Gibberish: Episose IV

Lots going on today as the U.S. Open is yet to be decided since Retief Goosen has went through a slide of mammoth proportions and Tiger just bogeyed to give Michael Campbell (who?) a nervous 3-stroke lead.

-- Meanwhile Formula One just set open-wheel auto racing back 100 years in America with its debacle at the U.S. Grand Prix. As a fan of racing that doesn't sound like "NASCAR" this is greatly disappointing.

-- Campbell just parred the very tough 15 to keep his three stroke lead. I think Even-Par will win this so Tiger has much work to do.

-- Bad, horrible, disasterous three-put for Tiger on 17. That's back-to-back bogeys and all of a sudden Campbell just has to survive a test at 16, and not drop anymore shots. Tiger must birdie on 18 to have a small prayer. Not sure what the rest of the leaderboard looks like.

-- Campbell survived 16 with just a bogey and has a potential birdie or two-putt at worse situation on 17. So he'll be up by two going into 18. If he birdies 17 it's over, if he two-putts this, things will be fun.

-- He birdied 17. Game over.

-- Now with that finished I'll try to work my way through a couple hours of the *ping* before the basketball game starts...I don't watch college baseball, I don't follow it and as long as the Gators don't win, I'm happy.

-- Young baseball players in general look like assholes don't they? Those cocky smirks and struts as if to say "look at me, I'm wearing pants three sizes too small."

-- And right away the leadoff batter for Florida his an aluminum-aided missle down the first base line and the second hole check swings a 420-foot homer.

-- Florida 7, Nebraska 4 is your *ping* score as we move to the Game.

-- Duncan scores right away and Parker follows with a jumper for a 4-0 Spurs lead. Me thinks they ran those two plays to send a message.

-- As quickly as the Spurs started, they have faded, allowing Detroit to go on a 13-2 run. Way to show that heart boys.

-- But just like that the Spurs score five straight at trim the lead to 13-11.

-- So far so good at 24-all. The Pistons have led a couple of times but the Spurs fight back. I believe Bowen hit a big 3-pointer to give Spurs a 27-24 advantage. Nice ball movement.

-- Spurs have extended said lead to 31-26 before Richard Hamilton sank a runner while being hacked.

-- Brent Barry finally drains an open shot. Haven't seen much of him since the early portions of the Phoenix series. Duncan adds a bucket and the Spurs have built a 9-point lead in short time.

-- Every time one team took a bit of an advantage the other side came roaring right back so it makes sense for the score to be tied at 42. So the advantage goes to the Pistons who won the final 3 minutes of the second period and got the crowd back into things with the spurt.

-- The Pistons didn't take charge early and trail by seven again. Duncan is having a big game so far and the Spurs are grabbing every 50/50 rebound.

-- Now this is the game we've been expecing, tied at 61 and both teams playing with serious intensity through several ebbs and flows. I think I'm going to come and say that the winner of this game will win the series. Both teams have too much emotional tied up in this game right now. The loser will be devastated.

-- Stop...Drop...Pop....Gotta love Big Shot Bob.

-- On a grading scale this game is approaching A- status. A few too many turnovers, but otherwise quality stuff from these two teams.

-- Tayshaun....where ya been?

-- And was that...emotion coming from Duncan?? Hell yeah!! Unfortunately he followed it with an awful free throw.

-- Bombs away for Big Shot Bob and we're tied again at 79.

-- Yay extra basketball!!

-- BIG SHOT BOB~! Oh my, whadda slam!...Uggh he jacked up his shoulder in the process.

-- What a game, surpassed A-, straight the A column and a buzzer beater gets us an A+...

-- BIG SHOT BOB~! He does it again!
