I must have sand up my ass today, or something….

Baseball federation president Aldo Notari said: “The problem with baseball is that the best players are not going to the Olympics Games. (Whole story)

Ok, call me crazy, but the Olympics are pretty much about the amateur athletes. So why should there even be a comment about the best players not going to the Olympic games? Trying to come up with the same fiasco that Basketball and Hockey had when they decided to let professional athletes comprise the Olympic teams? Seriously, it’s one thing to have one or two pro athletes on a team, to head up the kids (like Czech and Russian hockey) but it’s another to put a bunch of American Queens on to a team so their egos can help them lose and throw temper tantrums that result in destroyed hotel rooms.


Oh yeah, off to my meeting with the CB, looks like DQB won’t make it. Any bets that DQB didn’t give CB my check for my due invoice????? Yeah, I know it’s a losing bet.

Well, my great uncle is safe:

Thank you for your concern [Saille Mom]. I was lucky. I have a reader’s ticket to
the British Library which keeps a copy of every book published in the UK.
The Library is near King’s Cross. Fortunately my journey was delayed and the
Harrow Station was closed before I could travel. The 21 people killed at
King’s Cross were on the train travelliing from the South whereas I travel
from the North. I will ask Simon to email you. They are going on holiday to
Northern France on Saturday. I am going on a Coach tour to Switzerland and
Austria on Monday. People’s attitude in London is that we are not going to
let terrorists dictate what we should do. Much love Peter

Gotta love my family. Something happens, we acknowledge and move on.
