Once again, I have been delinquent in my blogging, so here are 10 quick thoughts:
  • What is it with all the no-hitters this year? Ublado Jimenez had a no-no, perfect games by Dallas Braden and Roy Halladay, and the Imperfect Perfect Game by Armando Gallaraga. And it's only the middle of June.
  • Has there ever been a more classy, sportsman-like reaction by a player getting screwed by a bad call than Gallaraga? Jim Joyce cost him a perfect game, and he said "Nobody's perfect." Just amazingly cool.
  • Jeremy Roenick may never appear as an NHL analyst again (except in Chicago). Did you see him get all teary when the Black Hawks won the Stanley Cup? Here's the clip. The best part is Mike Milbury's reaction.

  • To be honest, though, I wasn't even aware hockey was still going on until I heard someone mention on the radio that game 7 of the Stanley Cup finals was last night. It seems like the Bruins blew that 3-0 lead about six months ago.
  • When people talk about how quickly kids grow up, they aren't just spouting a cliche. I am truly amazed that J. is done with Little League and R. is going to middle school next year.
  • If Paul Pierce, Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett and Rajon Rondo have a good game at the same time, the Celtics might beat the Lakers by 40.
  • Got a trailer hitch put on the minivan so that we can attach our bike rack and bring our bikes to Vermont this summer. Really looking forward to a couple of family rides while we're there.
  • Stephen Strasburg's first start for the Nationals lived up to the hype. 7 innings, 14 K's, including the last 7 in a row. Yes, it was the Pirates, but it was still pretty amazing. The thing that I found most impressive while watching on MLB Network was how effortless it seemed to be for him to throw a 99 MPH fastball on the black at the knees. If he stays healthy, Strasburg could be one of the great superstars in the game for the next 15 years or so. If he doesn't, he could be Kerry Wood.
  • I admit it. I'm a total Gleek.
  • I really don't need to see another Grown Ups movie promo during the NBA Finals.
