TDR: Feeling real blue
* Off the bench *
* Leading off *
Last night we had Game 1 between the Bucks and the Raptors with the Bucks coming out on top 108-100. Milwuakee kinda didn’t play that well, while the Raptors looked pretty good. The Bucks have had a pretty long break since beating the Celtics, so they might just be shaking off the dust. What did we learn from Milwaukee winning even though they played poorly, class? We learned that they are super tough to beat. We also learned that Brook Lopez gets frustrated, he becomes a dangerous man. His fourth quarter was enough to clinch the win for his team and keep things moving in the right direction for his Bucks. Tonight the Warriors and Trailblazers meet for Game 2 with the Warriors up 1-0 in the series.
You know what, gang? It’s been a minute since we had officiating drama, but the refs are back and making egregious mistakes! Last night’s Game 3 between the Sharks and the Blues was a great one. It went into overtime with the Sharks winning 5-4, and was a v fun back and forth game, but the Sharks got the win after the refs missed a call (a hand pass to be specific). They couldn’t right the wrong because it’s a non-reviewable play. DUMB. Big bummer for the Blue boiis. Tonight the Bruins have a chance to close out the series over the Hurricanes. They lead 3-0, so one more win will secure the sweep.
The second major of the year is upon us, and all eyes are on Tiger. “But, Kelly!” you say. “Isn’t the PGA Championship usually in August?? It’s May!!!” I know, I know, my little munchkins. They switched it up this year. We’re doing the PGA Championship in May now, capeesh? The tournament is at Bethpage Black this year, which is a crazy hard course. If you are friends with any golfers in NYC, you have certainly seem them post a picture of the sign that says “WARNING EXTREMELY DIFFICULT COURSE DO NOT TRY TO DO THE GOLF HERE IF YOU ARE NOT GOOD AT THE GOLF” with the caption “tough day at the office”. Tiger is climbing back after a weak start and is tied for sixth. Brooks Koepka is in the lead (no surprises here) and we are off to a fun start. Brooks won the U.S Open back-to-back in 2017 and 2018 and then won the PGA Championship in 2018 as well. The guy is on a Major roll.
