I guess that our lead story is about the minicamp had over the weekend. David White wrote about minicamp closing over in the Silver and Black Blog and three rookies did not participate due to fatigue. Also, Comcast SportsNet has posted new videos about the Raiders in minicamp. There is no direct link, so you have to scroll down, select "Raiders" from the group of teams and then there are small videos. The latest videos feature Lorenzo Neal and Nnamdi Asomugha.
There are more minicamp photos up and you can check them out by clicking that link.
By way of Yahoo! Sports, there is an article up on Jeff Garcia adjusting to his new role with the Oakland Raiders.
David White has written an article on cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha concerning JaMarcus Russell, money and some other things.
Here are my quick-hitting thoughts:
- Whoa! What was that, Houston? The Rockets defeated the Lakers by a final score 99-87 to nod the series up 2-2, but the close was no indicator on how badly Houston destroyed Los Angeles. They jumped out to a 17-4 lead and even had a 70-45 advantage at one point. They did it without All-Star center Yao Ming as well. It was a total disater from one end and total joy from the other. That big win
- Big Baby's big-time jump shot as time expired gave the Boston Celtics a 95-94 victory over the Magic in Orlando. The series is now tied 2-2 just like the Rockets-Lakers series. Fenway Park went nuts after Glen Davis sunk it from the left wing on a pass frm Paul Pierce.
- The private sector has signed on for health care reform. President Obama will announce Monday that he has secured the commitment of several industry groups to do their part to rein in the growth in health care costs.
