... to get back into sports blogging.
1. The Stanley Cup final is on right now, the Boston Bruins vs. the Vancouver Canucks, and it is turning in to a very exciting series! Vancouver is currently up 3-2 in the series, but they are back in Boston for game 6, where the Canucks have played poorly, losing both previous games in Boston in the series by a combined score of 12-1. At least the Cup isn't decided on goals for/against.
2. The NBA finals are on at the same time and while I care very little about the NBA, I am still keeping one eye on the series to see if the Mavericks can close it out on the hated Heat. Every time I see Lebron James on TV, I want to poke him in the eye. COME ON, DIRK NOWITZKI!
3. To golf, the US open is in a week and it should be a very interesting tournament, given how wide-open the field is. It would be great fun to see Steve Stricker finally win one, and Phil is motivated to win his first US Open, I think, but I would love to see one of the young guys take it - Rory or Luke Donald or Dustin Johnson. I confess though, I miss Tiger and his current struggles are hard to watch.
4. My own golf game is coming along well! I actually shot a 50 on one nine earlier this year, and have been consistently under 60 all year. It's nice to finally see my progress reflected in the score! WH and I are driving to Ontario later this summer and will stop a few times to golf along the way. Should be fun to play some new courses!
