Congrats to Will Power

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.

Good News, Bad News

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.

Go Spurs Go!!

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!

No, no, no he doesn’t!

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!
