First Round at Colonial

And they're off! ...Well, kinda at least. Besides having the first round suspended due to the thunderstorms and floods on the course, first round at Colonial has begun. Anthony Kim, in the picture above, has put in 6 consecutive birdies so far! This is probably the longest streak in the PGA Tour for this season. Man! 6 birdies and they were all one after the other! I think this will boost up Mr Kim's confidence and put him in a position to lead the tournament with a 7 under score as of now.

The suspension of the first round has only let about half of the players, out of the total of 114 players, to complete their round for the day. I'll be looking forward on the Golf Channel to see more action from Anthony Kim!

Cleveland Cavaliers vs Detroit Pistons - Game 2 Eastern Finals!

Wow, just unbelievable. What were the chances! Game 2 of the Eastern Conference between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Detroit Pistons ended up once again, with a 79-76 win for the Pistons to give them a 2-0 lead so far. It was the exact same score as last time! This time though, Rasheed Wallace from the Pistons was on fire throughout the whole game, and especially the fourth quarter. I think the Pistons had dominated over the Cavs during their defensive part of their game. To have crawled back from the 12 point loss during the first half, they prevented the Cavs from scoring much in the 3rd and 4th quarters. The Pistons made LeBron give up six turnovers, which was very costly for the Cavs. In the second half, the Cavs only managed to score 13 points per quarter. I don't think the Cavs have adjusted to the environment of home court of the Pistons yet. But the next two games will serve as an advantage for the Cavs with home court advantage. I really hope LeBron can keep up with the pressure and play better in his next few games.

Champions League Final - AC Milan vs Liverpool

Tough luck for Liverpool and their fans...including me. I woke up early today to watch the game, but sadly, Liverpool lost 2-1 to AC Milan. Filippo Inzaghi had scored both goals for AC Milan. In 2005, quite a similar thing happened back then. AC Milan were against Liverpool once again and they were facing a 3-0 lead by Liverpool at half-time, but lost in the penalty shoot-out when they climbed to a 3-3 game. It was noticeable that AC Milan really boosted up their aggressiveness and made the effort to defeat and not lose to Liverpool today.

Then again, I must say that this time, I think AC Milan did get a little lucky. They had an accidental deflection by their own team-mate and the ball ran past Liverpool's goalie for their 2nd goal.

Squash - Delia Arnold

I've just also read another big achievement for a fellow Malaysian in The Star. The NSC Satellite No 3 Squash Tournament was held at the National Squash Centre in Bukit Jalil. Delia Arnold, just 21 years old, had beat her training partner, Lim Yoke Wah, in the women's finals to win her first professional squash title of her career. Delia had dominated throughout the game, winning all three matches with scores of 9-2, 9-5, and 9-2, to take home almost 1 thousand dollars! Now Delia is currently ranked 52nd in the Women's International Squash Players Association (WISPA) World Rankings!

What an achievement! She should be soaring up the charts in the near future if she keeps up her training to get better. She has jumped 4 spots from her previous position of 56 to 52. She has gotten to her place right now with only 11 months of professional squash playing experience! I think she is really going to have a lot of potential as in the future.

Detroit Pistons vs Cleveland Cavaliers - Game 2 (Tomorrow)

I will be looking forward to tomorrow's game. It will be quite tough for the Cleveland Cavaliers as they will be playing at the home court of the Detroit Pistons. Having lost Game 1 by 3 points only, I hope to see LeBron be much more aggressive this time around. As a matter of fact, he must play with a more aggressive attitude this time because if not, his team won't be able to win this next game. I'm also pretty sure that the Detroit Pistons are going to press the Cavs hard with their defense. Every year, the coach for the Pistons has never failed and has always trained his players to play the best defense in the NBA.
