Friends, We finally made it to August.  Time to take a breath.  I will say that traffic in DC was feeling the major effects of August recess – even with the African Leaders Summit in town.  Coming into DC from Annapolis at normal peak rush hour this morning was a…

Friends, It was great to catch the final early morning coverage of le Tour de France for this year’s race, won by Italy’s Vincenzo Nibali.  He dominated from stage 3 to win going away.  The completion of the most grueling event in sports will be minor though compared to the…

Friends, Well it was sure nice to slow down last week.  While I spent most of the sun-drenched week here in DC at a lax All-American showcase my daughter was playing in, it was nice to take a deep breath and not have to check my phone.  Better than me,…

Friends, Happy Father’s Day to all out there.  I hope it was a good day for you.  I spent my Father’s Day where else:  a lax tourney.  But yesterday, I was officiating rather than just watching Hannah.  I did make it home in time to watch Martin Kaymer cruise to…

Friends, After gorgeous weekend of amusement parks (my final 5th-grade trip to Hershey Park) and lacrosse (Beach Lax in OC, MD), I start today with the disappointment in Elmont, NY where California Chrome fell short to Tonalist in the third leg of the Triple Crown.  It was sad to hear…
