Three Professional Sports Come to Dramatic Seasonal Closes on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday

Belmont  Park, New York

June 9, 2018

 

On Thursday, the National Hockey League season ended when the Washington Capitals won the Stanley Cup 4 games to 1 over the Las Vegas Golden Knights.

On Friday, the National Basketball Association season ended when the Golden State Warriors was their third championship in four years. For this, they should receive honorable mention in Cleveland’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

On Saturday, the magnificent horse Justify should defeat nine others to claim the Triple Crown.

Justify has captured the Triple Crown after winning the 150th Belmont Stakes on Saturday in New York.

Justify won the Belmont starting from the rail. The last Triple Crown from that spot at the Belmont was Secretariat, 45 years ago to the day Saturday.

Justify, which went off as the 4-5 favorite, is the 13th horse to win the Triple Crown but just the second to capture it undefeated, joining Seattle Slew (1977). Justify beat nine other horses to win — more competition than any other Triple Crown winner has beaten in the Belmont. Justify defeated 35 horses across the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont.

Bob Baffert, Justify’s trainer, joins “Sunny Jim” Fitzsimmons as the only trainers to win the Triple Crown twice. Fitzsimmons won in 1930 with Gallant Fox and in 1935 with Omaha. Baffert won in 2015 with American Pharoah.

It was Baffert’s fifth attempt to win the Triple Crown — three more than any other trainer. It was jockey Mike Smith’s first Triple Crown. At 52, he is the oldest jockey to win the Triple Crown.

Gronkowski finished second in the 1 1/2 mile race, and Hofburg finished third before a crowd of 90,000.

What next?!?

Sarah Bessey and Brian Mann (of TX) Said This Best [ about the Trump Naming Jerusalem as the Political Capital of Israel ]

No other country has done what the USA Executive Branch did yesterday to spark protests and violent deaths in the Middle East and throughout the world.

trump tweets

 Just now ·

As usual, Sarah Bessey took what I’ve been thinking and said it better:

“I’ve had to dismantle a lot of false teaching from my theology over the years: right up there has been relearning how to pray for the peace of Jerusalem, moving towards a holistic peace that encompasses and centres *both* Palestinians and Israelis. The way the Church has turned a blind eye and a deaf ear and a hard heart towards the suffering of the Palestinian people in particular over the years is both an indictment and a tragedy. In light of yesterday’s news, I hope we will all continue to pray for (and look for ways to contribute to) a lasting peace in Jerusalem.”

We pray for peace, we try to love our enemies and we trust in God for the best is yet to come.

Final Four in the NBA: 2018 Results in 3 of the 4 Best Teams Winning Enough to Reach Their Conference Finals

  • Boston
  • Cleveland
  • Houston
  • Golden State

Pick the odd-man-out. Hint: Both the Raptors and Pacers would be better in the NBA Final Four. First, Toronto had the best season record in the league. The Indiana Pacers played to win their best-of-seven playoff versus the Cleveland Cavaliers. I believe the official on the floor did what ever they could to help #23 LaBron James win during games 3, 4, and 5. They tried to get Cleveland a win in Game 6 but the Pacers played so well that it was impossible to get that result.

The result is that the Cavaliers won by a basket in Cleveland during Game 7 of the series versus the Indiana Pacers.

Psychoanalysis of a Life Changing Event [for my ex-wif]

May Day 2018

No not for this author but for my ex- and only wif during my 64+ years.

The irony is I thought that Beatles song would mirror my own life (you know, … Vera, Chuck, and Dave) when I attained this age of mine despite using all kinds of recreational drugs (no H or smack) during my ‘formative years’ – when coincidently I met my wif during college days in the Big Ten Conference – and engaging for pay in some dangerous and unsafe activities (fyi, I became a safety engineer in 1979 – when coincidently I married my wife near Lake Michigan – we did not have issues until we arrived in the ‘land of milk and honey’ Northern California).

You would think I’d be mildly upset that my college honey decided to remarry an atheist, who lived next door between 1995 and 2007 – when coincidently I moved to Sonoma County wine country, alone.

Naw she could not understand how elated I was that she would be able to retire next week and not have to work in a preschool daycare center until she aged to 80 or so. My vows specifically stated ‘until death do y’all part’ and I had still felt responsibility for her health insurance premiums, mortgage payments, property taxes, raising our daughter, and the re-sale value on a $2 to $3,000,000.00 house in beautiful County of San Mateo.

