I am really looking forward to the next five days as we celebrate the final unofficial days of summer
I am taking a couple days off from radio and will take one last deep breath before emerging into fall sports which is usually the most enjoyable but busiest time of the year. In addition to college and pro football and later the beginning of basketball I must deal with two kids playing travel soccer, balance two jobs and somehow keep a wife happy.
It is not easy.
The next five days should be a joy.
** I finally get to see a Jim Harbaugh led team onto the field. The University of Michigan plays at Utah and I cannot wait to see the product on the field. What is all the hype about? And do we immediately see the results of better coaching?
** I am very curious about Michigan State and how the Spartans handle a road game at Western Michigan, a team that is better than most people think. I do not believe the Spartans will blow this team out and it should be a competitive game until superior talent and depth takes over in the second half.
** I plan on grilling and smoking meat. We are having a neighborhood party in the backyard where we will grill brats, chicken breasts and hot dogs and relax and enjoy good friends who happen to be our neighbors. They are sometimes clowns, as am I, but I love them any way.
** I want to go to a festival. I do not care if it is Arts, Eats and Beats or the Jazz festival or the Peach Festival in Romeo. My problem is my family is not a big fan of them. I might have to go by myself or drag one of the kids around who will demand we leave minutes after stepping out the car.
** And I look forward to a relaxing evening by the fire with beer or wine, chopping it up with friends. I do not need much. The songs of crickets in the background and laughter is all I want
Happy end of summer weekend.
