Not sure if there are any jazz aficionados out there, but Julian "Cannonball" Adderley is my all time favorite sax player. No one before or after played the alto with such expressiveness, soul, power, beauty, and virtuosic authority.
So what's new this week?
The Rockies are on a bit of a losing streak having lost their last 4 games.
The Nuggets have a new GM
The Broncos have a new C
LeBron and the Heat are world champions. And boy, what arrogance from that guy huh? Grabs the MVP trophy from Bill Russell and doesn't even acknowledge him. Remember LeBron, without an epic 3-pointer by Jesus Shuttlesworth in game 6, you're just another sucka that lost the finals.
Fantastic hockey going on in the Stanley Cup. Three out of the four games have gone to overtime, and the series is tied 2-2 with game 5 on tap for Saturday.
RIP James Gandolfini
I loved just about everything this guy was ever in. My two favorite roles of his came in the movie "The Mexican" and his HBO series "The Sopranos." James Gandolfini was one hell of an actor who will be sorely missed. Whenever I think of the MOB or Jersey, I will always think of Tony Soprano. In fact, here's a great youtube video with the best "Sopranos" moments (WARNING, GRAPHIC VIOLENCE, ADULT SITUATIONS, STRONG LANGUAGE)
