Lord, let it be Monday

56572 can justly be taken to task for poor sports coverage. There are other blogs for that with all the stats and armchair quarterbacking one needs. What did seem odd this morning is that both varsity basketball teams lost by twenty points last night. Look in the stats for the last time that happened. Hope it wasn't the tainted hamburger at school.
