One win, two losses, a couple of bruises, and a driverless auto race.

I stopped a slap shot with the top of my left knee. I later took a flying fall and landed on my left hip. So, if you see me favoring my right leg a little, that's why. I also got speared in the right side. Hockey is a truly exhilerating game. I don't feel the pain til the adrenaline wears off. I played a heckuva game, as did my teammates, but we lost miserably. Go Bombers! It's going to be a good season, if we work on our passing. 

Formula One has a drivers' cup and a constructors' cup.  With the drivers' cup comes the glory.  With the constructors' cup comes the money.  I recorded the F1 race in Suzuka, Japan in hopes of watching it tonight.  How about a race with only machines and no drivers?  Today, I was following this driverless car race. It looked to me like the Humvee was going to win.  And it did. 

I have a lingering optimism after having an amazing night at the casino last night.  The NASCAR fans were in town and they were well represented at Harrah's.  When I finally was seated in the poker room at a low limit Texas Hold 'Em game, I found that most of the players at my table didn't know what they were doing.  It was like taking candy from babies.  I turned $100 into $440 in a matter of a few hours.  Rich said it was like the perfect storm.  I like to think that my skill had something to do with it.
