Great Moments in Blogging

Let the record show that on Thursday night I wrote that Ron Artest gets treated too harshly by the media. I praised him as a great athlete and a great entertainer.

A scant 24 hours later, Artest went on a rampage in the Detroit stands, leading to his suspension for the rest of the NBA season. That seems rather excessive to me, though I admit this is an unprecedented situation, so unprecedented penalties shouldn't be overly surprising. I just find it wrong that the Indiana Pacers' chances this season are basically gone because of this brawl.

Also, let the record reflect that tonight's AP recap of the Celtics win says, "That lead was too big to blow, even for Boston." Excuse me?
