more painful watching the Heat celebrate the victory. But Saturday's loss was a loss that Celtics fans should be able to live with, when you get beat you get beat.
The toughest pill to swallow in game 7, however, isn't the Celtics stumbling to the finish, it's the play of Chris Bosh. Boston challenged him to make big shots and Bosh did just that with three big three point shots, all from the corner. Boston did a great job containing Dwyane Wade, they did all they could against Lebron James, but it was the man who plays third option that ultimately delivered the daggers.
With that said Bosh still does not look healthy, and because of that Miami will not beat the Thunder in the NBA Finals. Kevin Durant gets a title before Lebron, Oklahoma City in six.
Saturday's Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley fight was one of the most anticipated fights of the year. But unfortunately it turned out to be another black eye for the sport of boxing.
Every pundit and journalist that covered the fight had Pacquiao winning at least eight of the 12 rounds, HBO even scored the bout 11 rounds to one for Pacquiao, but the judges awarded Bradley the split decision nod.
The controversy sets up a rematch between the two that will rake in big bucks. It's too bad we once again won't get the fight everyone wants to see, Pacquiao vs. Floyd Mayweather Jr.
