NHL Update:

  • Shattenkirk and his mates are only too willing to oblige the busy Pens (thank you Sid, may I have another!), who once again write Washington’s playoff obituary in very Capital letters.
  • Today’s game was a real beauty pageant for JG Pageau, who collects hockey’s Le Grand Slam in Ottawa’s stunning win over the now-endangered Rangers. #Rangers #Senators

MLB Update:

  • Ivan the terribly good comes through once again, and we’re almost back to see level…#Pirates #Marlins
  • Good times for the Chisox as Abreu chimes in with two big bangs; look who’s now in first in the AL Central. #WhiteSox #Tigers
  • Conforto makes life for the Nationals at home aboard the USS Strasburg very uncomfortable. #Nationals #Mets
  • Gardner takes out a hard contract on some very defenseless Oriole pitching, and the rest of the Yankee hit men join in for fun. #Yankees #Orioles
  • Perhaps some progress has been made, but Wright still isn’t right, and Sox knuckle under to the stubborn Cubbies. #RedSox #Cubs

NBA Update:

  • Instead of being even Steven after 6, this series is a done deal in favor of the C’s after Boston works the Stevens spread (5 behind the arc) to near perfection. #Celtics #Bulls
  • Wall may be small, but keeping him in your sights (particularly when he’s behind) is quite a tall order; just ask disappointed Dennis. #Wizards #Hawks
  • Yes the Clippers have a checkered playoff history, but they are still proud, and if want to put them away you had better give them an ice pick through the heart.  Utah made way too many turnovers, and made a big mistake by not calling timeout for the final, 3-point shot.  They’ll need way more poise and precision to win a game 7 in LA. #Clippers #Jazz

MLB Update:

  • With all the gopher balls being launched, the hitters on both teams were singing “I’m alright”; could the Yankees be this year’s tears-in-their eyes, Cinderella story? #Yankees #Orioles
  • Mets finally edge somebody, after ditching Jeurys and applying Edgin. #Mets #Nationals
  • Bucs offense finally comes unstuck, with the hitting clinic led by free swinger Francisco. #Pirates #Marlins
  • Indian bats are arrested and confined for a night when Mariners read them their Miranda rights. #Mariners #Indians
  • Nobody mistook the mistake-prone pitcher for the real Arrieta; at least the Cubs hope today’s starter was a fake Jake. #Cubs #RedSox

NBA Update:

  • Spurs do the rational thing and kill off the Grizzlies in 6; Parker had better get his rest, because Patrick Beverley is licking his chops, and it’s a good thing for SA’s old bones that they have the weekend to recuperate. #Spurs #Grizzlies
  • Milwaukee falls into the notorious deep hole trap, falling just short of the finish line with a furious rally that nearly takes down the Raptors. #Raptors #Bucks

MLB Update:

  • Yankees need a hero, and Masahiro fills the bill very nicely, thank you…. #RedSox #Yankees
  • Blue Jays lose their way in the Gateway. #Cardinals #BlueJays
  • Washington’s Nats pull out a very convenience 11 in the 7th, when baseballs thrown by Rockies’ pitchers come across the plate like cantaloupes. #Nationals #Rockies
  • Injury bug continues to raid the Mets’ lineup with ruthless impunity. #Mets #Braves

LFL Preview: Temptation gear up for May 12 home opener against Omaha …

The 2017 season kicks off for the Los Angeles Temptation with a home game at Citizens Bank arena on May 12 against the Omaha Heart. After what happened last year, Coach Tui knows there isn’t much room for error and will have his team ready to go.

There’s lots of excitement surround the offense, with Ashley Salerno back as starting QB. Tui commented, “She’s experienced and truly a talented, multi-threat option with her ability to hurt defenses through the air and on the ground. I’ll enjoy watching her lead this team down the field.” Alongside Salerno in the backfield will be running back Carmen Bourseau, who did not play last year due to an injury. Bourseau is a power back and will be complimented nicely by speedy Nas Johnson. At receiver, LA will start sure-handed Cynthia Schmidt, along with Delaney Hall (both starters from last year), and the offensive line will be anchored by Sherri Awagah and Kiana Takairangi at guards and rookie Rose Saenz at center.

On defense, things look very solid with two experienced corners, Ogom Chijindu and Chelsey Haardt. Tui remarked, “I sleep well at night knowing they are on patrol. Look for Chelsey to come roaring back after recovering from last year’s injury.” With the retirement of Hall of Fame linebacker Monique Gaxiola, the middle of the field will be guarded by Megan Hanson, who played center last year. Tui notes that Hanson is a versatile, capable athlete and should be able to adjust to her new defensive responsibilities. At defensive end, Naja Christmas will be hard to stop, and as for the other spot on the d-line, Tui indicated that slot is still up for grabs. Finally, the safeties will be returning starter Lili Granston, as well as former starter Danielle Harvey (back from injury).

