Yesterday’s Sport News

Yesterday, the Detroit Tigers finished their short, miserable season in last place. The Houston Astros made it to the playoffs again, but Justin Verlander won’t pitch. He’s undergoing surgery and will miss this post season and the entire 2021 season. He’s 37 and I wonder if he’ll return to baseball when he’s healed up.

So, I’m torn between whether I’ll root for the Astros or the Chicago White Sox. Guess I’ll pull for both and see how far they get. But if the Astros and the White Sox both win the ALWS, they’ll face each other in the ALDS and I’ll really be torn.

The Detroit Lions won yesterday and Team Penske’s drivers finished in 7th, 13th and 14th place for NASCAR and 1st and 7th place for IMSA.

New Car

I just got home from Mom and Dad’s. Dad grilled ribs.

Shortly after I got there, Dad handed me this box and said he got it for me. At first, I thought it was a box of M&M’s, but then I opened it. Guess I’ve been talking a bit about my two new hobbies, collecting 1/24 scale diecast cars and watching NASCAR races.

It’s still not much of a collection yet, but now I have three cars to show. The new car is a Pontiac Grand Prix.

Normality

Maybe it was the return of NASCAR on Sunday. Yesterday I was very productive and today I’m pretty motivated. Things just feel more in place now. I always had an interest in racing, but never really followed the sport. I think that’s going to change, at least until baseball comes back.

I look forward to the next race.
