A little bit ago I was talking about our overgrown weeds in our lawn. Last night I finally had a chance to go to war on them. I was only able to tackle the front and side of the yard but it’s progress right. Got them all mowed down and was able to finally get some weed killer and fertilizer on the grass. So hopefully we will see some results soon. Not to mention that it’s about that time of year where if we do not get any rain, I will have to start watering the lawn, ack.. We really need a sprinkler system. Just wish they didn’t cost so much!
The MLS kicks off tomorrow night. I’m pretty excited about the MLS this year. Not just because it’s soccer and I love soccer, BUT my home town has a team this year and I’m excited for them. Trust me if I still lived in Seattle I would be at that home opener/season opener tomorrow night. I hope they do well this year and talk has it that they may make it to the playoffs this year. Seattle Sounders FC baby. My other favorite team is FC Dallas. Pretty much since I live in the area and have been going to games the last couple of years. And of course in May Seattle will be coming to Dallas so I am GOING to this game, for sure! And I’m sure I will go to some other ones as well. So the season kicks off tomorrow night with Seattle Sounders FC hosting the New York Red Bulls and then the rest of the teams start off this weekend. Go Sounders..!!!
We have been following the Iditarod this last 9-10 days and it’s been pretty exciting. I was checking the updates and live GPS they have this year and it was showing what we figured would happen a few days ago. Looks like Lance Mackey will win the Iditarod this year. A couple hours ago he left White Mountain after a mandatory 8 hour layover/rest period and is on his way to Nome. Unless something MAJOR happens he pretty much has this victory wrapped up. The second and third place looks to be a pretty close one and they are into White Mountain checkpoint less than 30 minutes of each other. Sebastian Schnuelle checked in with 14 dogs and John Baker with only 10. It might be a good race for second later tonight.
I’m not sure it will happen, but we would love to fly up there next year for the ceremonial start and re-start of the race. Maybe even meet a couple of mushers but I’m sure they are far too busy for that. Good luck Lance and the world will see you in a few short hours under the arch.
