The NBA Draft Hurts My Brain

I don't even know what to make of the NBA Draft last night. My Grizzlies took Thabeet over Rubio (D'OH!) and screwed themselves out of a ton of jersey sales. The Timberwolves ended up landing the Spanish sensation and a few other guards (Isiah Thomas was clearly behind this). Brandon Jennings made a late appearance and David Stern gave him an awkward introduction. The Suns took the crappier brother again (last year it was Robin Lopez). It was an interesting night to say the least.

Today I'm going to leave you with another nice OJ Mayo mix. Enjoy!

Source: ESPN Has A Favre Storyline Generator

The Brett Favre story is dead to me. ESPN reported on Monday that the Vikings imposed a deadline for Favre to make a decision if he is going to join the team by the end of the week. Brad Childress says that ESPN's sourcing is very questionable. Apparently, ESPN has just been making stuff up as they go along.

When he makes his decision let me know. Until then, you can get back to your precious Yankees coverage.

This Sandwich Was Made With Love But Would Have Been Better With Mayo

Right now I am watching the NBA Finals and The Lakers are starting to run away with the game. As much as I like the NBA Finals, I am more excited for the NBA Draft. It's not far away and the Grizzlies have the second pick (I know you are getting tired of hearing about this). At last year's draft the Grizzlies got OJ Mayo in a trade which sent Kevin Love to the Timberwolves.

As most of you know, I enjoy watching highlight mixes on YouTube. Game 1 of the NBA Finals hasn't held my attention as much as I had hoped so I have had plenty of time to look for some new mixes. I came across a really good OJ Mayo mix which is the reason I am writing this. If you are also finding it hard to watch the blowout that is going on right now, check out the mix below.

The Metrodome Needs to Go

The Minnesota Twins are building a new stadium, Target Field, and it can't come soon enough. Living in Grand Forks, we're in kind of a dead zone as the closest MLB outdoor stadium is 10 hours away. I recently attended a few games this past week of Twins vs. Red Sox, and the Metrodome just isn't a suitable baseball stadium. While the "Dome" has been the site of many great moments, baseball is meant to be played outdoors, the experience is greatly heightened with the smell of fresh cut grass and slight breeze. Target Field is going to quickly make people realize what they've been missing for the past three decades. Many people will be upset when a game gets rained out or when it's 40º and snowing out, but I'll gladly trade a few rain outs for a summer full of great baseball outside.

While I've only seen a couple outdoor games including Miller Park and City of Palms Park, I plan on crossing a few more off the list this summer attending games at Kauffman Stadium (which I've heard is fantastic) and Busch Stadium. The thought of a game when 80º and the home team is rallying in the 9th with a beer in hand makes me want to drive to a game today!
