Wake N’ Blog For May 26th: Escarg-NO! Some Kid Put 43 Snails On His Face On Purpose – What Is Wrong With People?
• NBA Conference Finals: Despite Carmelo Anthony suffering from a stomach virus and a twisted ankle and only scoring 15 points, the Denver Nuggets blew out the Los Angeles Lakers 120-101 to even up the series 2-2. Kenyon Martin and Nene both notched double doubles, getting 13 points, 15 rebounds and 14 points and 13 rebounds respectfully respectively (what am I, a goddamn moron? Jesus). Chauncey Billups and J.R. Smith each scored 24 points in the victory. [NBA.com]
• MLB Roundup. The Cleveland Indians rallied from 10 runs down to beat the Tampa Bay Rays 11-10. There were also a few blowouts: Detroit beat Kansas City, 13-1, the White Sox kicked the crap out of the Angels 17-3 and the Dodgers whooped the Rockies 16-6. [MLB.com Scoreboard]
• NASCAR. A rain-shortened Coca-Cola 600 ended with some guy named David Reutimann winning. Coming up later on Sportress of Blogitude: how to turn the cars sitting on concrete blocks in your yard into a profitable bed and breakfast. It’s all about the window treatments, people. [Yahoo!]
• Oh. He’s from Utah? Now it makes sense. Confirming once again why I find no need whatsoever to visit Utah, a 11-year-old boy from there allowed 43 snails to crawl on his face in his twisted and misguided attempt to get into the Guinness Book of World Records. Video of the woodhead performing his stunt can be found here, but instead of placing said video on my site, I will better utilize this space to embed a sketch from Mr. Show. The prevailing message contained therein is oddly fitting for this story. [MSNBC]
