The Eternal Season - Wednesday August 10th

Wednesday Afternoon TES Friends! 

Past the halfway point, we can now start to focus on the coming weekend!

Just a quick hitter today, once football season starts Wednesday and Saturday will be the off days for TES, Saturday for the obvious football watching reasons, and Wednesday is the day of primary writing for the Hawkeye Game Notes.

Speaking of football, but with goalies, tonight 9:00 pm, ESPN2, Mexico v. USA from Philly.  There is also news today that NBC has come to an agreement with MLS to provide coverage starting in 2012 - with a few games on NBC itself, but most on the new NBC Sports Network (which is actually Versus, the name will change on January 2nd). This game is 1 of 38 national team friendlies going on today, around the globe.

The Dodgers and Phillies take to the field in about 30 minutes, with LA looking to avoid the 3 game sweep.  Angels/Yankees is the ESPN game at 7:00 pm.  Quite a buzz on Sportscenter and here locally about the recent trouble of Mariano Rivera - his famed cutter is not getting people out quite as much.  I would think it has something to do with age - he has been so good for so long, but in baseball, the years will catch up with you eventually.  Actually, they do in all sports.  Alas.


OK, that's it!  Back Thursday, which is another milestone on the countdown clocks for real football, and also the day that quasi-real football begins.  Yay!  Have a great evening, we'll see you tomorrow!

The love of sports is shared across the generations, and there are few things as fun as debating the merits of certain players, strategies, and team histories with other, opposing sports nuts.
