Lebron James and Cavs Sweep Hawks in Five Games

Just right now, 9pm in Mongolia on May 12th, 2009, while I was watching Bloomberg, I saw for the first time in my life, Bloomberg cover sports.  The reporter on Bloomberg Asia showed highlights of LeBron James and Cavs and talked about how the Cavs have swept the Hawks in the second round… and then went on to say that Game 5 is on later tonight.

LOL. WOW, maybe Bloomberg SHOULD just stick to finances… maybe they’ll make better predictions!

My Sidebar Widgets Disappeared from My WordPress Blog – How To Fix It

Just this morning, I noticed that my sidebar had disappeared from my WordPress blog.  My research yielded solutions that were, in my mind, not the easiest for most people to understand and easily follow.  As such, I thought I would write something that is very easy to follow for vast majority of us bloggers who are not programmers or web designers.  The solution turns out is very easy.   And, hopefully this post will save you a couple of minutes or half an hour or so.

Did you watch the game?

I watched it on justin.tv.  ESPN and Star Sports were showing baseball and soccer, so this was the only place I could watch the game from Mongolia.  Every 3-4 sec the screen froze for a 1-2 sec, but it still was wonderful to watch the third Nuggets game and the first Nuggets playoff game in the last two years.  Just hearing the announcers and other people talk about the Nuggets was exciting.

Anyway, this game was just unbelievable.  I mean, I was just completely at loss for words.  WOW.  Continue reading Nuggets Just Destroyed the Hornets – Denver wins by 58!
