Cavs Close Out Hawks


The Cleveland Cavaliers completed a four-game sweep of the Hawks Tuesday night and will face the winner of Golden State-Houston. It was a relatively mundane game with most of the fun coming off the court (except this LeBron James first-quarter dunk). Some other highlights: David Blatt and LeBron shared a tender moment, then Blatt dissed James on a handshake ... Kyrie Irving gave Anderson Varejao a love tap in the most painful of places ... Tristan Thompson shared the odd reason behind his dislike of seafood ... LeBron and James Jones are the first players since the 1960s to make five straight NBA Finals ... The cast of Entourage was on hand for the festivities ... J.R. Smith took a podium selfie after the game, then joined LeBron, Irving, Iman Shumpert and Kendrick Perkins for a hot tub celebration.

​FIFA. Yikes.

Several top FIFA officials were arrested in Zurich Wednesday morning and will be indicted on corruption charges from decades of "rampant, systemic, and deep-rooted" corruption by members of world soccer's governing body. I don't have much to add because the story is developing as I write. But after reading all that's going on in Qatar, I'm glad someone is being held accountable.

Lovely Lady of the Day

I've seen about 100 potential models for the 2016 SI Swimsuit Issue and none have been as impressive as Sofia Resing. Get used to her name. You'll be hearing it a lot over the next few years (click here for full-size gallery).

This dog used a trampoline to hop a fence and chase down his owner on the train during his commute to work. My dog just looked at me, yawned and went back to sleep.

Heard this song Tuesday night for the first time in years. It's still catchy, though not sure it would play well if released in 2015.
