1. Who will play for and win the NBA championship?
Letasky: The Celtics will topple the Warriors in seven games.
Welsch: The Milwaukee Bucks will win in a Game 7 that is watched by exactly 11 people outside of Wisconsin.
Flores: Warriors over Bucks in 6.
Scherting: Actually, Jeff, there will be 12 people watching. You forgot to count me.
Rachac: Let's go Nuggets!
2. If you were able to name a PBR bull, what would it be?
Letasky: K-U-S-E-K in honor of longtime Gazette rodeo writer Joe Kusek.
Welsch: Sue. This world is tough and if a bull's gonna make it he's gotta be tough. He can thank me later for the gravel in his gut and the spit in his eye.
Flores: Buckaloo. It's the last name of NFR team roper Bubba Buckaloo, it features the word "buck" and it's incredibly fun to say.
Rachac: Al Gore.
3. In golf there have been a few heirs apparent to Tiger Woods, but is there truly one at this time?
Letasky: Not likely. It takes a very special and amazing person to make an incredible run like Tiger.
Welsch: Only if the Commander in Cheat quits his day job, joins the tour and employs the same strategies that won him 18 club championships.
Flores: Tiger has transcended the sport. Meanwhile, no young golfer has more than four major titles. It's gonna be a while before someone approaches his level.
Scherting: That's a big ask, so, no. And I'm not sure given today's sporting climate if there ever will be an 'heir apparent' to Tiger.
Rachac: Hold the phone on that. Have you seen the Masters leaderboard?
4. It's early, but are the Mariners a legitimate playoff contender?
Letasky: With the way the Yankees are playing, they won't be making it so that opens up a spot for somebody. Why not the Mariners?
Welsch: The magic pills have to run out some time. Don't they?
Flores: I would be shocked, but the AL's second wild card spot should be up for grabs, so playoffs aren't not entirely out of the question.
Scherting: Two former Mustangs — Edwin Encarnacion and Jay Bruce — have been instrumental in their amazing start. It's a start that doesn't seem sustainable, however.
Rachac: You're right. It's definitely early.
5. Have you recently, or do you plan on, taking in a movie at the Babcock Theatre?
Letasky: No, but like Rachac I remember watching movies there as a kid. Now, if they bring live boxing back to the Babcock I'll be there.
Welsch: Haven't been to a theater in years, but if that were to change the Babcock would be at the top of the list.
Flores: Never been, but I might swing by later this month if it's showing "Avengers: Endgame."
Scherting: Would like to. Have already missed a couple films that we would have liked to see there. We're not the best planners, however.
Rachac: Suppose so. Probably should. Been way too long. Back To The Future 2? Ancient history.
