The Bruins and Blackhawks continue their Stanley Cup Finals series tonight, but yesterday another hockey championship reached its end. The Grand Rapids Griffins defeated the Syracuse Crunch, 5-2, to win its first Calder Cup.

Last night, the Spurs were one half away from claiming their fifth NBA championship. Tim Duncan was on fire, Miami's Big Three were invisible.

Even some Heat fans had given up hope — hundreds left early. To beat traffic.
For 67 years, teams from around the globe have come to Williamsport, PA, to compete in the Little League World Series. But Australia was one country that never fielded a team in the tournament. Until now.
On Wednesday, June 5, the Perth Metro Central Little League from Perth, Australia, became the first team to earn a berth in the Little League World Series. Perth Metro punched its ticket to Williamsport by winning the first-ever Australia Region Tournament in Queensland, Australia.
