Yeah, the Devils won the Stanley Cup, (ho hum, I refuse to acknowledge a Stanley Cup Final which lacks the requiste Canadian team). Serena cried on international TV, again. Sosa got busted. The Nets beat the Spurs, 77-76, in Game 4.

Who cares, frankly, I haven't given a rats behind about professional basketball since Larry Bird retired. The real news, hee hee, the Windies are winning. The boys in maroon, hideous I know, are showing spirit. Hallelujah, hosanas, etc. Okay, so they seem to only have a knack for the final flourish; and it would be nice if they actually won a series for a change, but I'll take whatever they can muster at this point.

Sri Lanka in West Indies, 2003, 3rd One-Day International
Arnos Vale Ground, Kingstown, St Vincent
11 June 2003 (50-over match)

Result: West Indies won by 6 wickets (D/L Method, rain)
Series: Sri Lanka wins the 3-ODI series 2-1

In further Windies news, Wes Hall is calling it quits. Pleading ill health, the 65 year old has announced that he won't be seeking re-election to the Presidency of the West Indies Cricket Board. The new head will be chosen during the Board's annual meeting slated for July 12-13 in Dominica.

Mark my words, no good will come of this. Suprised? I acknowledge that I may have, in a recent post, cast certain aspersions as to the esteemed gentleman's mental health; but you know what they say, "Better the devil you know then the devil you don’t."
