Wake N’ Blog For May 20th: Sure, “Love Land” Sounds Cool, But I Don’t Know If I Would Have Taken A Ride On The Phallus Wheel


NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs. It must be disheartening for the Blackhawks to come to the realization that Detroit isn’t even playing their best hockey and yet they find themselves down 2-0 in the series. Jonathan Toews scored for Chicago late in the third to force overtime, but Mikael Samuelsson scored on a 3-on-1 5:14 into overtime for a 3-2 Detroit victory. []

NBA Playoffs. Facing a seven point deficit heading into the 4th quarter, the Lakers, Kobe Bryant in particular, turned it on and edged the Nuggets 105-103. Bryant scored 15 over the final 6:48 and scored 40 points for the game. Los Angeles now leads the series 1-0. []

MLB Scoreboard. Dontrelle “Fragile Frankie” Willis was dazzling, winning his first game in almost 20 months, going 7 innings and allowing only one hit in Detroit’s 4-0 victory over the Texas Rangers, Detroit’s fourth straight win and snapping Texas’ seven game-winning streak. Elsewhere, Boston beat Toronto 2-1 despite David Ortiz going hitless (again), Oakland scored four in the 11th inning to beat Tampa 4-1 and Joel Pinero pitched a three-hit shutout as the Cardinals blanked the Cubs 3-0.

I guess I’ll be canceling my trip to Chonqing- no reason to go now. A theme park devoted to all things sexual was demolished before it was even opened, according to a Chinese government official. Named “Love Land” by its owners, “featured explicit exhibits of genitalia and sexual culture.” You don’t even want to know what the flume ride entailed. It’s probably for the best for people who would have went to “Love Land”, because they would have simply wanted to go back and pay admission to enter again a half-hour later. [MSNBC]
