    If the Celtics win tonight, which one will get bigger play in your rag?

    U.S. Open, because our deadline is 11:30 and we're not holding for the NBA.

    Open for early, we'll replate if the Celtics win.

    Open. With a possible early deadline because of the flooding, we can't wait too long tonight.

    Being in Central time they've given us just enough cushion to get in something that holds to the front.

    Although now I have even more problems since Dale Jr. finally won. More of our readers probably care about that than Tiger or the Celtics.

    U.S. Open. Golf is big here, especially right now.

    Yeah, here in redneck-land, we're definitely getting Dale Jr. out front. Nobody seems to care about NBA coverage here. We haven't had a Finals game yet, and not one complaint.

    Deadline forces us to go with Open. But on a night like this we try to balance it as best we can, which is hard. Open is centerpiece, with Finals getting played on top. I hate layouts (and nights) like this...deadline forces your hand, and now if the Lakers win, neither one is really all that big a deal although I really think the next day Open playoff loses some of the luster a Sunday finish provides.

    And yeah, around here, the NBA Finals has been our least read stuff (according to our website anyway)

    We're going with the NBA finals because we can make deadline for it. But if LA doesn't blow this lead, and builds a huge lead, I might have to go with the Open.

    Good freakin' question, considering we've got guys at both and I'm off.

    Celtics if they win it. Otherwise, it's the Open.

    I'm off, but I'm 99% sure the Open will be our cover.
