The Latest Results

Ok, 24 hour sports, fans, let’s check those latest results.  As of last night’s latest sports results the NBA finals got one game closer to that final moment of victory.  The Thunder beat the Mavericks, breaking their seven game winning streak and bringing the teams 1-1.  The next game will be played on Wednesday March 25th at Dallas.
In NFL news, while the players and owners are still going around and around in their court game, a new voice has been heard:  that of the fans.  The Sports Fans Coalition filed a brief in the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to the general tune of support of the players, citing the billions of dollars spent by fans each year on seeing their teams perform.
The United States Anti-Doping Agency has claimed another medal, this time Tyler Hamilton’s gold in cycling from 2004.  Hamilton handed over the medal after admitting to a jury and appearing on television show “60 Minutes” to discuss his use of performance enhancing drugs.   He also pointed a finger at Lance Armstrong, indicated that he too had been involved in doping during his career.  Armstrong responded via Twitter, saying “20+ year career. 500 drug controls worldwide, in and out of competition. Never a failed test. I rest my case.”  Being as how Armstrong is retired, he seems a bit of a pointless target for finger pointing.
