Less Than Two Weeks To Go ...

Can you believe it?
Two weeks from now, we'll be assessing the prologue of the 2006 Tour de France and, perhaps, re-examing predictions and assessments of the field.
I'm just back from Barrie, Ontario, where everyone eats Tim Horton donuts, drinks lots of black coffee and still smoke in restaurants -- and just about everywhere else. So I've been pretty quiet this week on the blog. I'm sure Granny and Tooth are out there in the heat riding!
I'm off to Cape Cod Thursday (with Mike Armellino?) for a week, then the University of Massachusetts-Amherst for a journalism conference, then to the Jersey Shore for a several days to celebrate my 10th wedding anniversary with my wife, Sheila. Don't know how active I'll be, although Blogger makes it pretty easy to post as long as you have Internet access. I'm sure Granny will have plenty to say about the Tour and, as always, will be dead-on right about his assessments.
Right now, I've got the Brazil-Australia World Cup match on ABC. The U.S. Open golf championship begins at 12:30 on NBC. And OLN will have the Tour of Switzerland finale at 5 p.m. AND, I've got TiVo-ed last night's Game 6 Stanley Cup Finals Edmonton victory over Carolina, 4-0, forcing a Game 7 Monday. Nothing could be finer than a Game 7 in Carolina!
Don't you love days like this?!

Let's us please not forget the HERSHEY BEARS taking the Calder Cup last week in the AHL. 9th such time for da Bears!

Great program, incredible goalie and great former players like Our Boy Freezy (2nd top scorer his last season with da Bears)

For some reason, we just can't convince the former hockey all-star to shave his fur laden wheels.

Since Hershey is a Washington Capitals farm team, they're very pleased here. The GM of the Milwaukee team, Phil Whitliff, is a long-time friend, though.

Milwaukee is a great team, with a great coach and is no stranger to the playoffs. Both teams played their hearts out and provided extraordinary entertainment as a result.
