Just a few observations from the sports world this morning, the first one from my “I told you so” file…
Two of the biggest events in all of sports get underway today…
Forget Pictures, sometimes silence is worth a thousand words. There was a lot of loud silence in the sports world yesterday.
Ready or not, here comes the World Cup soccer tournament in Brazil. The U.S. team arrived yesterday, at an airport that is about one third operational, before needing a military, police and private security escort to safely check in at their hotel.
I won’t get into the name calling of California Chrome principle owner Steve Coburn that has resulted from his tirade about Saturday’s running of the Belmont Stakes, you know the cute little plays on words about the name of his ownership group, “Dumb Ass Partners”.
We’ve all seen shiny new items we really wanted and figured, if we stretched a bit, we could afford them.
My wife and I received one of those gratifying phone calls last week, the one from your kid that demonstrates their own life experience caused them to gain a greater appreciation for what you did for them.
The last time the New York Rangers reached the Stanley Cup Final their only connection to us was their head to head competition with the Boston Bruins as the team most hated by Hartford hockey fans. 20 years later the Rangers are headed back to the final and this time they have our fingerprints all over them.
There’s nothing like a good party, and nobody knows how to celebrate better than the Boston Red Sox. They’ve already thrown a half dozen pre game suarees at Fenway this year and the season’s not even two months old.
I’m not going to pull a Jack Nicholson on you and tell you, “You can’t handle the truth”, it’s just that you don’t have the patience for it.
