Staying Busy

 This weekend found me with a full slate of spectating and activity. Friday night I went to the fights at Temple University's Liacouras center for the USBA heavyweight title fight. I could write paragraphs about the main event and the undercard...but I do have a day job. Suffice it to say the evening was a fine spectacle of the sweet science...hard fought bouts and great athletic perseverance; some of the best boxing I have seen in a while.
 I also had the pleasure of watching my son play Rugby. I am still learning the game but I have sufficient novice knowledge to enjoy watching the sport.
 Then it was down to Salem County, New Jersey for a round of Sporting Clays with my buddy Jay.
 I have been shooting a fair amount of trap and skeet lately, but the Sporting Clay field can be humbling. It was on this trip as I shot far below my normal average. Perhaps the beers and cocktails and late night at the fights had some effect on my hand- least that is what I am telling myself.
It was an enjoyable weekend. Unlike next weekend...which will likely be taken up with yard work and Spring clean up.

I've been tempted by the local Fish and Game club's Sporting Clays courses, but I've not yet succumbed. I imagine I'd likely waste most of my limited ammo and embarrass myself thoroughly in the process. Maybe one of these days I'll nut up and try it....
