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?!?

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.

Go Indy Colts !

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.
