It’s been a hectic few days. Pack your stuff and get out of Afghanistan cam the word Friday morning. I’m home ward bound and glad of it. In the meantime the real world spins on around me. The Los Angeles Lakers managed to run up to a 2 game lead in the NBA Finals. But the Orlando Magic have played tough, at least in the last two games, managing to get a victory on their home court. Now’s the time to gain some momentum and take it back to LA.
On the NHL Stanley Cup, the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Detroit Red Wings have put on a show and head into a penultimate Game 7, the beast of all games. I love NFL football but this Game 7 in this Stanley Cup series is going to be a beast Unfortunatey I’l probably be winging my way back across the ocean and wil miss it. Someone text me the action.
In criminal sports news reports are coming in that Tim Floyd of USC has resigned and that jeremy mayfield has tested positive for meth. If true, it’s sad. I remember Tim Floyd at UNO and he was a good coach. Competition got to him? As for Mayfield, well speed is speed and you get hooked on it. I hope these rumours aren’t true. I’d like to come back to a clean sports scene.Eric Drouant
