The basketball competition is also coming to an end in America so focus on the Pilgrim Nation NBA Finals and then move on to the baseball competition that just started and then end up on the ice. Bart Jan Westerduin and Paco Busteros Leon discuss the state of sports in the United States.
This year, the Boston Celtics and Golden State Warriors will compete for the title in the NBA Finals. A surprising final, because both teams were definitely not favorites. The Celtics battled their way through the playoffs with two seven-game series. In doing so, they eliminated the defending champion Milwaukee Bucks. The Warriors had it relatively easier in the series, needing slightly fewer games to reach the Finals.
What is remarkable about both teams is that they are a good mix of young and old and not a stellar team. Paco and Bart Gunn predicted that the Golden State Warriors would win the title in six games.
After the classic pitch (Hip Hop Hooray – Naughty by Nature), attention turned to Major League Baseball. The first two months of the season are over. Who are the good and the bad and how do the Dutch do it. Jurickson Profar is currently playing his best season with the San Diego Padres. Here he shows great fielding moves and is good and powerful at the bat and is in the starting line-up every game. Kenley Jansen remains undefeated with his team the Atlanta Braves also doing well in the league.
In the second half of the Pilgrim Nation, they switched to the ice, because the NHL playoffs also began. The histories and histories of the four semifinal teams were discussed. With attention also to slogans, which are among the most beautiful professional sports, according to the presenters. So is the NHL Winterclassic, the game played every year outdoors.
The final episode of Ummat Al-Hajj Season will air on Wednesday, June 29th.
