One More Time

Today at 10:30 EST I check into the hospital for a very short stay (I hope) as the vascular surgeon will be cleaning out my right corraded artery and putting yet another stent in my beautiful brown body. That makes a total of 9 and three of those were lost to amputation. I know IContinue reading “One More Time”

Back for Good

What a trip. It started out on July 18th in the west valley of Phoenix, Arizona and culminated on September 14th. We are now new citizens of a little town in southern Ohio called Miamisburg. A golf course less than a mile down the road. The slow moving Miami River (Greater or Little Miami toContinue reading “Back for Good”

Sports Wrap-up

We can’t mention the week without The Return to Old Trafford of favorite son Cristiano Ronaldo. But since he will not play until next weekend, enough about that. Except I just saw an ad that USA picked up the game for US distribution so now I am positive that number 7 will be in theContinue reading “Sports Wrap-up”

Summer Sports Report

As we put Independence Day in the rear-view mirror and power through summer, let’s see where we are in the sports world. Football I already covered the disappointing European Championship final, and I can’t wait for the start of the Premier League on August 14th. I was very happy to see the tears of elationContinue reading “Summer Sports Report”

The Week in Sports

England look like they are running in cement boots. I mean, in the Premier League, it is commonplace to see Harry Kane streaking through and past defensive schemes to launch yet another shot on goal. Why is Gareth Southampton sitting Marcus Rashford? Fresh young legs. Fast. Where is the pure #9 lethal striker whose onlyContinue reading “The Week in Sports”

I Hate Losing

I’ve said it before. I just sat through a disgusting display by the Manchester United Football Club. I am a Red through and through, but when it takes 10 penalty shots to lose to a substandard team from Spain, we just don’t have the team we want or need to represent Old Trafford and theContinue reading “I Hate Losing”

Is NOTHING Sacred?

Mondays I play a song. Here is an Eagles song. An unruly crowd. Out of control people desecrating an iconic place. Old Trafford, the holiest of places in English football. What the fuck is the matter with you? Who do you think you are, Americans? I much prefer soccer (football) hooligans to the destructive idiotsContinue reading “Is NOTHING Sacred?”

Premier League

My beloved Manchester United is teasing me once again. 2017 was the last time the Reds won silver. Even though it was “only” the Europa League Cup and not one of the big three of a “treble.” FA Cup. I love watching the Football Association Cup because it is like the old Indiana State HighContinue reading “Premier League”
