The Orlando Magic pulled off a stunner last night by erasing a 15-point halftime deficit and handing the Cleveland Cavaliers their third loss in 46 home games this season to take a 1-0 lead in the Eastern Conference finals. Meanwhile, Adam Lambert suffered the same fate as the Cavs, because Kris Allen shocked the world by winning American Idol. And each event featured a surreal moment. Dwight Howard caused the shot clock to collapse after a monster dunk, while KISS -- yes, KISS -- performed on Idol. But while KISS' appearance was a highlight, it wasn't the highlight. That was judge Kara DioGuardi ripping off her dress to upstage "Bikini Girl."
There was another lineup-card blunder last night. This one involved the Houston Astros. It was even more confusing than the Rays' mess-up over the weekend that forced pitcher Andy Sonnanstine to bat third.
Are any of you watching Michael Irvin's reality show, 4th and Long, that debuted this week on Spike TV? I haven't gotten one e-mail about it, but after reading and seeing this, maybe we should all give it a shot.
