Detroit rock city

Congrats to the Detroit Pistons on their well-deserved NBA championship. Damn, but they kicked butt. Ben Wallace is the best natural rebounder I've seen since Moses Malone, and he had a lot of help. They were just the better team, in every sense of the word. And in this day and age of grinding defense, whoever thought they'd see winning basketball with the fast break again? Woo hoo!

By the way, is it just me, or does Shelley (Mrs. Larry) Brown look a lot like Catherine Bell?

The Pistons were simply, wow, impressive this year.

Both Wallaces are awesome.

Poor Kevin Drum is taking a mostly good-natured beating about this. I'm glad mostly because ESPN was making this series the sports equivalent of the Reagan necrophilia that we saw last week, and now it's over.

Mmmm...Catherine Bell. Sexiest Scientologist around.

I'm so tickled that the Lakers lost (didn't really care who won, so long as it wasn't the Lakers) that I've been breaking out in a singsongy "Lakers suck, Lakers suck. Nyah nyah nyah nyah nyah" all morning. Sure it's petty. But my morning's only two hours old and the caffeine is just starting to kick in.

Chuck, this is an example of why your blog rocks. Any guy who can post about an NBA basketball series yet credibly tie it Catherine Bell and then link to her web site is ....uh...uh....sorry. That smile is in the background and I lost my train of thought. Now what was I saying? Oh yeah, you're brilliant.

I didn't need my coffee this morning to wake up. I saw the Catherine Bell web site and I woke up immediately. ;-)

And you've gotta love the Kiss reference in the title of the entry, too.
