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!
It was actually a very nice coverage. Like everything you come to expect from Bloomberg, the story was short and to the point, with some great graphic highlights of LeBron James making spectacular plays. They even mentioned that he just got his first NBA MVP and that the Cleveland Cavaliers are undefeated this postseason, etc. The only problem is that they made a completely false prediction.
I’m gonna go out on a limb and say that there is NO WAY that the Cavs are going to play the Hawks tonight.
This was definitely the highlight of my evening. I think Bloomberg just added 5 additional minutes to my life for the sheer joy that I have gained from this.
By the way, I should probably mention that I have only been watching Bloomberg since March this year. So, maybe Bloomberg has covered sports in the past. I just hadn’t seen it before. So needless to say, it was already amuzing to begin with… just to see Bloomberg covering sports.
It wasn’t even just any sports; it was my favorite sport – basketball. Being in Mongolia, most of the basketball games are in Chinese or Russian languages. Others are in Mongolian language dubbed over Russian/Chinese. As you can see, I was pretty excited to begin with. And, then hearing game 5 is later tonight… as Peter from Family Guy would say… freaking awesome!
I’m out like Hawks in five games.
