I see that now, just didn't see it under the May 2nd heading.  Noted, and I retract my previous request.

I can't wait for this weekend. Kentucky Derby, NBA Playoffs, Hatton/Pac Man and I get to see the Rangers on WGN!

Of all, I wanna see the Derby the most but Hatton/Pac Man should be great. I really like Hatton in this fight.

And they're off...it's the Red Wings &the Ducks, two playoff games from the Joe...oh, here comes the Game 7 in Boston, Bulls and Celtics headsed to another OT..oh no.! Now, half way home, the Heat is high in Miami, the Hawks are swooping down, and in Chicago...the Cubbies are back in town. The Mets and the Phils...the Yanks and the "Halos. Now down the back stretch, thy Stanley Cup runneth over...the Caps and Pens...Ovechkin has scored again.! Into Vancouver the 'Hawks flew, losing 5-3, they hope to do better in Game two.In Boston, a Hurricane warning is up: Tim Thomas wants it to stop.Down the strech they come, Open wheel racing, and the good 'ole boys of Nascar rubbin' & racin'. But...as the come to the finish line, we all now how it goes...the beautiful ladies in their hats, the men sippin' whiskey...it's the Kentucky Derby by a nose.
Enjoy your weekend of sports, and have fun with the family.!

Damn, yet another image I can't see from work.  But a Saved by the Bell reference along with one of the bigger tv douches of all time is quite all right with me.

That should be an awesome fight though, two guys clearly at the top of the food chain in the boxing world.

I was watching the weigh-in just now on SportsCenter, and couldn't help but notice A.C. Slater in the background with his grin..
