My favorite part of a basebrawl is when the old veterans pick a dance partner on the other team and hold each other so neither one has to fight.

All factors taken into account, the Lightning's win in Colorado last night was a noteworthy achievement.

After what happened in Game 2, going back to high altitude with long travel and a short recovery period, I thought they had no chance.

If the Lightning win again at home to force a Game 7, the Cup will be logging some serious travel miles.

Has the Cup ever had to travel farther than it did in 1994 during the Rangers - Canucks series?

I'm very glad to hear that New Hampshire ingenuity has found a use for the invasive green crab. At first I thought this had something to do with a much smaller species of crabs. Once those things become established, they are very difficult to get rid of. One recommended cure was to rub sand and alcohol on the affected area. The crabs would drink the alcohol, get drunk, and stone each other to death with the sand. The Navy-recommended cure was a quick trip to sick bay for a bit of the delousing salve.

At 11 years old, Olivia Moultrie was given a soccer scholarship by the University of North Carolina to play there after when she reached eligibility and then ditched that a few years later to sign an endorsement deal with Nike and turn pro. At 15 years old, Moultrie successfully sued the National Women's Soccer League over their eligibility rule (no one under 18) and then joined the Portland Thorns. Her first game was at 15 years old and then just the other night, at 16 years old, became the youngest player to score a goal in the NWSL. The kids are alright.

Meanwhile, my 12 year old is getting good at avoiding outdoor air, playing Roblox, playing Ginchen Impact, and watching Roblox Youtubers on her iPad.

Wiggins is one of the most talented 2 way players in the league. He'll always deliver great defense and near double digit rebounds but he's also a guy with a switch when it comes to offense. If he misses 3 or 4 early shots he'll stop shooting. If he hits early pretty much guaranteed 20 plus points and near 60 percent from the field.

He is the key on this team. He plays almost the entire game and always is matched up against the other teams' superstar player. Even scoring only 10 or 12 he takes a huge load off of others. Check the finals stats: top 5 in points, steals, rebounds, blocks, and minutes. Don't know if there is a more underrated NBA player.

Here's an interesting stat: Tatum is a career 0.456 shooter. In this series Wiggins has him at 0.373. Tatum was 0.462 against Miami.

Not too many people would have picked Wiggins to go out of his mind to help pick up Curry's slack. And Draymond finally looked like more of a contributor.

Curry will have better numbers in due course. But Klay looks like he needs pacing and load management. Loss of leg youthfulness, understandably so.

Both teams are capable of playing spurt quarters. I don't know whether I'd rather see 4 consecutive closely contested quarters or more spurt swapping. It would be good to have a two or three point outcome at some point.

A lot of folks expect the series to go 7 and want it to go 7. The commissioner certainly does.

In a noteworthy development the NFL has named "official wines". One would think it might be the vintages of former QB Drew Bledsoe's Doubleback Winery, but it is not. Some of you might remember the TV comedy/game show "Hollywood Squares" which featured as one of its regulars Cliff Arquette in his character of Charley Weaver. In one episode, Charley was asked, "What two brothers enabled mankind to fly?" His answer, "Ernest and Julio Gallo", and that is now the official wine brand of the NFL.

Do the foolhardy, witless Browns deserve an opportunity to void Deshaun Watson's contract on a personal conduct basis?

If they go further and discover that the Texans knew a lot about Watson's conduct before trading him*, do the Browns deserve the chance to void the trade and recover their draft capital?

*Assuming that the Browns are astute enough to make the discovery, which is assuming a lot.

As long as they're playing in Wolfville, would they consider putting the stadium in Truro instead. Just an hour north of Halifax and directly reachable from both sides of the harbor.

It would help pull in fans from NB, PEI, Cape Breton, perhaps some hardy folk from coastal Maine. Make the team more of a regional draw. Seems as though they would need region-wide numbers to make it go.
