In some completely not surprising news, the television ratings for this year's NBA Finals are down from last year's, in which LeBron James and Kevin Durant had a literal and figurative clash of the titans to decide the 2011-2012 NBA championship. But did the Tony Awards help to ruin the ratings for last night's Game Two?
The Miami Heat finally began to assert their will in the NBA Finals during a 33-5 run that spanned the third and fourth quarters. The run gave them the first double digit lead for either team in the Finals so far. LeBron James, despite having a weak offensive game, punctuated the run with this violent block on a Tiago Splitter dunk attempt.
When we last left you after Game One of the NBA Finals, Tony Parker was hitting amazing shots, analysts were lamenting the downfall of the Heat, and many were questioning the masculinity of Chris Bosh (this happens after every game). Today, the Heat look to draw even with San Antonio to send the series to the home of the Spurs in a 1-1 tie.
When you talk about the best players in the NBA, San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker rarely comes to mind due to the fact that he plays in a small market. However, shots like the one he hit to clinch Game One of the NBA Finals are great reminders that he is one of the league's best talents.
Alex Rodriguez was once one of the most polarizing figures in sports due to his on field performance. While some enjoyed his frequent displays of power, others lamented over his lack of postseason success. Today, however, with Rodriguez unable to play due to injury, public opinion against A-Rod has turned decidedly negative.
Soccer is often a low scoring game that requires flashes of brilliance to see goal totals rise. However, in many national cup competitions, powers in each nations' club ranks have the opportunity to tee off on lesser, sometimes amateur competition. This results in some serious blowouts, like the one that took place in Estonia today when FC Flora Tallinn demolished FC Reaal Tallinn by a score of 18-0.

Ramon Ortiz has been around for what feels like forever. His career started in 1999, when I was a mere nine years old. Last night, his career pretty much came to an end after he injured his elbow while throwing a pitch for the Toronto Blue Jays, bringing him to tears on the pitcher's mound.
Indiana Pacers center Roy Hibbert drew the ire of many, including the NBA's league offices, when he went on a rant following Game Six of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Miami Heat. Hibbert, generally perceived as a good guy by fans, used a homophobic slur and used profanity to address the media as well.
