Yesterday I headed up to Toronto to catch the All-Canada battle between the Expos and Jays. Since the Jays are pretty bad, I was able to get a ticket in the row behind the Expos dugout. Vlad Guerrero launched one off the restaurant in center, but the Jays rallied to win the game. Couple of things I noticed: 1) The Expos were cruising but faltered when Stewart replaced Tucker to start the 9th, even though Tucker blew the Jays away in the 8th and 2) 5 guys sitting two rows behind me were tremendous hecklers. Most of their material somehow involved poking fun at the Maple Leafs not winning a Cup in 30+ years...tremendous creativity there.

World Cup is over and now I can either sleep in later or get out for some runs. Great comment from ESPN's Tommy Smyth will take us out of here for now "The officiating in this World Cup has been crap."

Hey Yo! Welcome to this new blog I set up. Does this make me some sort of "tech-geek"? Probably, but who cares.

NBA Draft has come and gone. My highlight was listening to Barkley and the Commish engage in some verbal sparing. Someone tell Kenny Smith that it is ok that more foreign guys were picked than Tar Heels. If you want a full recap, check out the always on point Sports Guy at Page 2 on .

While you are there, read the World Cup Diary. Man I am jealous of that guy hanging out in Japan and catching all those games. Good showing by the US and I think DeMarcus Beasley and Landon Donovan could make a big showing in the next Cup. All the teams I was pulling for are long gone. The boys in green from the Emerald Isle had a strong run led by Robbie Keane (waiting for my Keane jersey to arrive in the mail)...and I give props to the Korean squad. Drop me a line if you know where I can score one of those red t-shirts they were all wearing.

Bartolo Colon is an Expo.....and I am gone for now.
