The early part of the week can be killer for sports fans. Especially if you’re older and it means leaving your weekend behind and returning back to the daily grind.
Maybe you just need a list of stuff to keep your brain in sports mode. Or maybe you need some interesting stuff to share with your colleagues around the water cooler. Maybe it’s a simple as finding some random stuff to Google.
That’s just another use for LRDP. We’re gonna be particularly useful when football starts and Tuesday is the first day of the long wait until Saturday/Sunday.
The final score: Celtics 85, 76ers 75. An exciting series that was still undecided entering the 4th quarter of Game 7.

In case you missed it, the OKC Thunder CRUSHED the LA Lakers 106-90 to win the series 4 games to 1. They’ll advance to the final four to play the San Antonio Spurs.
Maybe the Spurs are the most dominant force as of late, but it’s barely arguable that the Thunder are the most exciting.
Kind of impossible to draw a lot of conclusions, but the Thunder already look focused on the next task at hand. And Kobe… well… let’s just say it probably won’t be pleasant to be within 5 feet of his presence for the next few days.
**Exciting game last night as the LA Lakers tried to fight off the OKC Thunder. LA was in the lead by as much as 13 with 8 minutes to go before a familiar scene unfolded: rally time by the losing team. Yup, Kevin Durant hit ANOTHER game-winner and OKC is up 3-1. Josh (LRDP’s resident Laker fan) and Cronise covered it live. Continue reading →
Celtics come crashing down as Philly ties the series.
**It looked like the Celtics-Sixers game was gonna be a blowout. But things changed suddenly and the tension never let up. LRDP took it to Twitter. The following transcript is a pieced together conversation over Twitter during the end of the game. Plus a few aftermath comments. Continue reading →
