Game 7

So it all comes down to this, Game 7. Is there anything more exciting in sports than a do or die game? Win and move on, lose and you go home. 

The Rangers are on the road in Pittsburgh tonight to take on the Penguins in the aforementioned Game 7. This has been a series in which both teams have played tremendously and both teams have played horrendously. 

I don't know who wins tonight, but either way, it's been a fun ride so far with the Rangers, and hopefully it gets to continue on.

Until next time.

Some Ramblings

I haven't done one of these in a little bit, so here goes nothing.

-The Rangers are in Game 5 tonight against the Penguins and are fighting to keep their season alive. I don't know if I see it happening, because the Penguins have been the better team in every game except game 1. I don't know if that changes tonight.

-Spring is definitely here. Rutgers Day and Ag Field Day are behind us, which means the next domino to fall is Memorial Day. We went away in April down to Tampa to visit family, but it feels like we need to go away again. The Wife and I usually go away in May, so maybe it's my body telling me I need a vacation.

-The famous four-legged canine, Clover, has been up to good and no good recently. I will let her explain the good in her long-awaited return which should be out this weekend. The bad? Well, something she would never tell you is she likes to dig in the backyard. How do I know this? Two reasons. Every time she comes inside her nose and front paws are full of dirt and mud, and I have almost broken an ankle at least 10 times stepping in these holes. At least she is listening better. Sort of.

-Beer. Something I need to write more about. It's not like I don't drink it. I just don't write about it anymore. I've actually brewed three batches of beer as well. If you're not on Untappd and you are a beer drinker, what is wrong with you? Get on it.

Spring has Sprung

Spring has sprung around the Hops and Homers homestead. We had the first fire of the season last night after doing some spring cleaning. Who would have thought installing a replacement screen door would take triple the time I thought it would? As the saying goes, if it was easy, everyone would do it.

Clover and I have a new weekend morning tradition. We come out early, me with my coffee and her with her zeal for life, and sit. I listen to the birds and watch as she ninja-stalks them and comes oh so close to catching one. I don't know if she would know what to do if she did actually catch one. This morning in particular, there must be something amiss in the bird community because there is a lot of chatter going on. That or they're happy it's spring.  I'm still working on my bird chirping from Rosetta Stone.

Clover has some new tricks.  If she gets around to it, she will tell you all about them. She's been busy lately so you're just going to have to trust me.

Well, I need some more coffee and need to get this day going.

Until next time.
