Boomer and Craig got things started this morning by talking about the NBA Finals as Long Island’s own Danny Green (pictured) rained down six more threes (bringing his five game total to 25, an NBA Finals record) and lead the Spurs to a 114-104 win over LeBron James and the Heat.
Regardless of which team you’re rooting for, if you’re a fan of the game then you can’t help but be impressed by the Spurs’ style of play. Boomer and Craig sure are.
From there, Craig did some speculating at the expense of one Jim Nantz, after Justin Rose won the US Open yesterday afternoon at the expense of Phil Mickelson. Mickelson finished second for the sixth time, which makes “Lefty” a loser, according to Craig.
The guys rounded things out on the baseball diamond, as the Yanks snapped their five game slide by hanging on to beat the Angels, 6-5, in Anaheim. Mark Teixeira will have a cortisone shot for his ailing wrist, which according to Craig marks the beginning of the end for Tex.
The Mets meanwhile trialed the Cubs, 3-0, in the bottom of the 9th inning before the bats woke up. Long balls by Marlon Byrd and Kurt Niewenhuis propelled the Mets to an improbable 4-3 win.
