It’s Monday again but hang in there. It’s almost a three-day weekend!
You can do it,
The Last Night’s Game team
PS - Need a little extra motivation this morning? Leave it to Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson to kick-start your day.
- It’s in the cloud. The quest for the Triple Crown came to an end on Saturday. Cloud Computing, who was fresh after not racing in the Kentucky Derby, won The Preakness. Derby winner, Always Dreaming, came in eighth in a field of 10.
- Hold my beer. The other race at The Preakness isn’t on the track; it’s the famed port-a-potty races. Yes, racing atop port-a-potties while onlookers try to knock you off by throwing beer cans. What could go wrong?
NBA (National Basketball Association)
- Unstoppable. The Golden State Warriors make things look easy. Saturday, they beat the overpowered San Antonio Spurs to take a 3-0 series lead in the playoffs. The Warriors remain undefeated in the playoffs.
- Detained. Oklahoma City Thunder’s Enes Kanter, a Turkish citizen, was traveling abroad on behalf of his charity. Kanter has long been an outspoken critic of the Turkish president and upon arriving in Romania, he was detained because his passport had been cancelled by the Turkish government. The NBA called the U.S. State Department for help and he was later released.
- The Dancing With The Stars season 24 finale begins tonight and it features two athletes. Former Chicago Cubs catcher David Ross (MLB – Major League Baseball) and NFL (National Football League) running back Rashad Jennings will battle it out with pop star Normani Kordei for the mirrorball trophy.
- In last night’s NBA playoff game, Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James scored zero points in the fourth quarter. This is the second time in his career that he played the entire fourth quarter in the playoffs and failed to score. The Cavs eventually lost the game to the Boston Celtics.
- Former NFL player Myron Rolle has accomplished more than most by age 30. He's not only a Rhodes Scholar who played professional football but a medical school graduate who will start his neurosurgeon residency at Harvard next month. Guess you’d say he’s accomplished.
