It's Friday again, and the lockout is still in tact (despite a conflicting report). It's not all bad though. Apparently, Roger Goodell and DeMaurice Smith shared dinner together. You may be asking yourself, "Is that the biggest thing that happened this week?" Well, outside of Roger Goodell eating a ham sandwich for lunch on Thursday, yes it is. Did you catch the sarcasm? Did you? Enough of this, let's get to the randomly assorting, half-formed thoughts that is the "Friday Thought Drop."
As I alluded to in the intro, Roger Goodell and DeMaurice Smith apparently had dinner together. It's small, and relatively insignificant, but it's just another chance for the two to talk, and communication is key to ending the lockout.
In the same ballpark as the dinner news, talks are apparently continuing outside of the courts. That's the best damn piece of news I've heard since the Jaguars traded up to get Blaine Gabbert.
The Sharks are continuing to dominate the AFL. They're now 10-1 on the season.
I can't stand the Miami Heat. It's not that I hate the idea of a "big 3," but the way LeBron James announced that he was signing with the Heat.
On that same issue, I really like Dirk Nowitzki. He's always seemed like a really classy player, and I think it's time he gets his ring. I honestly thought that it would be the Lakers and the Heat playing for the title, but here we are with the Mavs instead of the Lakers, and they're only a game away from winning it all.
My final thought on the NBA is that I really think it ends with game 6. A game 7 would really be cool, but I think the Heat start to shut it down mentally if they trail by anything more than 10 points at anytime in game 6.
Moving to the NHL, the Stanley Cup Finals is tied up at 2-2. If you miss hitting (as I do), hockey is a great substitute. If you've never really watched hockey, tune into NBC at 8 PM tonight. It's not usually high scoring, but it's still a blast.
That's all I've got guys. Have a great weekend.
