The best part the Spurs' 111-92 smackdown and otherworldly shooting performance last night (over 75% in the first half) came after the game. (Unless you're a Spurs fan, of course, or had some cheddar on San Antonio.) During the postgame press conferences, "Bobby Ramos" of Bottomline! uttered a meandering, undecipherable question for LeBron James and Dwyane Wade. Just watch.
But then "Bobby Ramos Bottomline" (whose apparent website has exceeded its bandwidth limit, but you can check out his Facebook page) struck again when Erik Spoelstra took the podium, with this statement masquerading as a question.
Beautifully handled by Spoelstra. Who's in charge of the microphone down there?! I look forward to the Game 4 presser when we can only hope the legend of Bobby Ramos Bottomline will continue.
Blue Jays Fan With Pizza Breath Shut Down By Girlfriend
The man, in between bites of his stadium pizza, repeatedly pecked his girlfriend (or wife, I don't know) in the style of an actual blue jay until she decided she had had enough. You have to admire his persistence.

It's not easy to pull off the thin headband and massive goatee, and pretty much nobody on the current roster can do it.
Odds & Ends
Despite humongous 29-point performance, Kawhi Leonard was not spared Gregg Popovich's Five Point exploding heart technique ... Cost of Rangers-Kings tickets at MSG falling fast ... Texas Rangers cautioned to NOT do "the wave" at games for public safety (not aesthetic) reasons ... Crossing Broad reports that the man who puked on a girl at a Phillies game in 2010 has died ... Ben Revere showing off his six pack while wearing a Spartan helmet ... Sony to produce live action Sonic the Hedgehog movie ... The Daily Show's report on unionizing in college football is as good as you may expect... Current highest bid for Gregory Polanco's autographed game-worn jersey from his debut has topped $16,000 ... Although the departure with under two minutes wasn't as egregious as last year's Game 6 premature exodus, some Heat fans hit the exits early again.
