I am not a big sports fan unless it involves stock cars circling an oval for 3 1/2 hours and 500 miles - then I love it. My Grandma, however; is a huge basketball fan. She loves her Utah Jazz and then she loves watching the NBA Finals even if her Jazz are not playing. So, we have been watching the Finals here and I have to say that I've really gotten into it. But then I am like that. The big games are the ones I like watching. The Superbowl. The NBA Finals. The University of Utah Utes vs. the BYU Cougars (Go Utes!). In these games - except the Utes vs. the Cougs- I cheer for the underdog, usually they are the ones who deserve it the most. I am not sure how much of an underdog the Dallas Mavericks are but Grandma and I were cheering for them to win. What do you know, they did it. The Dallas Mavericks beat the Miami Heat. It was awesome. It was fun to watch. So there..In your face Miami.
Now to my favorite sport...NASCAR...I along with a group of friends have a NASCAR pool going where each week we pick who we think will win and then get points for where they placed at the end of the race. The better your driver does the more points you earn, the more points you earn the better your chances of winning the pot of cash at the end of the season. For the first time, the driver I picked for a race actually won. Sure, it was Jeff Gordon and I am really NOT a fan of Jeff Gordon but his stats at this track were too good for me not to pick him. So there...In your face sister's boyfriend who thinks I don't know how to pick a driver. I can't wait to pass him up in points. Oh and Mixer Man is eating my NASCAR points dust. It's awesome!
