Here’s a nice piece from the Fort Worth Star Telegram about some of the stories to watch at the 2008 Olympics.
Then we have the outlook for the Phillies … which, in typical Phillies’ fashion, looks like it’s likely to get nerve-wracking! (And BTW, they are on ESPN – or ESPN2 – Wednesday night.) Speaking of baseball, look for some familiar faces in row 7 behind home plate when the Red Sox play the Twins again tonight. (JBD, JPE, BJE, and a special post-birthday celebrant).
Last, but certainly not in the least least (!), here is an interesting post that appeared on Sideline Views, exploring, again, the whole Hope Solo-USWNT controversy. I continue to be bothered by the fact that the opinions I read seem to be based (understandably) on the only information that is being put “out there.” That that information comes mostly from Greg Ryan and Hope Solo makes me a little cautious. I am still mulling my response … and would LOVE to hear what others think. What’s your take on it all?
