Hit and Run: Friday Edition

Bad Maverick
Do you see that? Danny Tanner is laughing at you.

From Oakland to Sacktown, the Bay Area and back down, Cali is where they put they Mavs down. The eighth seeded Golden State Warriors beat the shit out of the Dallas Mavericks last night, 111-86, and won the series in six games. Let’s all just agree that I didn’t paraphrase 2pac, k?

Don't call me mighty
Ryan, did you really quack at the principal?

The Anaheim Ducks moved on to the Western Conference finals by beating the Vancouver Canucks 2-1 in double overtime. Ducks, Canucks…there’s a dirty limerick in there somewhere. Former coach Gordon Bombay could not be reached for comment.

My Boxer Has a First Name
This boxer has a first name, it’s O-S-C-A-R…

Guess I won’t be watching another episode of “The World’s Cutest Puppies”. Tomorrow night, Oscar De La Hoya faces Floyd Mayweather in what’s being called the biggest fight in years. The last time there was a fight that got this much press, it involved Ike and Tina Turner.

I so had one of those on my birthday cake last year.

Irishman Padraig Harrington’s 66 lead the first round of the Wachovia Championship, but Tiger Woods is just a stroke back. I’m sorry, but whenever I see Tiger, I think of that scene in Dennis the Menace where Dennis fixed Mr. Wilson’s broken dentures with Chiclets. Regardless, the winner of the tournament receives a free checking account with no hidden fees, an ATM card, and a Wachovia soft cooler.

Bryce Taylor
I’z in ur hitnrun, blowin invisible bubblz

The NCAA has decided to move the 3-point line one foot back, from 19 feet, 9 inches to 20 feet, 9 inches. Pending approval, the change will take place before the 2008-2009 season. And yes, this is just a flimsy excuse to post a picture of Bryce Taylor. He’s going to get a mention in any story involving college basketball, Oregon, 25 cent food dispensers, seeing a duck-crossing sign on a bike path, or standing in the Target checkout behind a man wearing Duckhead shorts. So there.

  1. The last time there was a fight that got this much press, it involved Ike and Tina Turner.

    Brett Myers (who has a save percentage of 1.00, thank you very much) would like you to direct that statement to his arm.


    Here I was, all happy with the sweet picture of Golden Boy, and then you lower the boom with BRYCE TAYLOR! BRYCE TAYLOR! BRYCE TAYLOR!

    I’m going to smile the rest of the day about this.

    (Other than the fact that yesterday I had to groan about hearing the news over the movement of the college 3-pt line. Some people *cough* my dad *cough* were upset when they added it to college ball twenty years ago, so I don’t want to have that conversation again.)

  3. Thank God they don’t allow the players to dunk yet. That will ruin the game.

    And Clare, if that trend continues, I’m afraid Jonathan Papelbon is going to shove Brett Myers’ wife, you know, just for luck.

  4. Diana Bobar – No lie, I check your blog almost every day – a few times a day. I would have never considered going to Romania before, but those pictures in the fields of yellow flowers a couple of weeks ago were amazing.
