NBizarroA Finals and Danica

I don't usually comment on sports, but damn, if it wasn't disappointing enough to see Steve Nash, Amare Stoudemire, and the rest of the Phoenix Suns get bowled over by Tim Duncan and the San Antonio Spurs, how about the Miami Heat getting beat by the Detroit Pistons in a Game 7. Not to take anything away from the teams that made it to The Finals, but I'd much rather see the Suns and the Heat in a seven game series than Pistons-Spurs. Besides the fact that it will be a slow-paced, boring, and low scoring series, there's just something about the players on the two remaining teams that I don't like.

ENOUGH WITH DANICA. She did well for her first Indy 500, but get off of her proverbial jock. Dan Wheldon won the race but gets a fraction of her pub. Podium finishers don't even get mentioned on the site, it goes directly from Wheldon to Patrick -ridiculous!!! Oddly enough, with all of the hype about the race for the month of May, I didn't know when or what channel it aired on. I caught the F1 race and even the NASCRAP race, but I entirely missed the Indy 500. C'est la vie -I didn't miss much- open wheel cars shouldn't be racing LTO anyway.

In a related story, the mainstream and sports press is giving Robby Gordon a hard time about bringing up Danica's weight, but Gordon has a valid point. If all of the Indy cars weigh the same and the drivers are not counted in the minimum weight measurement, there is a significant advantage for the more svelte drivers. Wilbon, you're making yourself look like a fool yourself for calling Gordon a idiot.
