I didn't watch the game, but after checking in prior to the half, I was thinking that just maybe it goes to 7 (they were up by quite a bit when I first checked in)... and then as they came up on the half, Clips cut it to 4 or 5 of something and the announcers were going crazy.

I thought the Jazz were gonna be powerhouses this year... but they fizzled out against a crippled Kawhi-less Clips in an empty LA Stadium. LOL
not sure what happened there, but they can't let Playoff P do that to them, not like that.

I also thought ATL was about to shut down Philly yesterday with a late rally (I wasn't watching, but listening on the radio on and off), but apparently that never happened.

So the East goes to game 7's... who sees the Bucks pulling this off?
Giannis really needs to work on a post up game and a shot, but if Harden is still hobbled, I really can't see Durant carrying a whole team w/o someone someone else also at the very least being a threat and taking some heat off him. He just might play all 48 again tonight, but I don't know if he can pull it off by himself.

The West is settled and WCF starts on Sunday.
What's the word on CP3?
- COVID protocols in effect for how long? did he actually come down with Covid and may miss the entire WCF?

and speaking on Western Conference Finals.... here's an interesting fact!!
Did you know that the Milwaukee Bucks and the Chicago Bulls have more WCF appearances than the LA Clippers!!?

I had this post typed up before I left, and forgot to hit send.... (around 6pm pst)

People always forget that being vaccinated doesn't mean you can't get and spread COVID, mostly what it's good for is protecting you from getting deathly ill from it.

But hopefully CP3 is good to go in a few days, as the Nets gonna need some competition.

-----
I don't know how the Clips beat the Jazz tonight. But hopefully they able to keep it up if the Jazz don't want to move on. Suns are waiting.

WTF CP3!!?

This was his year. His best shot so far. Suns absolutely on fire and everyone else dealing with injuries.... Just had to self sabotage instead of getting injured....
I guess we wait and see how long he's out for, but I need the best possible team to beat the Nets in the Finals.

Durant put on a show in the second half yesterday, which I mostly missed (only watched the first half), and I'm surprised because I wasn't sure if he could lead and create for the entire team, but he pulled it off.

I went to the Bay to watch the end of the Hawks, and watch the Jazz ... I left at halftime. And honestly, if it wasn't for the bar tender, I would've left after the 1st Qtr.

That poster dunk by Kawhi tho 🤯

So I had the KFC Chicken Sandy and even though the sandwich itself was pretty good, I immediately recalled what I hate about KFC to begin with....

I'm at the window and the dude hands me a bag where half the bottom is soaked in grease.... I didn't want to set it on the wrong thing and get grease stains. Wasn't sure if it was the fries or the chicken, but either way that's an immediate warning sign to my arteries. LOL

So I got the spicy chicken, and it was just some spicy sauce that was on about half the chicken... so really, I got the Spicy and Regular Chicken Sandwich at the same time. No need to go back. LOL
It was a thick piece of chicken, never dry at KFC, and no crunch to the skin (for the same reasons it's never dry -see the bag-). It wasn't actually greasy or anything, that I could tell, but it was mostly in it's sandwich sleeve , so I don't know how greasy it might've been. It was good on flavor though.

Current Order of Preference:

Zack Snyder’s Justice League

It’s better than Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice if that holds any weight. Unfortunately, Justice League never overcomes one of the main problems with its predecessor: most of it remains unearned.

Justice League is full of nonsense. For example, terrorists have no demands and simply want to blow up a building and the hostages yet put a timer on their bomb. Wonder Woman uses her bracelet clash when she’s fast enough to disarm the shooter. The scene where that town woman sing after Aquaman jumps into the water was hilarious even though it clearly wasn’t mean to.

I don’t want to write a long post as no one reads those, and it’s largely unnecessary anyway. Justice League suffers from the same problems as Snyder’s previous DCEU movies from lacking a basic understanding of the characters to the ridiculous use of Instagram filters.

short but sweet (talking about your review, not the movie). Better than the theatrical version, but still not a good movie.
lots of setup for something that barely makes more sense than the previous version with extra characters thrown in as easter egg teasers for a sequel that ain't gonna happen.

So I've tried some of these chicken sandwiches for the War that Popeye's apparently started.

McDonald's..... Giant McChicken patty. If you love McChicken, you'll probably like this, but if you're looking for a real chicken Sandwich, this wasn't it.

Burger King Ch'King.... Not bad, but not great. I didn't get the spicy, and I should've. I'm sure that would've been better, but the regular one didn't entice me to try again. Popeye's is only another minute out two down the road.

Popeye's.... Still King.

Next up... KFC
And as soon as they open up the Chick FilA next to my, I might try that one too.

Taco Bell - Naked Chicken Chalupa (as close as they'll get).
Not bad, but immediately regretted it, as I haven't had taco bell in ages. It might be a while before I go back there again.

Had some from some chicken sandwiches from regular restaurants that were also really good, but as far as fast food goes, Popeye's still on top so far.

