The best first kiss video ever. LeBron again collapses at crunch time. And Happy 25th, Ferris Bueller

Follow me on Twitter here.

I’m just going on record and saying this is a video you’ll be sending along to your friends and family. It may be the cutest thing ever. Five-year-olds Elliott and Bowie share their first kiss; she’s literally the girl next door and, well, just watch.
My favorite part is at :53, the expression on his face is priceless.

**Another scintillating game in the NBA Finals Thursday night. Another dramatic Dallas win. The Miami Heat are now one game away from elimination and the biggest disappointment in South Beach since NBC cancelled “Miami Vice.”
Some quick-hit thoughts from Game 5…

— This is a legacy-altering series for Mr. LeBron James. Once again, he came up incredibly small in the fourth quarter of one of these games. He now has ELEVEN points in five games in the last period, the most important one. It’s almost unfathomable; he was so good in the clutch for the first seven years of his career in Cleveland.
Is the pressure getting to him? Something in his personal life? Is he sick or hurt? Something is seriously wrong here.

— Writing this sentence 15 minutes after the last one. My boy Tony, the biggest LeBron fan I know, is seriously depressed. We agree this series is a permanent stain on his reputation if the Heat lose. I tell Tony it’s not over, the Heat can win in 7.
He doesn’t believe me.
— As a Jason Kidd fan for two decades now, I’m overjoyed to see him playing so well and  that he’s so close to a title. I got such joy watching him bring my beloved New Jersey Nets to the NBA Finals two straight years. One of the greatest players ever deserves a ring.

— Said this on Twitter last night: I’m now genuinely surprised when Dirk Nowitzki misses a shot.

— This has been a sensational series. Maybe the best I’ve seen in 20 years. Go Mavs.

**Finally, we love anniversaries here at Wide World of Stuff. And 25 years ago Thursday, a movie that my generation knows by heart was first released.

Take it away, Ferris…
