"The face of the operation is Briatore (referred to exclusively in the film by his colleagues and angry, chanting detractors as "Flavio"), an anthropomorphic radish who spends most of his time at QPR plotting to fire all of the managers."
I didn't feel like watching the Home Run Derby tonight, so I flipped over to ESPN2 and watched some of the Pan-Am Games. I caught U-M's Sam Mikulak winning the all-around gold medal in men's gymnastics. Got kind of exciting - he had to hold off some guy from Cuba and barely won it.
Mikulak is good. He's going to be the favorite to win the gold medal next year in Rio. It's pretty cool that the best male gymnast in the world is a Wolverine.
Game means nothing to U.S. (already qualified for next round) and everything to Panama as Haiti shocks the tourney with a current 4 pts. A Panama win pushes them into 2nd in the group but Haiti should be fine as a 3rd place team with 4 pts (top 2 3rd place teams advance). A tie from Panama might push the to the next round with 3 pts.
- Chandler, Alvarado, Brooks, Johnson
- Bedoya, Beckerman, Bradley, Morales
- Wondo, Zardes
I'd prob play Chandler and Jozy this whole game and then sit them the rest of the tourney (ok maybe Jozy as a sub for 15 minutes) but I can deal with this mix as Zardes could use 60 min. Wondo is fine for garbage games.... Ice Man rest of tournament up top with Zardes I hope.
I'd have liked to see Johnson at an outside mid but he seems stuck at D for the U.S. Morales will be interesting to watch to see if he has any impact.
Are we supposed to be hearing the details of Michigan's deal with Nike today? Give me your best estimate of what you think the deal is. I'm gonna guess 10 million per year.
Who is going to fire up the adult beverages and the BBQ? What's on tap? And what is your favorite vacation spot that you have actually been to, not just one that you want to visit? Indeed, maybe you are reading this post from that very spot.
EDIT: I should add, what made the vacation trip so much fun?
