The Miami Heat are the 2013 NBA Champions as they beat the San Antonio Spurs 95-88 in Game 7 of the NBA Finals last night.  LeBron James had 37 points, 12 rebounds and was named the Finals MVP for the 2nd year in a row.  The Heat became the NBA’s first repeat champions since the Lakers in 2009-10, and the first team to beat the Spurs in the NBA Finals.

MLB….

The Cardinals beat the Cubs again, this time 6 – 1 behind Lance Lynn’s pitching and Matt Holiday’s homer and 2 RBIs.

and the White Sox lost to the Twins 8 – 4


Soccer….

Abby Wambach is now the greatest female goal scorer in international soccer.  Wambach scored four times in the first half to break Mia Hamm’s record for international career goals in a 5-0 victory over South Korea on Thursday night.
