looking for some summer tv to fill that hole in your schedule when you were abandoned by game of thrones and its cruelly brief 10 week run? biggest buzz goes to ray donovan starring liev schreiber, jon voight, james woods, elliot gould and roseanna arquette among others. starts on showtime on june 30 but the pilot has already "leaked." expect some la noir notes lighting up your optic nerve endings. somewhat skeptical but good cast.
nytimes has a rundown of some other summer offerings.
could be an interesting day in sport though im not yet convinced i will completely absorbed. the final round of the us open is underway and the network airing it is happy to see one of its most marketable stars clinging to a one stroke advantage atop the leaderboard. no, not tiger who flamed out of contention early. its good ol' phil mickelson who has yet to win the open in career and whose birthday it is for good measure. plenty of weepy encomiums to come should he prevail. mickelson tees off in about an hour.
and just when you thought there was no more soccer to had til next season (what, noone was thinking that?) eight national teams take centerstage in a warmup tournament of sorts down in brasil prior to their hosting of next summers world cup. among the teams participating are brasil, uruguay, italy, spain and mexico along with japan, nigeria and tahiti. they are the winners of their most recent federation cups (six in all) the host team and the prior world cup victors. this afternoon at three and six on espn are mexico v italy and spain v uruguay respectively.
and the capper tonight is game five of the nba finals between the heat and the spurs. its two a piece so whoever wins will be much better positioned yada yada... looks like an eight o'clock tip off or there abouts.

golf has a psa running during the us open to encourage quicker play on the course. what kind of a scourge must it be for them to do that, or is that the only problem they have left now that theyve conquered racism and belly putters?

the irony was somewhat lost on my dentist that his story about needing to school his proctologist on bedside manner might not exactly be appropriate moments before he put his fingers in my mouth. that i gagged uncomfortably on the cotton dental rolls moments later was entirely coincidental.
first meal at aka my bike seat was stolen. second to last meal at alias the lights on my bike were stolen. got to hand it to the scumbags on clinton street, they are nothing if not devotees of symmetry.