Tui is cautiously optimistic about his team’s prospects, noting “We know there is little margin for error with 4 games, and we’ll be ready on May 12.  I certainly beleive 4-0/playoffs is a very doable proposition.”

Don’t miss any of the action at Citizens Bank arena, as Omaha comes to town on May 12 and Pittsburgh visits on July 8!

NBA Update, Recap and Perspectives: Tuesday, 4-25

NBA Update:

  • SA gets a needed spark from Patty and Parker, but they’d be well-advised to finish the spunky Grizzlies off in Game 6, as round 1 was not supposed to be this much of a tussle. Grizzlies can take heart that they were in this game for the long haul, and when they get back to the Grindhouse they’ll be ready to really brawl. #Grizzlies #Spurs
  • A not very bubbly Westbrook runs outta gas in the 4th, and surprise surprise Rockets barely digest the near triple double. With a highly effective Lou Williams and the multi-functional Patrick Beverly, this Houston team has more character and weapons than last year’s group and should give the Spurs a real run for their money. #Thunder #Rockets
  • Slightly Cinderella Jazz wear the magic slippers against the klutzy Clippers. Utah softens LAC up with a steady dose of Gordo, George and Gobert and then goes for the jugular with the silent killer on the road, Joe Johnson. #Jazz #Clippers

MLB Update:

  • Giant pincushions hit with another case of the blahs after Kershaw pins the loss on Blach. #Dodgers #Giants
  • Tigers feast on Mariner foodstuffs for 24 hits, and look so very comfortable in the confines of Comerica. #Tigers #Mariners
  • Rays use the revolving door technique to confound the perplexed O’s from the mound. #Orioles #Rays
  • Pittsburgh’s lack of punch must really be taking a toll on a near perfect Cole; stylin Kyle Hendricks makes the Pirate batters look positively sick. #PIrates #Cubs
  • Houston’s still on a tear, and a confident Dallas has nothing to fear. #Astros #Indians

MLB Update:

  • Cubs send Kuhl and the rest of the Pirate gang to the cooler for a bit … without even a ball or a baseball mitt. #Cubs #Pirates
  • Could the Brewers actually end up jolly winners, what with Thames looking so good he’s just teeing off on the ball non-stop. #Brewers #Reds
  • Archer should’ve put more starch in his curveball; the ones he threw were too easily arched over the fence. #Baltimore #Rays
  • As weak as they’ve been or may be in the future, the Giants can still be counted on to be a particularly painful thorn in the side of the Dodgers. #Giants #Dodgers
  • Did the Rockies sneak up on everyone with their nearly impenetrable pen? If this pitching holds up, the rest of the league may be in for a very rude awakening. #Rockies #Nationals

NBA Update:

  • Toronto yells “Cheers” to heretofore unassuming Norm, and Kidd yells for Engelbert to sing him to sleep “after the drubbing”. #Bucks #Raptors
  • Too bad the Blazers don’t still play in the Rose Garden; tonight, in their next home, they were clearly Men Without Love from the basketball gods. #Trailblazers #Warriors
  • If you took offense to the way the washed up Wizards played defense tonight, you were completely excused from Washing your mouth out. #Wizards #Hawks
  • Please release me from Westbrook’s overprotective outburst.  Yeah, Russ, you’re are definitely right there’s no “i” in team, but don’t forget there also an i in idiot. #Warriors #Rockets

NBA Update:

  • Clipper fortitude and grit turns to @#$%#$ as Crawford jacks up a bunch of hope/panic shots in crunchtime, and the old, reliable Chris Paul crutch breaks down; meanwhile, Joe Johnson gives Utah more than a puncher’s chance of taking the air out of Ballmer’s ballers. #Clippers #Jazz
  • Don’t bank on Chicago making it to the promised land with Canaan, as a replacement for Rondo. On the other hand, with their confidence back the Celtics seem to believe in their changes with the prophet Isaiah. #Celtics #Bulls
  • Does Billy D. remember how to coach, let alone design plays? There is no way Houston should have been as close as it was at halftime, and the OKC offense continues to provide a lovely platform for Westy’s bloated personal stats, but does nothing but encourage his entourage to be nothing more than helpless dependents. The Rockets are now set up for a 5-game series win, and some needed rest, in advance of taking on the winner of Mephis-SA. #Rockets #Spurs
  • Pacers are a totaled disappointment yet again, as Paul George gets his wish for the last shot… right after he almost commits the game’s last turnover. This is a team with some great parts, but without a big toe, which is of course a fatal flaw. #Cavaliers #Pacers
