That's what the Warriors did against the Portland Trail Blazers, sweeping their first-round series with a win Monday night. It was very much expected, and now it's onto the Western Conference semifinals for them. But there's something more important going on with coach Steve Kerr, who didn't coach in Games 3 and 4 of the series because of lingering issues from two back surgeries in 2015.
Kerr is in so much pain that he's decided he can't coach the Warriors during games right now -- and won't come back until feels better. Put it this way: It looks like it's possible the Warriors won't have Kerr on the sidelines from this point on.
The San Francisco Giants are off to a terrible start, and it just got worse because Madison Bumgarner injured himself riding a dirt bike. The act was selfish, irresponsible, a bad decision, short-sighted, immature and just plain stupid -- or so most people say.
Hey, this guy is one of the best pitchers in baseball, so he'll ride a dirt bike any time he wants -- and there plenty of teams that would be more than happy to let him do it.
Lastly, bad time for BART, with this takeover robbery at the West Oakland station. Haven't seen anything like that before and hopefully we won't again. Also, Steinmetz has a BART/Clipper card dilemma if anyone can help.
