Every weekend I think about what I am going to write about on Monday, some weekends it is pretty tough to come up with ideas and others I have enough for about four columns.

I always say that a small change in something can make a world of difference. I am a huge proponent of momentum in sports and in life.
Who would have thought that bringing up a youngster with no NHL experience would spark the Blues to three consecutive road wins after losing so many in a row. That is exactly what has happened as Jake Allen was brought into the goalie mix for the St. Louis Blues and after three road wins he will stay in at goal. It begs the question though, when do you take him out? Do you let him play ‘till he loses or do you switch back now that the team has some momentum and try to get it to their real backup goalie.

Brown is the color of the day, these days. The bare treegroves shoot back little of the suns reflection. On gray days, they stand even more somber. And even though we can’t say it’s been a bad winter, winter still it is, and the leaf-less branches echo that reminder.

A few weeks ago, we all lost a good man. He wasn’t a former President, or a war hero (but was a veteran) . He was just a baseball player, which as he has been quoted as saying, was “all I ever really wanted to be.” But he was more than that, you know. As you may have watched or read about Stan Musial these past days, your were sure to note his kindness, decency and generosity, giving signed baseball memorabilia away like sticks of gum, comforting a pitcher who had been badgered by racial slurs, staying true to his wife for 72 years.
I am already sick of the excuses for everything imaginable that happened in the Super Bowl. From the power going out to the horrible play calling by the 49ers.
What a shame the National Championship Football Game between Notre Dame and Alabama turned out Monday night. I was so excited about watching the game. I sat down with some snacks and watched the most lopsided game that I have ever seen.« Previous Entries Next Entries »
