Most exciting match-up in the NBA
Is anyone else excited for the game tonight? My balls are twittering...
If not for the game 3 shitfest, this would be the most consistently awesome series of all time. Every game has come down to the last second, even in OT. Both teams have cold blooded killers (Allen, Gordon), and young emerging stars (Rose, Rondo) along with compelling storylines (Garnett, Rondo averaging a triple double, Thomas and Noah coming into their own).
The series is tied 2-2 and we'll need to win a game in Boston to get to the second round. I don't love our chances in game 7 at the garden (their fans are ferocious) so our best bet is winning tonight and then closing it out at home - taking 3 in a row from the defending champs.
I'll be live twittering during the game (www.twitter.com/luolsdong) and should entertain you all with meaningful insight and important observations.
Around the Horn:
-Lance Briggs pulls a Derrick Rose (here)
-Joe Noah earning some much deserved respect around the league. Great article on his generalawesomeness and how everyone hates him (here)
-Ben Gordon says fuck you JoBu (here)
-Iglesias likes the Bears, the Bears like Iglesias (here)

-If you like weird videos, this kid with no arms or legs just (shockingly) lost his first MMA fight (here)
