I had been planning to post an original entry (mostly) that I have been working on for some time on the best comics of 2016 according to EW but it's just not completely baked yet.
AND I am posting this Monday morning because I took the day off yesterday, at least off from the blog, and didn't even load the pages in my browser. I had work to do to catch up, as it seems I am always trying to catch up, so I just did that work, took the dogs foe walk, and then aside from several household chores, I logged time resting and reading, which is what I like to do on Sundays.
Tonight (as in Sunday night, you get it) is the NBA All Star Game. If the season ended today, the Detroit Pistons, my favorite NBA team, would have the last wild card slot, like they did last year, and would face the Cleveland Cavaliers in the first round of the playoffs, just like last year. I hope to see them in this same spot or even one or two slots better in April. My other favorite team, the Golden State Warriors, has the best record in the NBA and home court throughout the playoffs, again I hope this situation remains static. The Dallas Mavericks used to be my favorite team in the west, and I do still like them as I like their owner (see yesterday's blog), and so I root for them, but they are not doing so well this year, despite a recent surge. Cuban says the Mavs are a playoff team. They're only three games off the pace, but they have a lot of teams to battle. Stranger things have happened.
Reflecting on the NBA is fun. I am rooting for my team. I know the players need a break, but I really hate the break in constant games. It makes me less interested in sports news. I turned off Sports Center this morning (and now I mean Monday) after only about 20 minutes.
Anyway, this article about George Blaha caught my eye, and I wanted to save it on my blog for my posterity and maybe sharing it with the few readers who might be interested, other than you, of course, Mom. You were kind enough to watch a lot of Pistons games with me and Dad, Mom. I appreciate that.
George Blaha has been the voice of the Pistons my entire life (even though I am over 40, I was not listening to or watching the Pistons until I was 18 or 19), and so I am very fond of the man and his dulcet tones.
Thanks for all the great years, George.

Reflect and connect.
Have someone give you a kiss, and tell you that I love you.
I miss you so very much, Mom.
Talk to you tomorrow, Mom.

NOTE on time: When I post late, I had been posting at 7:10 a.m. because Google is on Pacific Time, and so this is really 10:10 EDT. However, it still shows up on the blog in Pacific time. So, I am going to start posting at 10:10 a.m. Pacific time, intending this to be 10:10 Eastern time. I know this only matters to me, and to you, Mom. But I am not going back and changing all the 7:10 a.m. times. But I will run this note for a while. Mom, you know that I am posting at 10:10 a.m. often because this is the time of your death.
