Meltdown in Miami

No Mavericks Playoff Passes will be used today :( The Dallas Mavericks had a little bit of a defensive and offensive let down in the forth quarter last evening while the Miami Heat found a little bit left in their tanks and rode Dwyane Wade to the victory. Since I originally figured this to be a six game series, I'm not too concerned. I would love to see the Mavericks take this loss hard and come out fighting on Thursday night. There's no sense in letting the Heat have any more hope than they already do.

Today is Wacky Photo Wednesday on the Sugarless deLight blog. The first one just doesn't look like it could be real and the second definitely was since I saw it this morning.

Just barely holding on!


Who said that white men can’t jump? They were right in this case as the Ukrainian wall failed against David Villa’s free kick.


The last photo is part of the World Cup Wednesday feature. The first matches for all of the groups are almost complete with the final games being played today. Team USA did not fair well at all in its Monday match against the Czech Republic. It seems that they brought nothing to the pitch. The 3-0 defeat was a total domination effort with the first goal coming only 5 minutes into the match. Team USA is going to need a victory on Saturday against the power house Italian team to have any hope of coming out of the Group E. Here are the current standings.

For those of you not familiar with how the World Cup format works, here is a short guide. After a long qualifying process, the 31 qualified teams plus the host country team are separated into Groups A-H. The teams then play a round robin format within their groups playing each other team in the group once. Teams receive 3 points for a win and 1 point for a draw. If there is a tie in the points, the top two teams are decided by the goal differential. The top two teams in each group then advance to the single-elimination format where it is when or go home. This is essentially the Sweet 16 of soccer. From here the final four rounds are played and the winner is given the world’s most revered trophy, the FIFA World Cup Trophy.

Last, but not least, Happy Flag Day! Have a great day and we'll see you tomorrow.
