Michael Whitehead, Tiger Woods, and the 2011 US OPEN

Today I will be rooting for Michael Whitehead, the young man who replaced Tiger Woods when he withdrew from the US Open due to being damaged goods. Michael, is also the young man who will have the honor of having my daughter be the flower girl in his wedding this July - he is marrying Christy's cousin! He has been dubbed the polar opposite of Tiger, which I hope consist solely of character - here is to hoping he surpasses Tiger's former winning ways! Here are a couple articles on his character, humility, and strong Christian beliefs:

Dallas Mavericks: 2011 NBA Champions

The Dalla Mavericks are you 2011 NBA Champions! It sounds almost too good to be true, but alas it is true. There is no other team in the league that can lay claim to What Dirk, Kidd, Terry, Cuban, JJ, Chandler, Carlisle and the Dallas Mavericks can, the title of Champions!

In my opinion, this image with the team of misfits and don't have a rings is part of the reason the Mavs became the NBA version of America's Team, the title truly fitting of Dallas' other team... how odd is that! There are not many teams who hate the Mavs (the San Antonio Spurs are the only losers that do), and if they don't like them, still respect Jason Kidd and Dirk. The story of the underdog is also applicable to the Mavs. Years of pain, from 2006 to the 80's and 90's are another reason it is so sweet and why America got on board. It was as though not only Dallas won, but everyone who has ever underachieved won too!

The main reason that Dallas became the NBA's America's Team is credited to the entitled, obscenely proud, arrogant, ignorant, childish, Hated Heat. You know, the team comprised of 3 players who decided to join forces instead of proving they were the best. The group that wanted to join the best, not beat the best. There is more that could be said about this team, but I would like to just say thank you. Thank You for making my team the most celebrated team in sports with your arrogance, ignorance, and entitlement. Go Mavs.

Now here are some pictures for all the heat haters:
