Weekend Interruption

I normally don't post at this time of the day on a Saturday, but I saw this this morning and it made me sad.

Spokeswoman says Oscar-winning superstar icon has succumbed to cancer

I am a huge Newman fan and he was special. I admired the fact that he and Joanne Woodard remained married despite the Hollywood "tradition". They are special and I am happy that they appeared in movies together and shared such fulfilling lives.

On a happy note, my team won last night.

McCarville, Liberty halt Detroit in Game 1

NEW YORK 60, DETROIT 56: Former Gopher Janel McCarville had 17 points and Shameka Christon had 11 points and 11 rebounds to help the Liberty hold off the Shock in Friday's Eastern Conference finals opener in New York.

Deanna Nolan scored 11 of her 22 points in the final 3 minutes and Katie Smith had 13 points for the Shock. Nolan had two three-pointers and hit three free throws in the final stretch to keep Detroit close but missed a potential tying three-pointer with about 10 seconds left.

New York's Erin Thorn sealed the win with five points in the final minute. The best-of-three series shifts to Eastern Michigan University in Ypsilanti for Game 2 on Sunday.
