Last week, the NBA Finals began with the battle of Big Threes. On one side, we’ve got Miami, a team forged by trades, decisions, and The Decision. On the other, we’ve got the Spurs, a team that’s pretty much been the same since George W. Bush was in office–and LeBron James was in Cleveland. In Game One, San Antonio scored a decisive victory, 110-95, with Tim Duncan leading the Spurs with 21 points. In Game Two, LeBron un-cramped (again), scored 35 and helped the Heat eek out a 98-96 win. (more…)

Now, I’m not the type to stir the pot (intentionally), but as a wrestling fan, I’ve got to speak on this. As you may know, WWE decided to become even bigger and start its own network. Granted, it’s more Netflix than NBC, but the point is this: the WWE Network allows wrestling fans to get their fix of WWE, WWF, WCW, NWA, ECW, and other federations 24/7. It’s wrasslin’ Valhalla.
