Well, another year, another missed chance for horse racing's Triple Crown...

This past Saturday, Kentucky Derby winner Animal Kingdom finished the Preakness Stakes second to Shackleford, eliminating him from trying to win all three races. The third would be the Belmont Stakes, June 11th.

The last time any horse won all three races was when Affirmed did it in 1978, a year after Seattle Slew.

The Finals are set in basketball:

Mavericks vs. Heat

If Dallas could take this series and put LeBron in his place, I would be soooo happy...

EDIT, 6/9: The woes in Seattle baseball are back, and worse than ever.

As our so-called "offense" fizzles out once again, one aspect that was highly noted was the lack of production from Ichiro.

For the past ten years, he has impressed us all by getting 200 hits each year, a record for consecutive seasons, and tied with Pete Rose for overall seasons. So it comes as no surprise that people in the PNW were looking forward to him breaking another record.

Seattle fans are used to seeing him hit into "rough patches," such as the slow start he had in 2004, where he would later flourish and break the single season hit record that George Sisler held in the '20s.

But this is getting serious. Has he petered out now?

On the plus, the Mariners are playing like a team again for the first time in a LONG time!

Watched a great Brewers game this afternoon. They scored 4 runs in the 6th to come from behind and sweep the Cardinals and secure the top spot in the NL central for the first time this year. Only time will tell how historic this day might be. The important thing is, I was there.

And Dallas completes the upset and makes history as the first team to lose Game Three in the NBA Finals series and still win the title in the 2-3-2 format. I guess it's time for me to get a binky for baby Bron-Bron. :lol:

I'm the least sportsy person I know, yet I'm so jazzed about the Mavs win that I went and turned my own car over!

p.s. Here's a twitter-tweet by DavinR: Several thousand Haitians, El Salvadorans, and Ethiopians are eagerly awaiting their delivery of "Heat 2011 Champs" shirts.

I hadn't been watching much of the basketball playoffs, either, but I just HAD to see Dallas hold off Miami tonight!

Great work, guys!

I actually didn't see a second of it. I was watching The Closer, and switching over during commercials. Only every time I flipped over, they were at commercial too. :roll:

I'm with you on one of 'em, at least.

When they got that Super Bowl against the Seahawks, sure, all of Seattle was mad, but did they go out and riot like the Canucks fans after they lost the Stanley Cup yesterday?

NO.

Seattleites had already used up their energy in the '99 WTO riots.