Fortunately, the divorce proceedings she handled her self and but I hired a lawyer only to be shafted after we’d been separated for a year or so.

What I thought was my second love of my life, was lost because Susan was so honorable that we refrained from ‘hanky panky’ until my first divorce was finalized. The time was not right for us and I suffered a broken heart.

iinmate-commits-suicide-in-jail

Today, I am thinking that I would not have incurred a broken heart if my ex-wif did not drag her feet meddling with the legal paperwork and dirty-dealing with my lawyer and the divorce court judge in his chambers, no less. Dear Susan and I could not wait… I recall breaking up on the Fourth of July, no less.

Like a cat falling, I always have tried to land on my feet after losing a relationship or changing jobs.

Death is a subject which I have researched. Taking a lesson from Kubler-Ross, I should be angry, then go through denial, and now begin to cry. So I am trying to cry today so my subconscious can, as my Mom would say, “David, get over it.”

I should just write it off that my ex-wif decided on “a marriage of convenience.”

Excuse me, I am going to take a nap.

“Natural Shock” Performance-Presentation Outstanding in San Francisco

Maryssa Wanless performed the one-woman play “Natural Shocks” on Monday night at PianoFIght in San Francisco. Produced by Utopia Theatre Project, Wanless’ performance was part of a nationwide participation of theatre activism to end gun violence. Written by Lauren Gunderson, one of today’s most prolific and successful screenwriters, “Natural Shocks” is based upon Shakespeare’s ‘Hamlet’ and that famous question of “to be or not to be.”

Gunderson was so shocked by the recent outburst of gun violence at Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida that it brought to mind the gun violence almost 20 years ago at Columbine High in Littleton, Colorado. She dedicated “Natural Shocks” play to be used as vehicle to help put an end to gun violence. All royalties and fees have been waived so that any theatre group or community who wanted to put on the 65-minute monologue could do so for free.

Making this as an opportunity for Utopia Theatre Project to not only raise funds for EveryTown for Gun Safety, a non-profit working to end gun violence, but also as a way for people to discuss this pressing issue.

The mood on Monday night at PianoFight was intense as the audience hung on every word that Wanlass powerfully delivered. Despite the play’s serious subject matter, humor at times prevailed.

Since Gunderson’s release of her play, performances and staged readings of “Natural Shocks” have been performed in many places all over the nation. Gunderson’s aim was to have it performed in all 50 states.

Wanless is the Artistic Director of Utopia Theatre Project and she has this to say, “I believe theatre is transformative because it has transformed me and the people I work with on a daily basis. Theatre asks its audiences and participants to extend their thinking beyond themselves and step into the experience of another person.”

After Wanlass was finished her thought-provoking performance there was a “Q & A” with the audience in which also included Director, Laura Jane Bailey.

While the venue at PianoFight only holds 50 people, the ability for important subjects and issues to be presented in an intimate theatrical space makes an impact.

Utopia Theatre Project was founded in 2014 by emerging Japanese-American playwright, Anne Yumi Kobori because she believes in artist-produced live theatre as a unique and powerful form of human connection using the theatrical art form to invoke social change through the telling of non-traditional stories.

“Natural Shocks” is the fourth production (“Seeds” was the third) in Utopia’s inaugural season and is certainly a unique theatrical experience. Yet, even more so is the fact that this was history in the making using theater as a form of social activism.

Just a Thought: A Reflection on Republican History – Avoiding a Constitutional Crisis, Preserving the Republic, and Fostering World Peace

Could the Republican Party do the U.S. and the world a favor?

May we take a lesson from history?

It was done during the 1970’s.

In the name of the party of Abraham Lincoln and by the grace of God, can it happen again?

(1) The Speaker of the House of Representatives changed prior to the mid-term election of 1974, with a presidential election looming in 1976.

(2) The dishonorable Vice President (Spiro Agnew / like Mike Pence) was replaced.

(3) The sitting President (RMN) resigned with some dignity and many accomplishments.

(4) The Vice President (Gerald Ford) seamlessly assumed the Presidency.

(5) A respectable Vice President (former New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller) was selected.

(6) The U. S. House of Representatives democratically elected a new Speaker of the House (who follows the VP as next in-line to succeed the President of the United States of America (POTUS)).

Given the Trade War, military conflicts, resignation of today’s Speaker, and recent alliance of Russia – China – Syria, perhaps Americans should pursue the best options.

So help US God.
