The Sports Round-up for Round-Eyes, Slant-Eyes, and Everyone In-Between


1. RIP, David Halberstam
Writer/historian David Halberstam was killed in a car accident yesterday in Northern California. Our deepest condolences go out to his family. I’m going to miss Halberstam’s wholly original take on sports, his dismissiveness of cliches and accepted truths when it came to superstar athletes, and the cranky, contrarian humanity he brought to watching the game.

2. 2 IS FOR 2-0
The Houston Rockets took a 2-0 lead over the Utah Jazz in their first-round playoff series.

“In your face, Boozer! I’m sorry, your name is Boozer? I was named after a King. Booyao!

3. Yin and Yang Get It Up the Yinyang Courtesy of the Phoenix Suns

“Bryant Fades As Suns Take Down Lakers”–WHAT?!? SHOCKER! LIES!! STOP HATING ON KOBE!!!

Game 2 tipoff is at 7:30 pm on TNT.

4. 4 Is the Magic Number
History was made Sunday at Fenway when the Red Sox beat the Yankees 7-6, sweeping the series. It was not Daisuke “Sir Dice-A-Lot” Matsuzaka’s best outing, but he was bailed out by teammates Manny Ramirez, J.D. Drew, Mike Lowell, and Jason Varitek, who all homered one after the other in the 3rd.

4 CONSECUTIVE HOMERS off ONE PITCHER–that’s happened one other time in MLB history. Some mathletes have calculated there’s a 1 in 1.4 million chance of us seeing it again. Chase Wright, the Yanks pitcher who got rocked, was sent down to the minors the very next day. Nice knowing ya!

5. One To Watch
This past weekend, 18 year-old, Chinese-American tennis player Vania King clinched a spot for the U.S. in the Fed Cup semis, subbing for an injured Serena Williams. Go Vania! Kick ass and take names!
