Unable to post over the past week or so, I began my day by brainstorming what to highlight on this Waterworks Wednesday.
I thought perhaps I would dissect the Oklahoma City Thunder falling victim to the Spurs' undefeated streak. Going into the series I thought for sure Durant & Co. could contend and shake things up. Now, I am not so sure.
Next, I thought my Waterworks Wednesday post could focus on the NBA Draft Lottery tonight (especially if the bleak Bobcats don't secure the number one pick).
Then, I had a fantastical (that's a word, right?) mis-encounter at my work today proving that in no way, shape or form do I possess any ounce of smoothness. Working as an HR Manager at a grocery store less than ten minutes from the ESPN headquarters, I have heard of token ESPN personalities gracing our aisles every once in a while. Today was my chance to chat it up with the man of ESPN... an athletically dressed Stuart Scott held the door for me! Unconvinced it was him... then convinced it really was... I was too indecisive to say anything. Booo to me.
But my true Waterworks came when I realized that I somehow missed the major announcement that Michelle Beadle is leaving ESPN for NBC! Sadly, I knew this day would come; her sassiness and sense of humor would ultimately lead her to bigger and better things, but still disappointing.
SportsNation will never be the same.
Be sure to catch Beads' last SportsNation on Friday!
