Weekend Sports Wrap-Up
It was an interesting weekend for the discerning Sportsman. Friday evening I attended the boxing matches at Resorts Casino in Atlantic City. The Card was presented by KEA boxing and featured a solid 2nd round KO by Juan"The Beast" Rodriguez. The Beast caught opponent Crabtree on the chin and dispatched the kid to the canvas...he was out cold for about 30 seconds and the fight was over. There were several other competitive and entertaining bouts on the card. Unfortunately, after the fights I fared about as well as Crabtree on the Craps table and was KO'd by the Croupier's call of "Seven Out" more times than I would like to admit.
Saturday showed Steeplechase fans a rousing victory by Twill DO in the Maryland Hunt Cup. I could not attend the races but followed closely on line. This Race meet offers only the one event so I find it hard to justify the drive down to Maryland.
The weekend culminated with Game 1 of the Flyers v. Devils in the Stanley Cup playoffs. Danny Briere scored an overtime which caused my son and I to leap from the couch cheering...nothing quite as exciting as an OT win in play off hockey.
In addition, Lehigh beat Colgate on Saturday to capture the Patriot League Championship and perhaps a bid the the big NCAA tournament.
