Lisa Hillary Sees a Rat, Gary Starts Tweeting

I mentioned the other day that CSN Caps reporter Lisa Hillary saw a rat during her live shot at Verizon Center following Game 2. The incident made some Canadian newspapers, but what we all wanted was the video. Tada. Some priceless footage of the incident is above, courtesy CSN. Amazing.

For those who have been confused, Games 4-7 will be shown exclusively on Comcast SportsNet in the D.C.-Baltimore markets. Games 2 and 3 were shown exclusively on Versus, which has the rights to two games in every second-round series but must black out in the teams' regular coverage areas for the remaining games.

Also amazing:

Gary and Coach L Tweet!

In recent days, both Gary Williams and Jim Larranaga have entered the world of Twitter. Follow Gary here, and Coach L here. Gary mostly has been "writing" about NBA games and ex-Terps, while Coach L is writing about life lessons and books. Somehow, the latter currently has more followers.

And seriously, there's no way Gary Williams typed this, is there? "Getting ready to watch more NBA playoff games. Lebron James is MVP and only 24 years old! amazing!"

Ryan Zimmerman Blogs!

He likes steakhouses, and Sushi Taro. Sigh.

Wale Does First Take!

D.C. rapper Wale (Ovechkin), the budding Caps fan and soon-to-be superstar, was on First Take this am. According to my friends and comrades at Mister Irrelevant, he said that Skip Bayless has "has severe brain issues," and that Ovechkin is 7-foot-7-inches tall. Good times.

Pecherov Visits Kiev!

Love that guy. He's a lot taller than these kids.

Well that's an easy one to figure out if you've seen the latest APRs from the two programs.....Coach L's fans can read.

I would have thought that Comcast SportsNet would try to suppress the footage, not deliberately release it.

Is this why Carol Maloney was doing some work at the VC during game 2? I hadn't seen her in a while and she suddenly popped up doing interviews during game 2.

West Ham United(H) VS Liverpool

Willhill 6.00 3.40 1.50
6.00 4.00 1.53

In those recent matches, Liverpool were playing pretty well, for they need to get 1st position in the league. What's more, with Gerrard's recovery, Liverpool can get 3 points in this matches without much effort.

West Ham need to save their 7th position, but they scored only one goal in the recent matches verses those four top teams.
