Nothing like a big sports weekend to stir the soul. The New York Yankees play their hated rivals the Boston Red Sox. The Football draft is on. A pretty good boxing match is tuned up for Saturday. Hockey is in playoff mode and the running of the Kentucky Derby kicks off the first leg of the Triple Crown competition.
The Kentucky Derby puts me in the position of a lot of men my age, namely explaining why something that only lasts for two minutes still gives me enjoyment. Perhaps it is the Mint Juleps. In any event it is a fun event, even though we haven’t had Triple Crown winner since 1978
Probably the best sporting event is my son’s soccer game. He is five. I am not really sure it is soccer, more like herding cats, but it is fun. I coach, which basically involves avoiding a coronary event. So far, so good. So if you are on the field or in the stands this weekend, have a good time.
