I've been rooting for the Thunder/Grizzlies series to go 7 as a Mavericks fan. But I'm beginning to wonder if being off so long is a good idea.

Not if Boston's layoff before facing Heat is any indication.

I'm watching Yankees/Red Sox (waiting for hockey to start), word is Jorge Posada pulled himself from tonight's lineup, has spoken to Cashman, Yankees media relations, and will make a statement after the game.

Now they're claiming it's back stiffness, that just happened the night he was demoted to 9th in the batting order.

Posada's wife has his back:

Jorge loves being a Yankee > anything. He's trying his best to help his team win. Today, due to back stiffness he wasn't able to do that.

Yankees probably should have jettisoned both Jeter and Posada this year. They have a solid roster otherwise and these 2 are more distractions than contributors.

Scott Fujita has a tattoo.

Manchester City won their first major trophy for 35 years, just hours after Manchester United clinched their 19th League title.

Who schedules these things?

I am translating this to Posada just had what we call around these parts his Nomar moment
