Good Monday morning to you. I hope every one of you had a grand Fathers Day out there. Let us get to the goods huh? ($ = subscription may be needed)
From this weekend on Corn Nation, we had a lot of activity about Big Red Weekend. Four verbals from the event, along with two others earlier in the week make everyone happy.
The first elimination of the College World Series will happen this afternoon as Louisville and Oregon State will play for the right to stay in the tourney this afternoon. Mississippi State and Indiana will square off in the nightcap, with the winner being in the driver seat to make the championship series. From Sunday's action, North Carolina State dropped their in-state rivals UNC, while UCLA held off LSU in the second game.
Seems like Heisman trophy winner Johnny Manziel got a little upset on Saturday night, and tweeted out some frustrations about the College Station crowd.

San Antonio brought their A game to Game 5 of the NBA Finals last night and defeated the Miami Heat by 10 points. The series goes back to finish in South Florida.

In other NHL news, sounds like if the Coyotes franchise needs a new home, it'll be Seattle. I think Kansas City's sparkling Sprint Center would be better, but... hey, just my opinion.
Today is both National Apple Strudel and Cherry Tart Day, as well as National Eat Your Veggies Day.

Play this song today when Monday seems long. Like Ever..... long.
Enjoy your day everyone.
