How about this weather for the state track meet?  AWESOME.  70’s, 80’s, sunny, little breeze, not sure mother nature could do much better.  Wasn’t it snowing like 2 weeks ago?  Hope it stays like this.

I’ve already got my SPF 50 out.  If I don’t wear sunscreen in the summer I turn in to a beet.  In the winter my skin resembles the actor from the movie ‘Powder.’

In his new book, Phil Jackson says Michael Jordan is/was a better basketball player than Kobe Bryant.  Is this surprising to anyone? Is there a person living who thinks Kobe is better than Jordan?  Seriously?  Kobe is a great player, top 10 all-time, but he’s not Jordan, and never will be.

Kentucky’s Nerlens Noel is projected to be the Top pick in the upcoming NBA Draft.  Noel is 6’10” 206 pounds.  Yes, you read that correctly, 206 pounds.  I’m 6’3″ 195, Noel is just 10 pounds heavier than me.  I have serious doubts about this guy.  Not only is he ‘twig-like’ but he’s coming off a torn ACL.  If I have the #1 pick I look elsewhere.  11 points, 10 rebs, 4 blocks a game for Noel, I’m not sold.

There’s only 9 horses running in Saturday’s Preakness.  Is that a low number?  I’m not aorb horse racing guy, but only 9 horses seems really low.  Orb is the heavy favorite.  Watch out for ‘Governor Charlie, 12/1, he will be in it till the end.

The I-Cubs and Padres (Tucson) combined for 35 hits Friday night.  Tucson holds on 9-8.  What a great night for baseball, except for the fact the I-Cubs lost.

moneyThe Powerball is $600 million.  If you win and take the cash option, that’s a cool $376 million.  Straight cash homie.  $600 million.  Man, that’s just nuts.

Dominos created a DVD that smells like pizza.  I’m hungry.
