Apparently there is some kind of sporting event taking place in Brazil. I won’t be watching it but thanks to Twitter I will get to follow every unexciting moment as people I follow post tweet after tweet that only make sense to someone who is a) a fan b) watching the games. I get the same joyful experience during the endless hockey and basketball playoffs, NCAA football bowl games, and UFC bouts.
That reminds me – Sergio Romo blew a 2 run lead in the 9th last night, and the SF Giants lost by a score of 7-4 to the Rockies. That is the Giants fourth loss in five games, but they still hold the best record in the major leagues.
Obama is in Palm Springs today, although he’s supposed to pop over to Irvine to deliver a commencement speech in between a game of golf and a fundraiser. But don’t worry, he left Joe Biden in charge.
