Watching this race on TV from the comfort of my living room was enjoyable. After so many days of rain the weather in Indianapolis was beautiful today, and the road course at the Brickyard was in fine condition.
Many years ago I watched the F1 cars racing on this course from a seat in the infield bleachers, and the warm memories of that day came back.
Of course, the big race there will be the Indy 500 run later this month. Watching that will bring back happy memories, too. And today’s Indy Car Grand Prix was a great warmup for that.
The good: Even though Kawhi Leonard didn’t play last night, my Spurs beat the Houston Rockets. Next up will be the Western Conference Championship Series. We meet the Golden State Warriors on Sunday afternoon to start that 7-game series.
The bad: The relief from my dry, hacking cough is slow in coming. I’m still taking the medicine and drinking lots of water, and there are actually periods of time that are coughing-free, but those are punctuated by other periods of nonproductive dry coughs. So the healing and recovery continues. Hopefully I’ll be able to shake this darned thing over the weekend.
After several years of San Antonio Spurs fanship I’ve come to understand that one of the very few things Coach Pop values more than winning is the health of his players.
At this moment in time we’ve lost Tony Parker for the rest of the season (if not longer) due to a leg injured in a recent game. And now Kawhi Leonard is listed as “questionable” for tonight’s game against the Houston Rockets due to an ankle injury suffered in the 4th quarter of Tuesday’s game. Kawhi practiced with the team this morning and he says he wants to play tonight, but… The gametime decision will belong to Coach Pop.
Lord, I hope my Spurs win tonight. And I honestly don’t think we can win without Kawhi. So I really, REALLY hope he plays!
Time Tebow hits a home run in his first time at bat as a professional baseball player.
There is absolutely no reason for Tom Brady to make any kind of explanation for the fact that he and Donald Trump may be friends. Heck, I’d be mighty proud of the fact if I was a friend of either of those guys. Those folks at USA Today are nuts!
Laptop, tablet, peanuts, and coffee are set up next to the recliner. Cowboys and Ravens are playing the afternoon’s first game. Hoping Dak and the Boys can pull off another win. #GoCowboys!
Thanks to the American Sports Network I’ve got exciting college football to watch all day long pulled in OTA (Over The Air) from a little table-top antenna connected to the TV.
This recently released video clip from Death Wish Coffee combines two of my favorite things: cycling (now only a fond memory), and Death Wish Coffee.
Many years and many pounds ago I was an avid cyclist. Even today I can close my eyes and easily and vividly recall so many moments of riding along the back roads of Southern Indiana.
And Death Wish Coffee? Ha! Ask anybody. I’ve always got some close by! 🙂
