Boston Red Sox 9 Florida Marlins 0... UCONN Women Big East Champs!

Tim Wakefield pitched three scoreless innings to earn the victory in a 9-0 shellacking of the Florida Marlins. All the pre-spring training talk about a lack of offense seems trivial right now. The bullpen looked good, the whole effort looked good. You can't ask for anything more.

Last night at the XL Center in Hartford, Connecticut, the University of Connecticut women Huskies basketball team wrapped up the Big East Championship with a 60-32 thrashing of West Virginia. Kalana Greene was the catalyst to power the strong Connecticut effort. She earned the most valuable player of the tournament award. UCONN is now six wins away (NCAA tournament) from their second straight undefeated season. Remember, every one of those 72 straight victories have come by ten points or more. THAT'S AMAZING! Do you believe in miracles? I do.

That's it...short but sweet on this still dark Wednesday moring. Nadia has come back to town for an eight day (maybe less?) visit. Right now she's sleeping and I'm typing. That's just the way I like it.

Hartford and all of Connecticut was a happy place last night and I'm sure many people just awakening will bask in the glory of another UCONN win. Click on the title of this post for more of something and as always, BE WELL. See ya.

Maybe when you go to bed early, Nadia sneaks over to the keyboard cuz that's the way she likes it. Will she be whipping up some good cooking this coming week?

Tell her a big Hello for me.

I just got a text from WBZ TV-Nomar Garciaparra is retiring with the BoSox. It's on my blog now.

I will, BFW. Thanks! Michael, I think this was a logical choice for him. He made a name for himself in Boston. And then the injuries...and the grumbling.

Great to hear from you both.
