Etc, e.g., i.e., and n.b. from the sports world today:
–Khari Stephenson, formal Williams Purple Eph, scored the game-winning goal for MLS’ San Jose Earthquakes on Saturday. But, it’s soccer. It’s soccer.
-Speaking of soccer, the American women lost their World Cup match today with Sweden, 2-1. ESPN will have you believe that the Americans are the co-favorites, but they’ll lose in the quarterfinals to Brazil.
-‘Herst grad Neal Huntington ’91 bringing the Pittsburgh Pirates off the ledge and towards respectability. Andrew McCutchen probably isn’t hurting either.
-The Boston Red Sox won last night on a totally correct call at the plate in the bottom of the ninth. Jose Bautista is still on steroids and still irrelevant.
-And, finally, I lost 10 consecutive games of Kan Jam on the 4th. I can confidently say that our competition was stronger than that of the video even with the mandatory drink-in-hand rule in effect.
Happy hump day. From now on, it gets better.
