Today’s SPORTS has us talking the end of the Blues season, the Cardinals in Houston, the Derby, Money Mayweather and his entourage and a CRAZY bitch taking the court in the NBA. Check it all out with VIDEO and PHOTOS
The Blues looked to extended their playoff hopes yesterday going into game 4 in L.A down 3 games to none…and it was pretty much the same game that has happened three times before…the Blues were outplayed by the Kings and were eliminated. The Kings netted an empty netter late in the third and got the 3-1 and will not wait to see if they’ll take on Phoenix or Nashville in the next round. In the late game, New Jersey beat the Flyers 4-2 yesterday and take a 3-1 lead in their series. Tonight the Rangers take on the Capitals for game 5 with their series tied at 2 games a piece and the Coytoes look to eliminate the Predators as they are up in that series 3 games to 1.
After losing the first two games to Houston on the road, the Cardinals avoided the sweep yesterday with a big 8-1 win against the Astros. Tyler Greene hit two home runs and a double to help get Adam Wainwright the win. The team now travels to Arizona for a series against the Diamondbacks. First pitch is scheduled for 8:40…Lance Lynn takes the mound for the Cards looking for his 6th win of the year.
Other baseball news…Albert Pujols hadn’t hit a regular season home run in 33 games and 139 at bats dating back to last year. On Friday – Pujols heard boos from the fans in L.A., on Saturday he sat on the bench…but yesterday it finally happened. Albert hit his first homerun of the year and helped the Angels get the 4-3 win over Toronto. After the game Pujols said, “I don’t think anything has been lifted off my shoulders. I don’t think about what you guys write. I know what I’m capable of doing, and I come out here everyday and give 110%. If I do that, I have nothing to be sorry about.”
Floyd “Money” Mayweather rolls deep. Most of the time a boxer’s entourage is filled with his people, maybe an occasional rapper or close celebrity friend…but for Mayweather…his entourage was loaded. It included 50 Cent, Lil Wayne…and Justin Beiber?! Yeah – the Biebs. He even carried the belt for Mayweather to the ring for him. . Apparently WWE’s Triple H was there too but we didn’t see him in any pictures. Mayweather beat Miguel Cotto by unanimous decision on Saturday to remain undefeated.
The horse, I’ll Have Another, won the 138th Kentucky Derby on Saturday. In second place was Derby favorite Bodemeister and third was Dullahan. I’ll Have Another held 15-1 odds and because the first horse to win in the #19 post position. For a chance at the Triple Crown, the next race is the Preakness which is on May 19th.
This is hilarious…a woman during the Lakers and Nuggets last night had quite the interruption. In the middle of play, a woman, who appears HELLA drunk walked onto the court and stumbled around a bit. Play was stopped and security grabbed her and asked “Where is Kenyon Martin?!” The escorted her away and she was arrested…and if you are wondering…Kenyon Martin plays for the Clippers. The woman, was charged with trespassing and apparently has a history of stalking Denver Nuggets players…Check it out …
