It's hard to believe that a guy who scored nine points in a 103-82 blowout win would be the talk of the game, but that's what happened last night when the Bulls cruised past the Heat in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals. To say Bulls forward Taj Gibson came off the bench to provide a spark would be a slight understatement. First, he terrorized Dwyane Wade on this dunk, which got a tremendous reaction from play-by-play man Marv Albert. Then, Gibson put the finishing touches on the victory with this amazing put-back. As usual, one of the best things about performances like Gibson's is that it leads to fun with Wikipedia.

For Yankees fans, the combination of the Jorge Posada drama combined with getting swept by the Red Sox made for a miserable weekend. However, everyone got a chance to be miserable for a few minutes Saturday night when Fox decided to put Sarah Silverman in the booth with Joe Buck and Tim McCarver. This isn't a shot at Silverman, who I think is funny. It's just that having her mix with Buck and McCarver made me think of oil and water. As for what took place on the field, things were calm between the heated rivals as the Red Sox embarrassed the Yankees. Things were different between their Class A affiliates, whoengaged in this wild brawl on Saturday.
