NBA Pick 'Em Week 25: All the Marbles Edition

Unfortunately the T-Wolves blew a lead (and my lock) with six seconds left last night, so I think that's it for my title hopes -- both games tonight are meaningless contests for everyone except the Pacers.

Pacers by 8 (slam dunk)

Blazers by 10 (slam dunk)

After Garcia missed the winning putt on 18, I was convinced he'd collapse mentally and not show up for the playoff hole -- the past repeating itself once again.

Really glad he got to bury his demons and win his first major instead.

That was the ugliest basketball I've seen in a long time. YMCA ball is less sloppy.

Frank Lampard Retires from Soccer

I'll echo sbacharach on this one: Lamps and Drogba were the only likable players on a talented but irritating Chelsea squad.

Now, if only he'd been able to add a trophy for England to his impressive club achievements...

I think you got the scores wrong, rcade. Dallas beat the Lakers last Thursday, and Cleveland beat the Celtics.
