Dry, windy, and cool over the weekend.
Dodged the drizzle on Friday at Delphos Jefferson, and got the game in there...Saturday morning Sam and I headed for Bascom(about 100 miles) and Hopewell-Loudon High School for the opening round of the D4 Sectional...couple of "blow-outs"...22-9 and 20-0...the losing teams were just starting or re-starting their programs and were no matches for the upper seeded teams. The winds were hacking at 40 mph or so, and a cloudy, cool, breeze, was present throughout the day.
Yesterday we headed over to sister Marty's place and had a cook out with mom and Mike, and the Hemmelgarn family....got to admit I was still bushed from the wind and 5 hour double header on Saturday...so we stayed a couple of hours, came home a vegged out.
In other weekend happenings:
The IHL Fort Wayne Komets won their second straight "Turner Cup" on Friday night defeated Muskegon and winning the best of 7 finals 4 games to 1. In the NHL a couple of good fights and a nasty "sucker punch" highlighted the days activities...which saw Boston(down 3 games to 2) and Detroit(up 3-2) win on Sunday...Pittsburgh defeated Washington Saturday to go up 3-2, and Chicago with a 3-2 over Vancouver plays at home tonight.
The Cincinnati Reds had a good weekend against the Division leading Cards...winning 2 of 3 to stay within striking distance of first place, now 2 1/2 games out.
Can you tell I'm stretching to come up with material on this Monday morning?
I guess I could rip on our illegal African born President, or the whole damn gang in Washington...but I'm sick of the whole mess, and will take a day or 2 off politics.
Hey Postage Stamps go up another 2 cents to 44 cents a pop today...glad we got a few of the "forever" stamps left.
You know what? I've got a board meeting to attend at 11:30 this morning, have to leave for a game at 3pm for a game north to Continental, and some bills to pay.....I'll rack my brain, and try to come up with something of substance for tomorrow...
