Summer Sports 2019

What is going on, beyond most waiting for college and NFL football?

Toronto Raptors beat the thought-to-be-invincible Golden State Warriors for the NBA crown, then the NBA goes into free-agency.

Tour de France is going, right now, stage 10 today as I type, the stage close to coming to an end. Frenchman Julian Alaphilippe is in yellow and in the natural order of things, Peter Sagan is in the green sprinters' jersey.

Two days ago on Saturday, Serena Williams was soundly beaten by Romanian Simona Halep 6-2,6-2 in just 56 minutes.

Yesterday, Serbian Novak Djokovic defeated Roger Federer 7-6(5) 1-6 7-6(4) 4-6 13-12(3) taking nearly five hours in what has already been described "one for the ages."

What else y'all got?
MLB All-Star game is past, now and the real baseball now begins.

Major League Soccer runs from March through October, so I'm set with NYCFC.

English Premiere league kicks off in a little more than 3 weeks. The 1st match pits Liverpool vs Norwich City on 8/9.

SEC Media Days started yesterday in Hoover, Alabama, too.

MLS, it is interesting to me, that while 23 years ago I was foaming at the mouth with anticipation of MLS, and I am glad that the league is succeeding, I hardly if ever watch a match

Silly Season is upon the foreign leagues right now, and my club plays their first match on August 2nd or 3rd against Barnsley, I believe it is, at Craven Cottage. We have also already brought in a couple players which is super early for Fulham. I think we will keep much of our roster in place which should make for a solid season and good shot at promotion, again.

During summer I typically only watch sportscar racing and indycar...

When Indians were doing good I watched them some what...

So now, I am just waiting for the Browns and Ohio State...

Although Ohio State might be iffy this year...

Holy Crap. Today's stage is stopped at the second-to-last climb of the day due to heavy hail and water on the road at the finish. WOW. I have never seen this in all my years of watching the Tour.

The yellow jersey has changed hands, due to this, and everyone's time is reckoned from the check point atop that last climb. This is huge and unprecedented.

In other news, Saints' wide receiever Michael Thomas is holding out of camp as he is negotiating his contract. Hard to believe he's here three years already.
