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.

Finally

Delay after delay, the day is nigh. The NA release of Gran Turismo 4 is slated to be February 22 2005.

What else is there to say? I probably won't make another entry until this game completely drains me.

If any of you are debating purchasing the Logitech® Driving Force™ Pro, there should be no question after viewing this video of a Sauber C9 racecar in the S16 License Test around the Nordschleife. Ridiculoid.

Sweet Oranges

Sugar Bowl: Auburn 16 - Virginia Tech 13
It could have been worse. After all, the Hokies lost to a team that was supposed to be good enough to split the national title, right? It would have been a different story if Tech didn't have the dropped pass in the end zone and missed a key field goal.


Orange Bowl: USC 55 - Oklahoma 19
LMAO at all of those OU dickriders who thought that Oklahoma was the guaranteed victor. USC proved them wrong from the second drive on. I'm glad USC won, VT lost to the number one team in the country -barely.

Aaron Taylor should not be shown on national television. Dude is scary lookin' -relegate him to radio, please. Did anyone catch the awesome digital animation of Reggie Bush's "bone breaking speed" and "ankle breaking moves?" Pixar, be afraid, very afraid. What was with the halftime show? Mic check 1, 2, 3? Shouldn't you do that BEFORE you go live? What was up with all the backup dancers lookin' like the South Beach version of Polyphonic Spree.
