Neil Best leaves no stone unturned in the world of sports media.

May 28, 2008, was one heck of a sports night

It's time for us to part, as I will be spending the rest of the day producing a column for Friday's newspaper.

But let me leave you with this: As a cranky, jaded old sportswriter, I find I have less passion for actually watching games than I used to.

Then comes a night like Wednesday, when the Stanley Cup finals at last lived up to their billing, the NBA produced a taut finish between two league powers, the Mets came back from deficits in both the ninth and 12th innings to (maybe, perhaps, theoretically) get themselves on the right track and the Yankees fashioned perhaps their final blueprint victory of the season: Pettitte, Joba, Mariano.

That's why we all keep wasting so much of our time and brain capacity on this stuff.
