'Thought I'd awake from my extended blog coma just for a sec, to mark this week's historic, extraordinary events:

Tuesday, May 27: NBA referee Joey Crawford declines to call a last-second bump by Laker Legend Derek Fisher on spur Brent something-or-other. "Barry," I think. Barry did not shoot through the bump and instead drove around Fisher to attempt a fresh shot, making the refs reluctant to decide the game with a foul call.

Outraged spurs fans immediately whined and cried and screamed "NBA conspiracy" - and completely disregarded that the refs had gifted the spurs with the ball via blown shot-clock call on the previous play.

(Dickie then made this point on San Antonio's news Web site, drawing the spite and ire of thousands of Texans.)

Saturday, May 31: Clinton consiglieri Harold Ickes leads bellows of outrage among Hillary supporters on the Dems rules committee during a contentious meeting. He suggests the committee stole delegates from his candidates and adds she "reserves the right" to postpone the dispute all the way to the Denver convention.

Ickes et all., of course, completely disregarded that the Michigan and Florida primaries were deeply-flawed clusterfucks, with key variables such as, say, her opponent not being on the ballot, screwing up the final tallies.

Friday, May 30: After Your Los Angeles Lakers storm back from a 17-point lead by the veteran, aging spurs - outplaying them in the fourth and taking the series 4-1, the Hated Celtics clinch their series against the Pistons.

The move awakens the biggest rivalry Pro Basketball has ever known - and I am 10 years old again and giggling like a schoolgirl.

Tuesday, June 3: Sen. Barack Obama, who launched his White House bid about 15 months ago in the face of long odds against a well-tuned Clinton machine, (finally) clinches the Democratic presidential nomination.

The move makes him the first bi-racial African American in the nation's history to be nominated for president - and I get goosebumps watching the pre-rally coverage in Minneapolis.
