DTOUR: Our Sports Cup Runneth Over

Get your mind out of the gutter, that's not what I meant. There's some good sports action to check out today, but most of it's happening early in the day.


On the other hand, this is a DTOUR, so it might be a good time to talk about the fact that the city of Chandler, Arizona decided to rip up the street outside my apartment complex and even close it for long time periods during the day about one month after I moved in. And now, despite my best efforts to keep it out, my apartment smells like asphalt. So now, walking to work and home again isn't by choice(good thing I carry my papers!), and it's 110 degrees outside(that's 43.3 Celsius to you non-Americans out there). So, that's how the offseason is going for me so far. If anyone else wants to bitch complain about where they live, feel free to do so.

But, the show must go on.

ACB Finals: Game 2 - Caja Laboral vs. Regal Barcelona [Caja Laboral leads 1-0]

11:00am Spurs Time @ Barcelona

Watch it on ACB360

So, Tiago and friends got a huge upset win in Barcelona the other day. Today, they look to put Barca on the ropes by taking a 2-0 lead back to their home arena in Vitoria. By the way, I was wrong about Barca's aggregate record in the previous post - after the game 1 loss, they are 59-6(!) on the season. If Caja wins the league title, that might just be one of the biggest upsets ever in the ACB.

World Cup: Day 2 Schedule (All Games Spurs Time)

South Korea v. Greece - 6:30AM

ARGENTINA v. Nigeria - 9:00AM

England v. United States - 1:30PM

U-S-A! U-S-A! Yeah, we totally care about non-American football when it's the World Cup! I know there's plenty of Argentines around here, too - although I doubt Hipuks will wake up at 7am to watch.
