Miami Heat – Champions

DALLAS – JUNE 20: The Miami Heat celebrate winning the NBA Championship after their 95-92 win against the Dallas Mavericks in Game Six of the 2006 NBA Finals June 20, 2006 at American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas.

I don’t know where this guy was, but his crazy car-horn-blowing schenanigans kept me from going to sleeping comfortably.

Something worth celebrating

Juneteenth. A portmanteau of the words June and nineteenth.

it was on June 19th (1965) that the Union soldiers, led by Major General Gordon Granger, landed at Galveston, Texas with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free. Note that this was two and a half years after President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation – which had become official January 1, 1863. The Emancipation Proclamation had little impact on the Texans due to the minimal number of Union troops to enforce the new Executive order. However, with the surrender of General Lee in April of 1865, and the arrival of General Granger’s regiment, the forces were finally strong enough to influence and overcome the resistance.

Ok. That was mostly Thursday and Friday.

The Heat

So the Heat are seating pretty, waiting for either the Cleveland Cavaliers or The Detroits Pistons. I think playing Detroit will be tough. If the Heat beats them, they might win the whole thing. I would love to see Lebron and Company(Cleveland) advance, but I think we can beat them in 5 games.
