My teams are out.
Now I have to come up with more subject matter. Yikes.
…By a strange co-inky-dink, a priest friend of mine from the Pittsburgh area is visiting this week.
Soon, he will return to the land of gleeful Penguins people. He promised that he would speak to them about our pain.
…Did you know that, back in the late 19th century, the borough of Brooklyn was thick with trolley cars?
There were so many trolley car lines in Brooklyn that Manhattanites called their Brooklyn neighbors ‘trolley dodgers.’
This is the origin of the name of Manny Ramirez’s team…
Another question I have is: Why does Notre Dame University hold its graduation ceremony on Sunday? I thought college graduations were customarily held on Saturday, Sunday being the sabbath and a holy day…
…Finally, let’s discuss:
Things had gotten so bad (3-13 record) that the Wizards decided to come in disguise to play the Lakers at the Verizon Center last night.
Then, amazingly, they almost beat my man Kobe and Co.!
Almost. The Wizards/Zephyrs are now 3-14. Kobe saved the game for the Lakers after a “valiant effort” in the fourth-quarter by the Wiz, as Phil Chenier put it.
