"Bits O' Info"

Couple of quick things to get to in this post:

~Roger Federer made it to his first final in the year 2008. It seems like tennis stars fade as quickly as they come, and while Federer was certainly more dominant than most it seems as though his days of being a finals shoe-in are over. It'll be interesting to see if he starts to become dominant again, or if he will continue to fall back towards the pack.

~The NHL playoffs have been amazing so far. I am by no means a huge hockey fan, but the sport definitely seems to be on a slow crawl back into the spotlight. It still has a long way to go, with getting off Versus being the first step, but if they can continue with the exciting play I've seen so far in the playoffs they should be able to rebound.

~Colin Cowherd ripped into the Seattle Supersonics on his show this week, saying that they don't deserve an NBA team. He says they made their choice when they gave new stadiums to multiple other teams before giving the Sonics one. He also said that it's ridiculous that the former owner of the Sonics, Howard Schultz, is upset with Clay Bennett (who bought the team from Schultz). He believes that Schultz should have known Bennett would want to take the team to Oklahoma City as Bennett is from there and has his business based there. I understand where he is coming from, but I completely disagree with what he is saying. Seattle deserves a team, and the Sonics are rich in tradition. Just because one idiotic owner sold it to another one doesn't mean the fans of the Sonics should suffer. And seriously, if David Stern is considering putting teams overseas, wouldn't it make sense to put a new team in Oklahoma City while he is at it.
