In a perfect world, our favorite athletes would play forever. They cause us to think unrealistically and give us an escape from reality, and we love that about them. Especially superstars who played an integral part in your childhood. You grow up wanting to emulate them knowing your best backyard heroics pale in comparison to what they do in front of millions seemingly every night. Ken Griffey, Jr. was one of those athletes.
Not trying to take anything away from the Celtics and the completeness of their domination, but Boston's win last night wasn't nearly as interesting as Cleveland's loss.
When it comes to sports, those who document them are almost as important as the athletes themselves. For those who are still not in the know, ESPN is the architect behind one of the greatest documentary campaigns ever. Their “30 For 30” series has already produced classics centering around subjects like Len Bias, The University of Miami, the Knicks/Pacers rivalry and even one on the way about the Los Angeles Raiders - narrated by Ice Cube.
You want to cause a splinter within the ranks of the Solar Temple of Michael Jordan followers.

That hipster moan you heard in the greater New York City area yesterday was Ufford enjoying the return of Ken Griffey's return to the Mariners in his own special way.
Reversing course on what seemed like a done deal with the Braves, Ken Griffey Jr instead opted to return to the Seattle Mariners, signing a one-year deal worth everything in the world to me $2 million, plus incentives.
I usually don't write about being "happy" or "liking" things, but the word of Ken Griffey Jr's imminent return to the Seattle Mariners -- pending a physical this weekend -- is making me feel.
We showed these before but now clearer pics have surfaced.
The White Sox earned the AL Central pennant last night, winning a 1-0 nailbiter over the Twins in a 163rd-game tiebreaker.
Reds outfielder Ken Griffey Jr owed teammate Josh Fogg $1500 -- I'm guessing Fogg sold him a tendon -- so Junior paid him back in pennies.
Aaron Harang and the Reds shut out the Dodgers 1-0 last night, sending Los Angeles to its sixth straight loss.
