KN - what was up with your Reds last night, against the Cards? That was THE worst defense I have ever seen...especially when the first baseman DROPPED that slooooooow throw from second and let the runner get on base. They gave up 7 runs in the 9th inning after being ahead by 6! Damn. I'm hatin' it for ya...'cause they're not even a bad team when it comes to fielding. Sigh.

I am very excited my arizona diamondbacks are having a fairly decent season so far this year. They have to at least make playoffs after the shitty season they had last year. But no matter what I still love my diamondbacks. I like all my Arizona teams including the Cardinals which is very sad. But the Suns are having a very very good season this year so yay for them also.

Yeah, they have Troy Glaus and Shawn Green now.

I'm an Angels fan, but I do like the Diamondbacks too.

Right on StevieFan other than in Arizona there aren't many people who like the d-backs. I dont mind the angels at all, out of all the California teams I like them the best. But my other 2 teams besides the d-backs are the devil rays(I know they kind of suck) and the red sox.

Well, today I have no voice and I'm still bouncing off the walls.

I went to the Sonics game last night and we won!!! Even though the refs did everything in their power to stop that from happening, bastards. You know, you can watch it on tv and think a call was bad, but when you see it right there in person you realize how RIDICULOUS alot of the calls are.

If I was a ref, around the third time the whole crowd starts cheering "BULLSHIT, BULLSHIT", I would check myself out of the game or shut the hell up. GRRRRRRRRRRR.

It came down to the last 2 seconds, we were 1 point ahead, it was the Spurs ball, they give it to Tim Duncan (oh no!!!) and he misses. I thought the roof was going to blow off that place.

My second favorite team in the NBA is the Spurs, well, mainly Tim Duncan (Parker and Ginobili are bitches). I love Tim Duncan and it's really hard to cheer against him.

I'll admit, we have a hard road ahead of us. The Spurs are easily the best team in the NBA. Hey, atleast they didn't sweep us!

Well I think they have one of the best baseball names in the league and I like their uniforms, and honsetly I kind of feel bad for them. They are in the same league as the Yankees and Red Sox. Thats just mean placement. No wonder the Yankees and Red Sox do so well each year I mean look who's in the American league. But thats ok because I like the Red Sox.

I totally and 100% agree with this statement. Except in my mind the Mariners are still an awesome team (even though they really haven't tried to back me up on that).

Uh, I'm done with basketball. I cant even belive how terrible the Suns played in this last series. That was pretty much the only team from Arizona with a decent chance at winning a champoinship. Arizona is one angry state right now with the Suns. But oh well.

Yeah, me too. The heartbreak is just too much for me this season.

I wish there was no championship, I wish everybody would lose. That's right, I said it!
