Sweet Christmas Revenge

LeBron and the Cavs edged out the Wiz on Christmas Day. But that was then. This is now. Wizards/Zephyrs 109, King James’ Cavaliers 101!

Nonetheless, Preacher’s team at this point is the Caps. Ice hockey is a great sport. The Caps are good. Plus, they are funny.

close-to-homePretty soon it will be NHL play-off time.

Before then, they will play the NCAA Final Four in a football stadium. Bad idea–the football stadium thing, I mean.

If Michigan State doesn’t win, I hope Villanova wins.

Meanwhile, perhaps you are looking for a peaceful, quiet spot for meditation on the great mystery of life. I have been reading Annie Dillard’s For the Time Being, which occasions a great deal of reflection. I also read a book by Joseph Pieper I want to tell you about, but that is going to have to wait until after Easter…

Anyway, one of the best quiet spots is: the courtyard of the Freer Gallery on the Mall in Washington.

Here is a beautiful work of art that hangs in the Freer Gallery:

  1. Great to see you giving props to the Capitals! If there is room for another icon showing the teams you like, you should add the Caps “Weagle”. Here’s another link for you:


    It’s the Caps game-opening video; Michelle and I participated in the video shoot and she is in the front row directly facing Ovie… she’s the one holding the camera up!
