The Morning Cheat Sheet (5/13/11)

“The Morning Cheat Sheet” is designed for those who may not eat, drink, or breathe sports on a regular basis. Cosby Sweaters delivers the essential bite-sized talking points you can use throughout the day to sound like an expert. When your significant other, coworkers, boss, kids, or the mailman dive into sports related conversation, simply recall and regurgitate “The Morning Cheat Sheet” and watch them nod their head in agreement (or spit out their coffee). Take that sports nerds.

1) NHL Final Four– The San Jose Sharks saved themselves some embarrassment by winning game 7 against the Detroit Red Wings in the NHL Playoffs.  The Red Wings had won 3 games straight, and to win 4 in a row would have been a Sharks disaster.  The final four teams are set:  Tampa Bay Lightning plays the Boston Bruins while The San Jose Sharks will play the Vancouver Canucks.  Totally fine to say: The Sharks got lucky as hell last night.

2) NBA Final Four –  With the Chicago Bulls winning last night the final four spots in the NBA Playoffs are filled.  The Chicago Bulls will play the Miami Heat in what will be the most anticipated series of the entire playoffs.  In the West, the Dallas Mavericks will be playing the Oklahoma City Thunder.  Don’t worry about saying: who cares about the West, that Bulls/Heat series will be awesome.