New teaser is out for Space Jam:  A New Legacy

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pRInjhFOKqQ


This is going to be so fun and I love how the teaser isn't taking itself seriously. All tongue in cheek.
 

As an aside what is the matter with youtube embeds on here? Not working like it used to.

That actually got a few laughs out of me.

I think you missed the point of a joke....  regardless of the facts of what's going on or how it works, the joke was that Adam Silver, the corporate face of the NBA is sweating because his big ticket in viewership teams have mostly been exited from the playoffs.

I appreciate the deep dive into the details of how everything works, but it wasn't needed to address a joke about potential viewership and network favortism. It was some interesting info... still doesn't take away from the joke though.


switching topics though... I meant to drop my vote tonight, and it completely contradicts my hopes for the outcome. But I was gonna predict Nets for game 1.... and then James Harden went out with a hamstring injury...  I thought if the Bucks were gonna steal home court, this was the time.
I really want Giannis to take this series... but I'm just not so sure, the Nets are potentially too much to handle, but not impossible to get by if you can shut down their role players and make the stars work extra hard for it.

I was just coming in here to say that the Clips are taking it back to LA to lose infront of the home crowd.

Neither of these teams go the distance. It's not even a matchup thing as some would expect, I just think neither team has that killer instinct to get it done.

What home crowd in LA? From what I saw in Game 5, the Clippers have so few fans that they had to place cardboard cutouts in the Staples Center stands to make the Clippers feel better.  ;)

(Yes, I know why those are actually there, but I find it amusing that those cutouts weren't in the stands in last night's Lakers game)



apparently crowd was the wrong word. LOL

the Home gathering of friends and family....?

Now we just need the Mavs to finish the Clips, and we will be on to our lowest rated playoff in probably the last decade. Adam Silver must be sweating 🤣🤣🤣
I feel like I’m missing the joke here. Why do we want low ratings/why does this matter? Did Adam Silver take someone’s mother out for a nice seafood dinner and never called her again?

The only teams I'm still rooting against that's left in the playoff are the Clips and the Nets.
Everyone else, I'm happy to see shine, and looking forward to seeing who comes out on top, especially if it's at the expense of The Nets.
Looking at Suns or Jazz v the Bucks... that would be ideal.

as for the low rating joke and Adam Silver... I think it was covered sufficiently already, but the league thrives on the TV contracts, and if the only team left (after tonight) that gets a national tv buy for regular ass games is the Nets, then the networks may be nervous about getting their money back in viewership which may affect the next round of negotiations... therefore Adam Silver must be sweating knowing that the golden ticket Lakers are out in the first round.... the Warriors got Play'd-out in the Play-in (as I'm sure wasn't expected*), the Knicks blipped into the wrong reality for a brief moment (and then snapped back out), the Clips about to join the Lakergirls in having no one to root for this off-season, and all that's left are the Nets.

This is the first play-off in over a decade that will not have Steph and/or Lebron in finals.
and * Warriors season ending run, if I read correctly, was the highest TV draw for the whole season so far. For Adam Silver... this isn't going as planned.
For me, I like the drama, and even though I would have loved to see Steph's run continue, I have no doubt Warriors would've got bounced in the first round regardless of if it was Suns or Jazz.

I'm hoping the smaller markets get their spotlight, but there's no doubt viewership will be down as almost all the larger market teams have already been eliminated. So unless something crazy is happening, like Dame going into double OT, most people are passively watching at best.

Everyone loves to "hate" watch Lebron in hopes he loses, and everyone loves to watch Steph just make crazy shots. you have them both in playoffs and that equals guaranteed ratings.
We eliminate them and you lose alot of the passive watchers and the big market fans too. that's just the reality.

Doctor Strange and teh Multiverse of Maddness wrapped filming.

cast and crew were given a gift: Potential Character spoiler....? but we already knew about that character. I'll not post the actual pic just incase.

Don't forget, the dad had to stop the van and either back up or circle back to pick up his 10 year old son after running him over with the van when he fell out after being shot with a real gun.

Lots to ponder about here.

and it was the mom who called 911 after she saw her baby daddy and bullet wounded 10yr old son show back up at the house.

I hope she files for sole custody. smh.

One more thing. Enjoy this Tweet.

Gave me chills 🤣

Now we just need the Mavs to finish the Clips, and we will be on to our lowest rated playoff in probably the last decade. Adam Silver must be sweating 🤣🤣🤣

That Jazz v Suns conference final gonna be fun too

Who's idea was it for AD to play with a groin strain 2-3 days later?
Is he looking for a more serious injury just because the season is on the line?

He certainly shouldn't have been trying too hard to defend, but really there's no way he was ready to come back yet... 1-2 weeks minimum for a groin strain right?

I wonder if LBJ convinced him to get out there on the floor or join the garbage bin as he gets traded for Giannis or Zion or something. LOL
