Well, the Olympics are over, at least until four years from now. The next Summer , Olympics will be in 2016 in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil. I loved their invitation presentation at the closing ceremonies yesterday, especially when I saw Pele, probably one of the best soccer players to ever play the game.
As for the rest of the ceremony, the music was awesome, featuring artists for both the young and old. I caught myself singing along to the music of Pink Floyd and the Who. Well Done London!
Now to some baseball.
My Blue Jays avoided the sweep against the New York Yankees by winning yesterday 10-7. Speaking of the Yankees, they have signed veteran right-hander, Derek Lowe to a Major League contract.
Last night I watched the Atlanta/New York Mets game. Mets won 6-5.
I got some very sad news, especially for Red Sox fans. Johnny Pesky died today at the age of 92. R. I. P. Johnny.
Finally, Philadelphia have placed Nate Schierhatz on the 15-disabled list with a fractured big right toe and recalled infielder Hector Luna from Triple A.
