Briefly. (abbreviated, the river fkooding…) 

“’Cause summer’s here and the time is right for fighting in the streets, boy” 

Speaking of the Rolling Stones, the World’s Greatest Rock ‘n Roll Band, in a sure sign of the times, the official sponsor of their current “No Filter” tour is the Alliance for Lifetime Income, a trade association that promotes the sale of annuities. 

Trivia #1: The Legend of Ted Williams’ Seat: Where is it? Section 43, row 27, seat 11 – Section 42, row 37, seat 21 – Section 39, row 30, seat 14 – Section 39 row, 32, seat 21 – Section 41, row 36, seat 25? 

“Pleased to meet you, hope you guess my name” 

Best of luck to Teddy Bruschi who suffered another stroke and is apparently doing OK. 

“And the chauffeur drives your car, you let everybody know” 

OK, I’m done with all the “All-Star snub” crap. It happens EVERY year. Too much talk around here because it happened to our guys. Let it go. 

“War, children, is just a shot away” 

Quote of the week: “If there’s anybody here who is going to be disrespectful to either the American or Canadian national anthem, grab your gear and get the f&*k out now because you’ll never see the ice.” – Coach John Krupinsky of a Danbury Connecticut minor league hockey team. 

Speaking of the all-star game, and I’ve said this before, someone is going to get hurt! There are what, 40-75ish kids in the outfield shagging balls during the Homerun Derby, cutting each other off, bumping into one another. Some of those balls are scorched! One day, whether a fly ball or line drive is going to ricochet off one kid’s glove into the face of another kid. It’s going to happen. But hey, let’s let them have at it until someone gets hurt. 

Tournament organizers declined John Daly’s request to use a cart in the Open Championship later this month. Daly stills plans to play adding “Fingers crossed I can make it through the pain.” I’m sure a few beers might help with that… 

Speaking of the PGA, last weekend 20-year old Matthew Wolff made a 26-foot putt from the fringe for an eagle on the final hole to win the 3M Open. It was just six weeks after winning the NCAA individual title with Oklahoma State and he played the tournament on a sponsor exemption. Good for him! 

Speaking of hotdogs… Best tagline going: “Come on, eat a hotdog!” – Kayem, official hotdog sponsor of the Boston Red Sox.
