That's a Tommy Point!!

From Bill Simmon's running diary of the Dude matchup between the Rockets and the Celtics last night:
9:42 -- Coming out of commercial, we see a replay of Yao's finger getting bent back on a rebound and Yao screaming in pain, followed by Gorman reporting that Yao went to the locker room to get it checked out, then Tommy joking, "That was his chopstick finger, too, he may not be able to eat anymore!" and Gorman changing the subject as fast as humanly possible.
(The lesson, as always: It's never dull when anyone older than 70 is allowed near a microphone during a sporting event.)
Now if Yao starts losing weight at an alarming rate over the next few weeks, we'll know why

This is the one problem with the Sports Guy -- with all due respect to both dudes, is there anyone in America interested in reading a diary of him watching a Rockets/Celtics game ON TV? It's one thing when he'd go to Clippers game. That was kind of neat the last few years because it was a scrappy underdog. But the Celtics are irrelevant, in any regular season game, especially one not seen live.
