NHL, NBA & NFL: Celebrations Abound

By the time I got there, for an OU Alumni event, the evidence remained…..red and white confetti in the streets and pressed up against buildings, a sea of folks donning the colors & an undeniable buzz in the air!  It. Had. Happened!  For Washington Capitals fans still in disbelief that their team had shaken off the proverbial monkey & captured the Stanley Cup….nothing says seeing is believing, like a parade winding through the streets of your city!!

Meanwhile, on the other coast….Golden State Warriors fans are filing championship parades in the “Per Usual” category!!

Throw in….following Rafa Nadal’s tourney path to his unprecedented 11th French Open win & I was completely drained from all of the revelry cheering and armchair coaching can bring.  Nothing sounded better than the r & r associated with the long days of summer.  As of late, restful & relaxing is truly what it hasn’t been:

In what seemed like a matter of hours since his team skated victoriously off the ice in Las Vegas, Capitals Head Coach Barry Trotz resigned.  As in quit, not re-signed. Word has it…contract negotiations are at the center…because, aren’t they always?

The enthusiasm of FIFA is underway. Thus far, only one earthquake has been reported….hold on to your cleats though, there are many more games to play ….

When one’s favorite son does the unthinkable, gasps are heard throughout the fairways…even on less than desirable courses—Exhibit A:  US Open 2018.  Phil Mickelson’s actions were well taken, from my recliner…take the penalty, keep your mind right, and on to the next hole.  Apparently Karma plays golf and took exception….in the end, Lefty still had more digits on his scorecard than he would have liked.

Because it is always football season…the progress of rookie qbs with a handful of practices under their belts is supposed to be newsworthy. Ummm, it isn’t.  Neither is the state of Brady & Belichick’s relationship.  Rest assured, they’ll be on the same page when it counts…nothing says “we are one” like demolishing opponents!  

From where will the LeBrons and Kawhis land to which draft pick will live up to his billing & everyone in between, all eyes are on the NBA. As organizations strategize to dethrone the Warriors, that office activity known as team building has taken on a whole new meaning.  Watching a game of hardwood chess is quite fascinating!

On second thought, rest & relaxation can often be overrated!    By the time I got there, for an OU Alumni event, the evidence remained…..red and white confetti in the streets and pressed up against buildings, a sea of folks donning the colors & an undeniable buzz in the air!  It.
