So, I think the Espy awards are a little silly. Not my thing, and no, I didn’t watch.
However, I have to give them some credit for Landon Donovan winning the “Best Moment” award for the goal against Algeria to win their group.
I think I mentioned this before: that goal was the best sports moment I’ve witnessed in my 40 years, and elicited the most emotional response from me to any sporting event. It’s why we watch sports, and it’s why the World Cup is the greatest sports event on the planet.
I’m still mostly off the grid this week, blogging may resume on Saturday. Getting in some much needed rest and relaxation time with J.
A couple of recent notes:
The stimulus hasn’t worked, so clearly, we need to do more of it. Europe, on the other hand, appears to have finally learned their lesson.
The US soccer team got as far as they should have. A decent squad, but not in the top 8.
Providence is a cool little town. Waterfire is impressive, both as an installation and as a demonstration of how we don’t need the government to do these things. Not really much of a foodie town, but we did miss a couple of places that may have been good on a poor recommendation.
See you later!
