Tom's Take on Sports


Tuesday's random musings...

Random musings for a Tuesday...

-- It is always refreshing when both the Reds and Cardinals are in the thick of things in the NL Central.  The Reds are my team-- dating back to the Big Red Machine days of the 70's... boy, talk about spoiling a kid early in his life-- and the Cardinals are the preferred team of this area.  Always a pleasure to have those two duke it out...

-- Hockey ratings are up this year for the Stanley Cup finals.  It lasted one game less than it should have,  but the Chicago Black Hawks win in 6 games was a satisfying end-- just not as great as if the Hawks would have taken it back at the United Center in Game 7.  But... a series that began with a 3-overtime game, had 4 overall overtime battles, and ended with 2 goals in 17 seconds for the Hawks?  Yeah, that works...

--  How valuable are good assistants to head coaches?  We will find out with the Pacers next year... as Indiana loses assistant Brian Shaw.  Shaw has become coach of the Denver Nuggets; he was coach Frank Vogel's right hand man for the last couple of years

--  Turnaround of the Year candidate...the U-S Men's Soccer team.  After basically being left for dead a year ago, Jurgen Klinsmann's side has recovered to lead their World Cup qualifying group with five games left to go.  It looks like they are going... to Brazilllllll... for the 2014 World Cup.

--  The Colts' Tailgate Tour is coming to Vincennes tonight.  Great idea by the Colts' promotion group to bring the Colt experience throughout the state of Indiana.  Go see it... it has been here serveral years, and is worth the time.

--  Finally, we are just under 2 months away from High School football season.  Here's to hoping for another great season across the area.

                                                  That's my take... I'm Tom Lee.
