Wow! 297 Masters Army members! Just 3 shy of the big 300.
The Masters finishes poll has 55 votes so far. That probably covers most of the current regulars who frequent the Masters section. I thought that Al said that he would wait till September or October, in order to see if there was enough votes to present it to Pearl Co. Hopefully, there will be a few more votes to tally by then.
What else...let's see. The Bulls lost 4 straight to the Heat after winning the 1st game, and were ushered out of the playoffs. The Cubs have won 6 out of their last 10 games, thus lifting them out of the cellar of the NL Central. We've had some really nice weather here. Warm temps & sunny skies with a small shower or two sprinkled in. Someone in Florida won the big Powerball jackpot. I hope that it was our pal Marv!
I'm haven't been on the PDF as much recently. So, sometimes it takes a while for me to catch up. I hope that you had a good jam tonight, and that everything is good with you too.
295 MA members!
With both the Cubs and White Sox at the bottom of their divisions, Chicago's sporting news is focusing on the Blackhawks and the Bulls. Both of which are in the midst of their playoff runs.
While I'm not much of a hockey fan, the Blackhawks just clinched the first round of the NHL playoffs against the Minnesota Wild. If the Hawks get into the finals for the Stanley Cup, then I might watch some of the games. Otherwise, I just check out the results late-night or the next day.
This scrappy Bulls team has defied the odds this season. They made it to the postseason despite the fact that their #1 star player Derrick Rose hasn't played a single minute this season. The Bulls barely made it past the Brooklyn Nets in the first round. Now, they are battling the dreaded/despised Miami Heat in round 2. (They lost here at home last night in the third game.) I really don't think that the Bulls (without Rose) can beat the mighty Heat in a 7 game series, but you never know.
I know, right? Your Dodgers have just about the same W-L record so far this season as my poor Cubbies have.
Let me tell you. What a week of entertainment I've had.
On Tuesday night I went to see Iron Man 3 in 3D with the family, at one of our favorite local movie theaters.
I thought that it was pretty good (if you like superhero movies). For me it was better than the 2nd one, on par story-wise I'd say with the 1st one.
Wednesday night our family went to see the musical "Oklahoma" at the Civic Opera House downtown.
Now even though it is a classic Broadway musical, I've never seen it in its entirety.
It was an absolutely wonderful production, my mom really loved it!
"Oklahoma" has been one of her favorite Rodgers & Hammerstein musicals since she was little.
Yep, we're back to 293 MA members.
Don't know what's going to happen to Brian Urlacher. The local sports radio guys have tried to figure out a scenario, in which Brian would/could come back to the Bears next season. His younger brother Casey, was just elected mayor of a small town (Mettawa, IL) way up in the one of the northern burbs.
Thanks for asking Lonny. We are safe and dry.
The flooding affects a lot of neighborhoods in the city and suburbs, but thankfully not ours.
Our basement has always remained dry, even in the heaviest of rainstorms. (Knock on wood. )
The unfortunate folks that live right next to the rivers, are the ones who get the worst of it.
I wish. I'm more of a Mustang guy. Do you have a 69' Cobra Jet?
We are lucky indeed to have such great moms.
Did you notice that we lost a member in the Masters Army?
It's back down to 292. I wonder who left?
That's alright, there is always another potential member just around the corner.
Come one, come all! The Masters Army awaits!
That was a good one Lonny! Having good ol' W. dancing to Ram Jam's Black Betty. LOL!
Life's too short. No need for any extra negativity on the internet from me.
Like mom always said, "If you can't say something nice....."
I know right? Every time we have flooding around the Chicagoland area the local news covers it. Sure enough they interview homeowners that were affected by the flooding. You can guarantee that the story will mention how much the homeowner spent to fix their basement the last time it flooded, and how they plan to stay and fix it up again!
If we ever move, you better believe that we would do our homework first to find a house that doesn't flood every time it rains. LOL! Glad to hear that you had a good jam last night, and that you tweaked the e-drums, and got them to sound even better than before.
Pearl does it for me
