Dallas Mavericks: The Dallas Mavericks will face the Oklahoma City Thunder in the Western Conference Finals. The Mavs will have home court advantage in the series. The winner of this series will play for the championship. *oooh, slight stomach churn* Game One will be Tuesday at 9 p.m. EST.
Dale Earnhardt Jr.: Today was another top 15 run for Dale (finishing 12th)...almost a top ten. He ran well the entire race. Though I know he would rather get those wins--and fans would LOVE to see him get those wins--racing consistently well is key, and the whole 88 team is doing that beautifully. He's still 4th in points. The wins are coming...I know it.
Survivor: Whether you like Boston Rob or not, the guy is undeniably the best to ever play this game.
A couple of my favorite players were coined heroes in the game of Survivor: Colby Donaldson and Rupert Boneham (who I always called Hagrid). They were labeled heroes because of their good-guy game play and amazing likability.
Boston Rob, however, has been permanently placed in the villain vat of Survivor players. And you know what? I like the guy. There have been some despicable players in the history of survivor, but Boston Rob simply isn't one of them. Why? I dunno. Maybe it's how he talks--he is who he is, whether in the game or in real life (an example of which occurred on Survivor: All Stars when he proposed to fellow contestant, and Survivor winner, Amber). I truly believe he can separate the game from real life, whereas I question the same of other contestants.
Normally, I don't like the it's just a game philosophy to excuse deplorable, deceitful game strategy. Personally, I could never play this game. Aside from the whole lack of soap, shampoo, razor, toothpaste, floss, and, well, a toilet, I absolutely could not play the game backstabbing others for money. Still, I like Rob. What's up with that?
You may not agree with his tactics, but you have to admit, the man is absolutely unique...not to mention entertaining and funny as heck.
10 years, 4 games, 117 days, and Boston Rob finally wins the game of Survivor. Congratulations to Boston Rob, a true game-player, the sole survivor, and the best to really play this game.
One thing is certain, Survivor won't be the same without Boston Rob.
