Wake N’ Blog For May 29th: Dogs & Cats Living Together (With A Neglected Child)…Mass Hysteria!
• NBA Playoffs. LeBron James scored 17 points in the 4th quarter and had 37 points total, 14 rebounds and 12 assists and loudmouth Mo Williams, who guaranteed the Cavaliers would win the series, added 24 points in Cleveland’s 112-102 victory over the Orlando. The Magic were able to erase a 22 point defecit, but James was too strong down the stretch, either scoring or assisting on 29 of Cleveland’s 34 points in the 4th quarter. Orlando still holds a 3-2 series lead heading back home for Game 6 on Saturday night. [NBA.com]

• If only the MLB could somehow suspend the voices in his head. Carlos Zambrano’s epic meltdown, where he threw a baseball, slammed his glove and beat the ever-living crap out of the dugout drink dispenser, netted him a six-game suspension and a $3,000 fine. “I think I’m a pretty good jdugeo fwhen you make a mistake, whey you do something wrong, you have to pay for it,” Zambano said. The Crazy is standing next to Carlos, in silent lucidity. Yeah. [Chicago Tribune]
• In Russia, cats and dogs take care of you! A 5-year-old girl in the Eastern Siberian city of Chita was found living among only cats and dogs her entire life, was taken into care by Russian police. “The unwashed girl was dressed in filthy clothes, had the clear attributes of an animal and jumped at people,” a report said, and according to police, “she appears to be about 2-years-old, though her real age is five, refuses to eat with a spoon and has taken on many of the gestures of the animals with which she lived,” and “[w]hen carers leave the room, the girl jumps at the door and barks.” A sad story, but she’s a shoo-in for Brett Michael’s Rock of Love 18: Someone To Change My Diaper, so that’s good.
