With the Spurs facing elimination against the Grizzlies last night, San Antonio guard Gary Neal saved the season by hitting a three-pointer at the end of regulation to send the game into overtime. The Spurs ultimately pulled away with a 110-103 victory. The game aired nationally on NBA TV, but for some reason the league is too cheap to hire its own announce team for a playoff game, so we were treated to the Memphis broadcast team. Obviously, their call of Neal's three was a bit uninspired. On the flip side, the San Antonio announcers went nuts. On a separate note, ESPN jumped the gun and gave the win to the Grizzlies.

Jack Is Back
Bruins play-by-play man Jack Edwards was featured in Hot Clicks last week when he screamed "GET UP" to an opposing player who went down after a check. That incident was NOTHING compared to the bizarre speech Edwards gave after Boston's overtime series-clinching win against Montreal last night.

The inbox has been completely stuffed with e-mails from readers asking that I cover a huge, breaking news story: Blake Lively is now a redhead. Personally, I don't see why you'd mess with perfection, but to each his/her own.
Get Ejected, Get On Twitter
Ozzie Guillen had a big-time meltdown (even for him) last night when he was ejected in the first inning of the White Sox game against the Yankees for arguing balls and strikes. The best part of the incident was that immediately after getting the boot, Guillen sent out this Tweet.
On A Serious Note...
As you know, several areas in the South were ravaged by tornadoes yesterday. Here is amazing footage taken of Alabama's Bryant-Denny Stadium as the tornado approached. If you'd like to help out the victims of this tragedy, visit the Red Cross website.
