A virtual cornucopia of televised sports was on display today and I was enjoying every minute of it. After riding a half-century (50 miles) yesterday in blistering heat here in the Boston area, I was happy to kick back today and veg in front of the tube. My laziness was rewarded with great football and baseball (it helped that both the Patriots and the Red Sox won), the final round of the BMW Championship (golf), the men’s singles finals of the US Open (tennis) and the IndyCar Series Championship (yeah, auto racing). Without much effort, I’m sure I could have dug up a soccer game, but there was just no time. I almost broke the buttons on the remote as it was trying not to miss any significant events.
Maybe the end of summer isn’t so bad after all . . .
