Some things just never change — like the Farley Hawks getting assigned to the strong side of tournament brackets. That’s called respect.
The swimming pool has become a big part of the Ankeny Kramers’ summers. We go just about every week, and we have a blast.
Today it was Cascade Falls in Ankeny. Gramma came with us. The highlight of the day was Maisa racing me down the double slides. She won two out of three.
Maisa and I played catch the last two nights — her first attempt to do so since getting the brace off her arm.
I’m happy to report that she’s never thrown better, and she’s making good progress at catching fly balls.
Dodger pitchers Zack Greinke or Clayton Kershaw have combined for 72 consecutive scoreless innings. What a stat.
Here’s another stat for you: Kershaw is the first pitcher since 1900 with three straight starts allowing 0 runs, striking out 10+, walking none. (From Elias Sports Bureau via ESPN)
