I am a woman. I would be more than happy to have more money in my paycheck. Too bad the Paycheck Fairness Act won't do that for me. Who wants "equality" if it comes because everyone makes less money?

The opener of this Western Conference First Round series will be hard to top from an entertainment standpoint.

Each team has positives to take into the next meeting.
