It’s been a glorious three weeks. the month of June has seen me return from Iraq on R & R, get a daughter married, and celebrate two of my kid’s birthdays. It’s also reaffirmed my marriage and made me appreciate my family all the more.
I know it’s been tough for you not to be able to read my witty outlay so let’s see what else has happened. In the NBA the Boston Celtics overcame some sloppy play to win a title that’s eluded them for many years. I have to say, the rest of the country hates Maine. First the Patriots, now they’ve got a Celtics team that could go on a streak.
Wimbledon is in full swing with the Williams sisters knocking them off right and left. Will there be a Serena – Venus matchup in the finals? On the men’s side Roger Federer is still in good shape. The U.S. now sucks in tennis. My feeling is that $4 a gallon gas is preventing us from getting to the courts for practice. Just a thought.
A peek at NASCAR shows Kyle Busch still kicking butt. Dale earnhardt fans finally got a victory. July looks like a great month with the Allstate 400 at the Brickyard and the Pennsylvania 500 on the list.
The MLB seeks the answer to this question: Can the New York Yankees make a run at it and force a Yankees – Red Sox classically historical rivalry ridden showdown at the end of the year. Last I looked the Yankees were at the bottom of the division. Now they’ve moved up a couple notches and are within striking distance. See what spending 150 gazillion dollars a year will get you?
Next Up: We begin our annual review of the NFL where Pacman wants a name change, Al Davis spends and spends and spends, the New England Patriots get a cupcake schedule, and Marshawn Lynch didn’t know he hit anyone. Seriously. That’s what his lawyer told him to say. Also, Javon Walker is now the official Oakland Raiders Las Vegas tour guide and NFL commissioner Roger Goodel has floated the idea that maybe, just maybe, rookies are paid too much.
