We are a little delayed in getting today's post up, but an 8:40 tip for the Jazz playoff game last night didn't exactly help me get out of bed this morning. Remember to check back this afternoon for the Moron of the Week. Any who... onto today's headlines.


-Oh man! What a game last night at the EnergySolutions Arena! The Jazz fought back from 13 down in the 3rd quarter to win game 3, 88-86 over the Lakers. The ESA was rockin' last night, and the two teams did not disappoint. Can't wait to hit up game 4 tomorrow night!

-Elsewhere around the Association, Dallas pounded the Spurs 88-67. San Antonio Coach, Greg Popovich pulled his starters halfway through the 3rd quarter, and after the game instead of yelling and screaming, took the team out to dinner.

-In Chicago, the Celtics blasted the Bulls 107-86. Rajon Rondo led Boston with 20 points, 11 rebounds, 6 assists, and 5 steals. Talk about filling out the box score. Chicago shot just 38% in the game from the floor.


-Comedian Jay Leno has canceled tapings of the Tonight Show for the first time in his 17 years on the job. Leno checked himself into a California hospital for an undisclosed illness. According to reports Leno is doing well, and should be out of the hospital soon.

-British singing sensation Susan Boyle apparently has gotten a makeover. After appearing on Britain's Got Talent and becoming an internet sensation nearly overnight, Boyle has decided to clean it up. Good for her. Hopefully the peeps in England will still give her the respect she deserves for her talents.


-The US Treasury announced today that it has given General Motors $2 billion more in bailout money. The Treasury said that this will give the company some working capital. Uh... you think?

-Hmmm... what to use for the middle name of your child? How about Bear? Apparently a Colorado woman is going to use Bear as the middle name for her unborn boy or girl after she was chased by a furry fella in the hills outside of Colorado Springs. Oh don't worry, the story gets better. While she was running away from the bear she was hit by a slow moving car. Although she was taken to the hospital for evaluation it appears that both she and the baby are doing fine.

The Links

-Kami C. (yes that would be my wife) sent along a couple of links for us today. First the story about former Angels (and Orem Owlz FYI) pitcher Darren O'Day pitching for the Rangers as someone else. Truly an equipment managers nightmare by the way.

-Second she sends along a Fox News story about a 12 year old New Jersey girl who threw a perfect game. The young lady is one of only 2 girls to play in this league, and is the first to accomplish the feat.
