Well, I don’t think that theres much more I can say about Kenny Rogers’ pitching last night than wow. That was good. So its series tied at one, and off to St Louis on Tuesday. Things are looking good.
Not so for the Seattle Seahawks, who went down to the Minnesota Vikings last night. Its hard enough for the ‘hawks to be playing without reigning MVP Shaun Alexander, but when they lost Matt Hasselbeck a few minutes into the second half, then you knew that the game was up. Hopefully its not too serious an injury.
I also want to pay tribute today to Michael Schumacher, who hung up his helmet for the final time after yesterday’s Brazilian Formula One Grand Prix. Schumacher is, in my opinion, without question the greatest driver ever to race in Formula One. 91 wins, 68 pole positions, 75 fastest laps, 1,369 points and 7 world championships – all records – are but half the story to this truly amazing racer. And Schumi signed off in style yesterday, producing possibly the best drive of the season, battlng his way from the back of the field to finish an impressive fourth. The race was won by his Ferrari teammate Felipe Massa, and the Championship by Fernando Alonso, but all the stories were about Schumacher’s departure from the sport after 15 years. And rightly so.
