Everything’s fine!! The sky is falling!!
It’s the best day ever!! The world is coming to an end!!
Some, live this reactionary life, riding the wave of EVERY moment. Some, would be REALLY DUMB!!
Remember when these collective group of morons thought the Cleveland Cavaliers wouldn’t represent the Eastern Conference??
Remember when they thought the Philadelphia 76ers could go to the NBA Finals??
Remember when they thought the New York Yankees were a disaster area, needing to be wiped off the face of the earth??
And remember when they were foolish enough to think the New York Mets could succeed, and stay healthy, and take back New York, and do anything remotely good, and make the playoffs??
LeBron, At The Buzzer!!
LeBron James continues to outdo himself, complimenting an already stellar career. His legacy, in his 15th season, is etched in stone. The only question is, how many times will it need to be upgraded or enhanced?? Saturday’s Game 3, 105-103 victory, over the Toronto Raptors didn’t hurt….
Nice double team Toronto!!
The LeBrons are now one game away from their 4th consecutive trip to the Eastern Conference Finals (LeBron’s 8th). I’m pretty sure he’ll handle his business. But I’m also sure there’s a moron running around telling people the LeBrons are about to blow a 3-0 series lead….
It’s time for a recent history lesson:
The Boston Celtics, aka Danny Ainge, traded out of the 1st overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft. They swapped picks with the Philadelphia 76ers (3rd pick) and stored away extra picks for Winter. The 76ers selected Markelle Fultz with the 1st pick. The Celtics selected Jayson Tatum with the 3rd pick. Fultz is watching his 76ers get pummeled, from the bench (after missing nearly the entire season due to injury). Tatum, on the other hand, is leading the Celtics to the Eastern Conference Finals.
Well played Danny Ainge, well played.
With the Cavaliers “struggling” in the 1st round, the 76ers became the sexy pick in the Eastern Conference. Sexy isn’t always the way to go. Personally, I’m a fan of sweatpants. The 76ers’ time will come, especially if LeBron lands in Philly next season, but that time, is not now.
The Yankees Forgot How To Lose
The future is bright for the Yankees. So is the present. Gleyber Torres has been the Yankees’ #1 prospect since landing in the Bronx via the Aroldis Chapman trade (2016). After being called up last month, Torres has wasted little time playing the part of hero. Torres hit his 1st MLB home run on Friday, May 4th. And just two days later, hit his 1st walk-off home run, helping the Yankees win their 6th straight game (15 of 16).
If only Torres was really young, with tremendous upside….
We Are Who We Thought We Were
You didn’t think the Mets were the Mets who started this season 11-1, did you?! I know you did, based on the amount of trash talk I, the Yankee fan, had to listen to throughout most of April. It’s oddly quiet now….
All we had to do was fast forward three weeks to turn a nine game winning streak into a six game losing streak. And to see Matt Harvey’s fat, lazy, ungrateful ass out the door. Even though delusional Mets’ fans didn’t want to release Harvey in fear he’d land on the Yankees, “figure it out”, and somehow destroy the Mets’ stellar reputation (HAHA!!), they needn’t worry. Harvey’s done, now and forever.
Like I said before the season, 81-and-81 would be a successful season for the Mets.
