Game 4: Spurs 93, Grizzlies 86: Parker’s 37 Carry Spurs to Sweep and Finals nyti.ms/12dZt1R
Now its onto the NBA Finals where the Spurs are poised 2 win their 5th championship under the best coach in pro bball, Greg "Pops" Popovich!
The Grizz are one tough ballclub with their Bigs.
Though I picked the San Antonio Spurs to win the best of 7 series against the Memphis Grizzlies, I honestly didn't expect them to sweep it.
" 'Cause there ain't no doubt I love this land, God bless the USA!" Amen! youtube.com/watch?v=RINqib…
"and I won't forget the men who died to give that right to me & I gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today..." -- #MusicMonday
I especially love this part of Greenwood's lyrics: "And I'm proud to be an American, where at least I know I'm free..." --
Penned and sung by country music artist Lee Greenwood, "God Bless the USA" was originally released in the 80s and became popular after 9/11.

The dollars raised by the Charity Walk are going to help many local non-profit organizations on each of the respective islands big time!
Kudos to the thousands of walkers, volunteers, and sponsors who participated on Kauai, Molokai, Lanai, Maui and Hawaii Island.
As I jokingly say, it's the one Charity Walk where you can actually gain weight bc of the 'onolicious grinds at each station along the route
Nearly 15,000 ppl walked statewide to help raise $1.67M+ in the 35th annual HI Lodging & Tourism Assn #CharityWalk
