I have nothing today, I had a nice political rant about Cuba and Veteran I spoke to Sunday and his view of the President making nice with the brutal dictatorship down on the Island of Fredo Corleone and the Banana Daiquiri… but
the more I wrote the madder I got so I deleted it.
I started a ran about Fat Pablo Sandoval and his ballooning weight (reported at 308 lbs. ) and his battle to win a job at 3rd base for the Sox but Lanz took that on.
I could talk about my bowling being so bad the past 3 weeks (since I got back from Florida) that my average for the 9 games bowled in the past few weeks is 167…but I bowl tonight with great hopes and expectations.
I could talk about the 9 holes I played at the very local public course I played yesterday with some old guys…no kidding I was the youngest by 10 years. I had a birdie on the par 3 4th hole. 178 yards, drive dropped 2’in front of the pin and rolled 2’past for an easy shot. The par was 36 and I broke 45…lowest score of the group by 10 strokes. But If I did that it may sound like bragging.
I could start talking about our 30th anniversary, 2 week land and sea trip to Alaska in August. Fly to Fairbanks, train thru Denali to Anchorage, bus to Seward, Cruise ship down the inside passage to Vancouver. Fly back to Boston. 6 days inland and 7 days on the ship. I am the only member of my immediate family never to have set foot in Alaska.
By doing so I will have set foot in 45 of the 50 United States. I still have Oregon, Idaho, Montana, North Dakota and Hawaii to finish that portion of my bucket list.
And speaking of bucket lists, Jonathan Kraft, President of the NE Patriots, has added one to his bucket list. He wants to be the guy to show Roger to the door after Goodell is finally let go by a majority of NFL owners. Jonathan’s Dad Robert Kraft was instrumental in getting Rog the job of Commissioner and instrumental in helping Rog keep his job when many of the owners didn’t care for him. Robert Kraft played ball and got screwed. Jonathan is gaining power and influence among the owners. With his Williams College and Harvard University degrees Jonathan has taken the Kraft Group to new financial heights. Jonathan is now on 4 different committees in the NFL owners structure. His goal for the league is transparency more than the secrecy of the past. The concussion situation will dictate where the league goes from here and Kraft would like to see the league be pro active in taking responsibility and taking care of the past and current players rather than having the current policy of Roger Goodell in his “deflect and deceive” plan that is not working. The concussion situation will be the down fall of the Commish and Kraft will play a big role in his undoing.
So I guess I had more today than I first thought!
Have a terrific day Ladies and Gents
