Tony Romo married Candace Crawford at a private event in a tent in Dallas over the weekend.  The couple have been together for 2 years and Romo proposed late last year.  Candace is the sister of Gossip Girl star Chace Crawford....

Shaquille O'Neil announced his retirement via Twitter yesterday 19 years in the game.  Shaq, who started his career in Orlando and came to the Los Angeles Lakers and won 3 championships with Kobe Bryant before their relationship exploded and Shaq was traded to the Heat where he won 1 more ring.  He finished his career in Clevelend and Boston.  Although Shaq wore enemy jerseys, The Lakers announced they will be retiring Shaq's Jersey next season....

LeBron James is just 3 games away from winning his first ring and from the looks of what the Miami Heat did to the Dallas Mavericks in game 1, they may already be sizing up their ring finger. Dirk Nowitzki tore tendons in a shooting finger and aside from Dirk, Dallas's offense was stagnant.  The NBA Finals continue tonight with game 2, where Miami is looking to take a 2 game lead over the hurting Mavericks......Dr.FB

Is it hard to believe that it was only 2 weeks ago when I said this Lakers/Celtics series would be "one for the ages?"

It has, and it has been one for the ages and tonight.....is the icing on the cake.  Game 7.  It all comes down to one game.  One of, if not the biggest rivalry in sports, the Los Angeles Lakers versus the Boston Celtics gets a game 7.  Any celebrity in L.A. or from Boston will be at the game tonight.

Fox 11 is saying stubhub.com is selling to tickets for $82,500.  Yes, you read that right.  Unless George Lopez gives me a call, I will be watching courtside...er..I mean couchside. 

So......who will win this game 7 to one of the biggest games ever in NBA & sports history?

Is Casey Anthony Guilty?

The Boston Celtics Eliminate The Bulls In Memorable Playoff Series

The Boston Celtics eliminated the Chicago Bulls from the playoffs after a great playoff series.

You are not beating Boston at the Garden when it is game 7.  Said it all along.  Now, the Celtics will play the Orlando Magic on Monday night.  Will Orlando step up or sleep walk like they did against the 76ers in game 1 of the first round where they got spanked? I will be looking forward to Monday as well as my Los Angeles Lakers take on the Houston Rockets.

Tune in Monday.  Us?  We have a fight to cover and P. Diddy already beat us to our seat.-Dr.FB

Boston Celtics Versus Chicago Bulls Last Night…

You all see that triple overtime game last night between the Chicago Bulls and Boston Celtics?  The Bulls won sending it back to the Garden for game 7.

I have said all along there is no way you are winning a game at the Garden if you are the road team that is a game 7.

Will Chicago prove me wrong tomorrow?-Dr.FB

The Cavs moved on.  The Lakers moved on.  The rest...well, it's kind of weird.

I did say that the Mavs would beat San Antonio.  I just did not know they would dismantle them.  Denver laying the smackdown on the Hornets by 58. The Hornets say it's just one game.  True, but only one team won a series after getting beat that bad.  They got beat so bad, Chris Brown took credit for it. 

These playoffs have been exciting by teams thinking they could sleep walk thru a series.  Yes, Orlando and Miami, I am talking about you.  Orlando will & has recovered, Miami will not.  Houston is about to eliminate Portland and move out of the first round without you know who, who can't get out of a first round.

The most exciting series hands down has been the Boston Celtics versus the Chicago Bulls.  3 over times in 3 games?  Seriously?  Another one last night that went the Celtics way with Ray Allen fouled out, Garnett in street clothes and Powe out for the season.  This series was the most exciting.  The Bulls may force a game 7 with a win on Thursday, but you are not beating Boston in a game 7 at the Garden.  Not. Gonna. Happen.  Not even Jordan did it.

As the Lakers and Cavs sit and wait, I will make this second round prediction; The Mavs will beat the Nuggets in the 2nd round to face the Lakers after L.A. knocks off the Rockets.  Take it to Vegas baby.-Dr.FB
