I think it just ended. Didnt watch Ny myself this time. In the past usually a little but not this time. I feel bad for the athletes that worked so hard for a chance to do this and then have to so so at empty stadiums (even though very appropriate). I wonder how many would have preferred further delay to post pandemic.
I don't think those athletes feel bad for us when our world is not as we would like it to be. In the great scheme of things, running and jumping and swimming and riding etc isn't that important. I admire their dedication. But I admire more my father's dedication to his family by working low paid manual labour jobs for forty years. Perspective is everything.
Back in San Francisco, basketball great Nate Thurmond had a BBQ in the Industrial section of town. It was on my way to the train station. I saw Nate standing outside his place several times on my way. This was in the late 80s and early 90s.
I sit and think of everything, then I wonder where I've been.
