The dog days of August are here, and we're all too sweaty to think about sports to any serious degree, but let's give it a swing.
Football: Jean, a Facebook friend of mine, who happens to be a Minnesota Vikings fanatic, posted this morning: "Only 2 days until preseason!" and I say "NOOOO!!" because, as much as I love football, once football starts, suddenly it's Christmas, and I can't handle thinking about winter! :-(
Soccer (the "other" football): FIFA is long over, but the talk here is how to get a Major Soccer League expansion team here in Minnesota.
Basketball: The season doesn't start until November, but it looks pretty definite that my beloved Minnesota Timberwolves will be losing Kevin Love to the Cleveland Cavaliers. Sad.
Spell-check: Okay, spell-check isn't a sport, but I'm starting to notice which words spell-check doesn't recognize (at least on Blogger.com). In the above blurb, these words override spell-check: Phillies, Millville, Los Angeles, NOOOO, FIFA, and Timberwolves. Seriously? Not even Los Angeles? I think that spell-check needs some serious expansion! My book is going to have way too many overrides.
