• My latest piece at Blue Star Basketball is entitled “Why It’s Time To Get Beyond Title IX,” but I haven’t had a chance to respond to readers, etc. as I was at an all-day website workshop. Not trying to blog and run, but I couldn’t avoid the schedule conflict.
• And I missed today’s World Cup action. Given the nail-biting way in which the U.S. defeated Algeria to advance, perhaps it was a good thing. These Yanks are going to give me a heart attack before this thing is over. Call them The Unforgettables. Americans not familiar with the suspense and the torment of the World Cup are finding out just how excruciating this is to the rest of the world.
They won’t have much time to get ready for a hell of a weekend as the knockout stage begins. The epic stuff is only going to get better, I believe. Bring it on, Ghana.
• Also can’t wait for another England vs. Germany matchup in the second round. The Fleet Street tabloids will be littered with World War caricatures of “Jerry” and all the torment he has caused, especially on the pitch.
God am I loving this!
