Washington lineman Albert Haynesworth is skipping the teams mandatory minicamp this week. He apprantly is unhappy that he will be moved to nose tackle in the team's new defensive scheme. Poor baby. It seems to me that when a team lavishes a 100 million dollar contract on a player they can use him as they see fit. That's right Albert Haynesworth isnt reporting to work even thought he's earning 100 MILLINON DOLLARS! It would be unbelievable if we hadnt seen it before.
Boston will try and bounce back tonight after the Lakers shellacked them in Game 6. It's one game for the title at the Staples Center. I would imagine the celebrity meter will be running high.

Songs of the Day (from my I-pod)
From Hank To Hendrix-Neil Young (1992) from his beautiful "Harvest Moon" cd. The prolific Mr. Young can write songs like this all day long.
From A Distance-Nanci Griffith (1987) a beautiful Julie Gold song that Griffith made her own. You may have heard the Bette Midler version but I prefer the "Queen of Folkabilly" I've got tickets to see her in Superior in August at Big Top Chatuqua.
