… and already it is feeling like September. No complints here (except about the rapid passage of time).
I came awake this morning with a bit of a start after some of the most vivid dreams of Judy I’ve had in quite awhile. Came awake to realize that I was dreaming and it’s been 10 years and no, I wasn’t just sharing a meal with a healthy and vibrant Judy. No, it’s been 10 years since Judy died. Her sister Annie is visiting – which no doubt had something to do with the dreams. Time.
It makes me wonder about absence and presence … what is real. What I carry in my heart and in my memory can have as much reality as this keyboard I am pecking at right now … in this moment which slides into memory as soon as it’s marked. What is real? What isn’t?
Hey, maybe Rush Limbaugh isn’t real! I like that thought. Cheney? Check. Grassley? Check. Palin? Of course, unreal.
Enough dreaming and rambling … other news?
The WPS All Star Game is this Sunday. They’ll play Swedish league champions Umeå IK at The Anheuser-Busch Soccer Park in Fenton, MO, with kick-off scheduled for 5:30pm ET/4:30pm CT. The game will be televised live nationally on Fox Soccer Channel starting at 5PM ET.
Pia has named her roster for the USWNT’s September camp – as she prepares for a match vs. Germany. Will it be televised? That would be cool!
No Lil (she must have taken herself out of he running) and no Rampone … congrats, Christie – you are all the more amazing in my mind! And speaking of amazing players – here are some thoughts from Goal.com staffers re. the WPS Championship MVP.
Meanwhile, in the Euros we’ve got Germany-France and Iceland-Norway today … and England plays tomorrow (vs. Russia) while Sweden and Italy face off.
Out of time … must go. But first – welcome home, JPE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
