Here is your open thread for this lovely evening. The ESPN Sunday Night game is the Cardinals at the Reds (Lynn vs. Arroyo), plus Game Two of the NBA Finals is on. Talk about either game or anything else on your mind right here. Have at it.

Thunder walk-off with a win on Austin's double
Stewart's late-inning hit gives Yankees 2-1 win over Mariners in series finale

    Hmmm, open thread appears before the game is over and the game thread is on!

    • trr

      Hmmmm. Maybe Mike’s got a date w/Meredith M.

    • DC

      Cashman failed.

      • I’mVernonI’mVernon4U

        I have no idea why I find this phrase so funny. But every time I see it on here, I laugh.

  • Eddard

    I’ve got four words for you – BGDP.

    Now our focus shifts to Pop and Duncan putting the Heat in dire straights. Those two deserve one more ring to ride off into the sunset.

    • forensic

      I believe that would be four letters…

  • Brandon Mauk

    No PH for Brignac? Really, Joe?

    • Dr. TJ Eckleberg

      I personally loved having Nix sac bunt Ichiro over so Brignac could have a crack at a base hit and drive him in. WTF Joe, I know Nix isn’t great, but Brignac is oh so much worse. There’s no chance Brignac was getting that guy in. None.

    Sitting in a freshly cut back yard + a Macanudo Prince Richard + a homemade pumpkin milk stoudt + listening to Mo shutting down his 630+ save = the good life.

    • The Real Me

      I’ve got a large piece of property (4+ acres)but it’s so damn dry out here, that I really can’t enjoy the satisfaction of freshly cut grass. It’s freshly cut weeds and dust blowing around …

      But, the Macanudo (or my preference, a H. Upman cedar wrapped Camaroon) sounds really good. Still a bit hot here now at 7PM. I’ll wait a bit longer and enjoy a nice single malt scotch along with the cigar.

  • Jorge Brosada

    Game of Thrones tonight too!

    • Pat D



      Or will all of that be saved until next year?

      • WhittakerWalt

        I don’t think anything major will be happening tonight. Not enough time.

        • Pat D

          Nor do I. But there has to be some kind of cliffhanger, and I’m not familiar enough with the books to guess what that might be.

  • WhittakerWalt

    Yanks are heading to the Bay Area, after a big win, and with a day off tomorrow. So the question is, how many piano bars will John Sterling be hitting tonight?

  • Wheels

    Good for Chris Stewart.

    • Reuben Sierra’s Chains

      Rather have Stewart or Kontos back?

      • Wheels

        It’s good to have Stewart around I guess.

  • D$1184

    I don’t suppose anyone saw that AMAZING Opening Number by Neil Patrick Harris to open the Tony’s tonight?

    • Pat D

      What are the Tony’s?

    • forensic

      Doogie can sing?

    • Jenny C

      Tony Soprano?

    • Jacob the OG

      When did he get into gay porn?

  • Jacob the OG

    Holy shit goosebumps on netflix! Childhood restored

  • JohnnyC

    LOL Mets. The three players they’re calling up from AAA are older than the three they’re sending down.

  • Pat D

    GOT finale = weak.

    • WhittakerWalt

      I disagree totally. The finales are always a lot quieter than the 9th episodes (which are usually mind blowing), but there’s nothing wrong with that. The finales serve as a bridge to the next seasons and tie up a lot of loose ends. Plus this particular season finale takes place mid-book, so there’s no natural climax to work with.
