Maverick Prayer

“Our Mavericks, who art in Texas, winners be thy name. The Heat will come, they will be done, in Miami as they will be in Texas. Give us this week a series win, and forgive us our Home loss as we cause home losses upon them. Lead us not into the offseason, but deliver us a…Championship. Amen.”

Wake up call: How low can Wade and LeBron go?

This story is going viral, if you will pardon the pun.

Dwyane Wade and LeBron James were caught pretending to be sick and apparently mocking Dirk Nowitzki on camera by channel 11 in Dallas. Nowitzki had a fever above 100 degrees during Game 4, but still managed to lead the Mavericks to a series-tying victory.

Here is the video:

Karma, if you believe in such a thing, came back to get Wade? He injured his hip
early in Game 5 and tried to play through it.

Wow. Pretty bold move guys. At least the Mavs won Game 5 and now are 1 win away from winning this series. I would imagine the Mavs will have the last laugh. Oh, and did I mention karma?

Rangers draft paralyzed outfielder Johnathan Taylor

From NBC Sports Hardball Talk:

The Rangers used their 33rd-round pick Wednesday to draft University of Georgia outfielder Johnathan Taylor, who was paralyzed after an outfield collision in March and is considered unlikely to walk again.

Taylor fractured two vertebrae in his spine in a collision with teammate Zach Cone three months ago.  Cone was the Rangers’ second-round pick, and it looks like the team decided it’d be a nice gesture to select Taylor afterwards.

The paralysis has affected all of Taylor’s extremities, so he is considered a tetraplegic.  He has some use of his arms, but no feeling in his legs or fingers.  Still, he is able to use his hands again and even play video games.  Since his spinal cord wasn’t severed, the hope is that his condition will continue improve with time.

Taylor hit .335 with a team-best .442 OBP for the Bulldogs in 2010.  He was playing in Georgia’s 11th game of this season when he was injured.

It’s hot in Texas, so why the black jerseys?

The Grand Prairie AirHogs baseball team played the Amarillo Sox today at QuikTrip Park in Grand Prairie. What was funny about the event was the AirHogs chose to wear thier black jerseys. Now anyone in Texas can tell you if you are out in the hot Texas sun, that’s the last color you want to wear in the direct sunlight.

The pitching coach for the AirHogs agreed. Let’s listen to Coach Thad Markray of the AirHogs:
