It is Opening Day here in Philadelphia and spirits and confidence are extremely high for our Phillies.We have what could likely be the best pitching staff ever assembled.Yes we have injuries to Chase Utley and Lidge and Polanco...so there are some question marks. Nevertheless, opposing players will have a hard time in the batter's box this season.
On another sporting note, my Welterweight takes to the ring this evening for a 6 round tilt against Mike Demby. About 20 of the guys will be attending...including D.M. (who writes the splendid blog Brohammas) Bro is a transplanted Utah guy living here in Philly. I was supposed to meet him and Tintin of Trad fame a few months ago when they planned a meeting but work got in the way. I am looking forward to meeting him tonite. I hope he wears flame retardant clothes!
Lastly, my son scored 2 goals in the opening game of his Middle School's Lacrosse season. The photo above is not him...but it is nearly excatly how the shot looked on the second goal in form and action. He actually came damn close to a Hat-trick but could not find the handle in the crease on the 3rd. My head almost exploded with pride as I attended the game and was standing on the sidelines.
Here's hoping JMW's Kentucky team does well this weekend in NCAA action...she writes " A Place to Dwell" and I am very fond of her Blog and her perspective.
