Mental Dental Floss

Things are not looking good in “Trophy Town” this week.  On Sunday, the Boston Red Sox were mathematically eliminated from post-season baseball play.  On the same day, the New England Patriots lost a game they should have won.  The National Hockey League lock out threatens to end any plans for a trip to the (insert current corporate owner’s name here) Garden for Bruins action.  So far, I haven’t heard anything about the Boston Celtics on the local sports radio megaphone, WEEI.

Is today the day some news will come through the air about the 17-time World Champion winners?  Could a trivial piece of news about Kevin Garnett’s glasses send Boston sports fans spiraling to the edge of the ledge?  Pre-season play begins in just 11 days.

What does it all mean?

I think it means “time to shut down sports radio for a while.”  If there is such a thing as mental dental floss, I need it to scrape away the meaningless sports trivia from my brain.  Can a person empty their brain of all the “sound and fury signifying nothing” that passes for news, sports, and weather?  I hope so.

The answer is probably in the fall garden.

With the days getting shorter, there’s a lot to do.  Let’s turn off the radio and think about something better in the garden.

How is your fall garden shaping up?

    Plans for garden have to be reavulated, while I felt a perfect sunny spot, I only just realized that there would be a severe water shortage as there is no way to get the water to that location. Aghh, so scouting for a new spot once again. : )
