Its been a great, poor and ugly kind of week for me.

I hit the trifecta at Pimlico--thats good.

My Little League young ones went 0-3 with Coach Reavy in attendance--thats poor.

And Wednesday evening, upon hearing of the truth demise of my dawg, Elliot Yamin, I was both sad to listen to the news and disappointed in the realization that I had just watched 12 direct periods of American Idol, spanning two months--thats...well, you receive the point.

Luckily for me, however, the sports world is never without its good, poor and ugly times also.

Listed here are the high (and low )lights of-the week thats handed.

The Good:

Todd Bonds 714th homerun ball--for Tyler Snyder, it was caught by the guy who. Surely the eBay--er, Bay Area-- loyal are happy with their slugger, and could even open their checkbooks to produce a bid for your blast. To read additional information, consider taking a gaze at: But, if you ask me, nothing tells the story more beautifully than these four words uttered by Tyler, the soon-to-be rich Athletics fan (due to Bonds), after the game: I hate that guy.

The NBA play-offs. While the highlight of my basketball season is undoubtedly the NBA draft, I cant help but wonder at the fantastic series that have been performed around this point. It certainly has made me forget that the NHL is o-n strike. (Editors note: Kevin doesnt have the OLN channel.)

After losing five right, the Phillies finally won.

The Bad:

After falling five immediately, the Phillies finally won.

Cubs catcher, Michael Barrett, punched AJ Pierzynski following a crash at home plate. It is a bad thing only because I think when giving the blow Barrett could have hurt his hand.

NBC began broadcast episodes of the National Heads-Up Poker Championship. Had ESPN not decided to air about 300 episodes of World Series of Poker competitions on a consistent cycle on ESPN routes 1thru 6 this might be a positive thing. This might be great if the World Poker Tour and Celebrity Poker Who Gives a Crap werent currently force-feeding its addictive felt-and-clay-chip abundant appeal down my throat.Instead, its overkill. Perhaps not because I hate watching poker shows o-n TV, but because I watch these. And I want my life back.

The Ugly:

Just one single thing...

Kobes clothing on 'In the NBA' last Wednesday. Because nothing says neighborhood cred just like a powder-blue sweater vest.
