Today is quite a unique day in the world of sports. It’s not that often that boxing surges to the forefront of the sports world; it’s even less often that horse racing takes the stage.
But today, both the Kentucky Derby and the Manny Pacquiao-Sugar Shane Mosley will grab everyone’s attention.
Still, don’t forget that the NBA Playoffs are in full swing, and two pretty big stories are in the making: not only have the defending Eastern Conference champion Boston Celtics dug themselves a deep hole in their semifinals series against Miami, but the back-to-back NBA Finals champion Los Angeles Lakers now find themselves down three games to zero.
We’ll have to wait until Sunday to see if the Lakers can avoid the sweep, but the Celtics get another shot at the Heat today at 8 p.m., after the Grizzlies and Thunder battle in a pivotal Game 3.
All that makes for a pretty interesting weekend of sports.
