It was almost as thrilling as watching the New York Giants slay the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLII.
The Golden State Warriors took down the "Alleged" best team in the NBA tonight. With seconds left in a tie game Baron Davis hit a game winning fade away jump shot to give the Warriors an exciting 119-117 Victory over the 41 win Boston Celtics.
The Warriors bench and defense came through and played the type of game they had to play in order to beat this deep Boston team. Throughout the game most Warriors fans probably felt elated just to be hanging with the Boston Celtics. Not having Steven Jackson made for even a more improbable night to pull off a win. Yet the Warriors played four quarters of basketball and shined down the stretch to pull off the upset.
The Celtics were the first team I've seen use a defensive attack strategy on Monta Ellis. It almost worked. But Don Nelson adjusted by using a quicker offensive attack and catching the Celtics off guard.
The Warriors played a great team game with all contributing to this win. Pietrus, Biedrins and Harrington all stepped up big and Webber contributed a bit early.
But it was that final shot of Baron Davis that thrust the triumphant dagger to puncture the heart of the Green Monster of Boston. After swishing the shot, Baron elatedly skipped back down the court with .03 seconds left on the clock. He had this school boy type joy in his skip and the Oakland Arena fans wildly ate it up. Even the Boston players had to give it to Baron afterward. There's no doubt in Warrior-land that Baron plays all-star basketball for Golden State..
On an evening where a lunar eclipse shadowed over the Bay Area, the Golden State Warriors lit up the evening with an all-STAR team performance.

Sometimes I wonder just what this country of ours is coming to. If a person living 100 years ago was able to peek at today's news headlines they'd think Satan himself had taken over the country. They'd probably agree that Armageddon had arrived in year 2000 and the headlines are typical of daily activities in Hell. Actually it was the year that George Bush was elected as our 43rd President, mere coincidence. There's simply nothing else to explain the madness.
And here now the news:

How about an injection of illegal HDH steroid in the booty.
Nothing says I love you like a syringe filled dose of "THE JUICE" being pumped through her veins. That woman of your life will know not only that you love her but that you'll share with her your deepest secrets.
It didn't matter that the man who injected her has no hint of a medical degree, the fact that you'd have another man "JUICE" her up for you was enough to convince her of your trust and devotion to her. And why not talk about it on national television to rekindle the love.
So you still not sure what to get your girl for Valentine's Day? Roger Clemens Knows!
Friends don't let friends inject their wives with steroids, period.
HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY

No, Ocho Cinco hasn't been fitted for a Silver & Black jersey yet. But hearing it straight from his mouth that he'd like to be a Raider was enough to make any Raiders fan dream.
"Come Get Me, Says Ocho Cinco to Al Davis"
Though the cost involved would seem to make this fairytale trade a pipe dream, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Al Davis has just a tad bit of magic left in his negotiating bag of tricks to make it happen.
I know we need defensive players and O-lineman, but just imagine if you will a Chad Johnson / JaMarcus Russell connection. Where you at Oucho Cinco?

I hear they're still trying to come up with a nickname for Golden State Warriors guard/forward Monta Ellis. Look no further please. Since Monta first arrived and began showing hints of basketball stardom I've caught myself whispering the two words that best describe his play.
Tonight, along with the rest of the viewing public I'm sure, I caught myself yelling those same two words both during the Monta finger roll layup play and while watching it again on replay.
Monta has worked on and stepped up his game from a year ago and its only a matter of time before the rest of the league has to take notice. He's young and quick with good floor vision and a solid jump shot. Not to mention that he has defensive skills and leaping ability that has his 6'3 height working for him better than Manute Bol's 7'7in. frame ever did out on the hardwood floor.
So why is everyone finding it so hard to pin a nickname on Monta Ellis. Maybe they're all just trying too hard, after all this isn't the Los Angeles scene where a catchy name can put you into instant celebrity status. This is the Yay Yay where only proof of skill brings about celeb fame and nickname patents.
To be honest I think Monta Ellis has enough game where just the name Monta can evoke thoughts of great plays. But if you must name the budding star, just think of what it was you said when first seeing him fly through the air with the greatest of ease to lay down a dunk or finger roll over a suprised opponent. Remember yet! I remember what my thoughts were both the first time and the last.
You'd better get used to it. Because the Monta "OH MY!" Ellis show has arrived in the Bay, and if you miss it you'll only hear those who witnessed the new Warriors legend say: Did You See Monta Ellis last night, "Oh My!"
Monta had 34 pts, 9 rebounds and 5 assists tonight. "OH MY!"
Shooting 85% from the field in his last two games. "OH MY!"
Did I mention that Monta has unbelievable hangtime? "OH MY!"

I didn't know about the book deal until I saw a guy at the super bowl party wearing a black tee-shirt with prophetic white lettering that read: "18-1."
A Day after the New York Giants upset of the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLII, I attempt a online glance at the Boston Globe's book entitled "19-0: The Historic Championship Season of the New England Patriots." I'd heard they were still taking pre-orders for the book right up until the game ending whistle. Here's what I got when I clicked on the link:

Today is a day that'll live in football infamy. A riveting game and a most beautiful ending. The New York Giants smothered Patriots QB Tom Brady all game. Meanwhile, Giants QB Eli Manning became a football legend as he led his team to victory in a stunning 17-14 win over the fourteen point favored Pats.
Everyone loves an "UNDERDOG", and for one game an underdog made believers of a nation.
Congratulations New York Giants on your Super Bowl XLII Victory!
