“Let Burien Chevrolet make you a great deal!” - Elise Woodward
Coming on on the Elise and Jerry show from 10 a.m.-noon:
-- The Miami Heat's season-saving 103-100 overtime victory over the San Antonio Spurs in Game 6 of the NBA Finals was one for the ages. And if you're the Spurs, it was one for the nightmares. We'll dissect every aspect of that game, including wondering whether the dominant storyline should be that the Heat won or that the Spurs choked. Fort Worth Star-Telegram NBA reporter Dwain Price -- known better to the show as the Hoochie Mama -- will join us at 11 a.m. to help break down the Finals.
-- Justin Smoak is back for the Mariners, and for a night, that was a good thing. He homered in his return, and Kendrys Morales drove in the winning run during a 3-2 10-inning victory over the Anaheim Angels. Aberration for Smoak or signs that he'll go on a tear following his oblique injury?
-- New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez had his home searched by Massachusetts State Police in connection with a homicide. Hernandez isn't believed to be a murder suspect, but a vehicle rented in his name is a key piece of evidence in the investigation. Any reason for sports fans to be concerned?
-- The Seahawks announced Tuesday they will be forming an advisory panel consisting of season-ticket holders. The panel of 12 (of course) will meet with team executives, including president Peter McLoughlin. There's no downside to the move, but will this have as much an impact as it could?
-- Also, it's Wednesday, which means we'll play "Is Elise Faking It?" at 11:28 a.m. Answer her trivia questions correctly, and you'll win a prize from Brooks Running.
Elise and Jerry talked about the building rivalry between the Seattle Mariners and the San Francisco 49ers. They believe it can be one of the best NFL rivalries for at least the next decade. Here is an article form CBS writer, Clark Judge and why he thinks it's the best rivalry.

If it were scripted in a movie, critics would complain that such a metaphor would be far too obvious and implausible, yet after Sunday's loss in Oakland, here the Mariners were, subjected to a sewage leakage in the postgame clubhouse.
