A season that will come to define him

A season that will come to define him

Kind of a hectic weekend, but I did manage to catch a few sporting events:

– Roy Halladay is having the season that will define his career. Now if only the rest of the Jays can deliver a playoff spot…

– I think if Doc genuinely wants to stay in Toronto as long as they’re competing for the pennant (and I believe him when he says he does), the Jays need to sustain their winning form. For this reason I think JP should go get another bat, hopefully a true clean-up hitter. Think of it as a gesture of goodwill heading into contract negotiations with the best pitcher in baseball. Can Pedro hit cleanup?

– I was totally digging the Gulf Porsche 917-inspired shirt Federer was wearing at Roland-Garros. Ok, I don’t know for sure that’s what he was going for, but as a fan of the 24 Hours of LeMans, it’s the first thing that came to mind.

– There was a hockey game on Saturday night? I wasn’t aware: it is June, after all…

– Jenson Button wins again. I found out as I flipped to the race between French Open commercials. My interest wanes further.

Inspiration for Federer Fashion?

– It’s a credit to NASCAR, a sport I loathe, that I watched the final eight laps of the Pocono 500 with more interest than what I saw of the F1 race – Tony Stewart coddling his empty gas tank to victory made for compelling viewing.

– Loved the interviews with the 1989 Blue Jays during Friday’s telecast, especially the one with Tony Fernandez. Sam Cosentino’s love for the game comes through every time he speaks. Too bad only 15,000 fans showed up for the anniversary event (COME ON TORONTO, WAKE THE FUCK UP!!!).

– Is it just me or could a movie of the French Open Final be made  starring Gary Oldman as Robin Soderling and Quentin Tarantino as Roger Federer? (clicky the names for pics)

– Hope Rafael Nadal doesn’t need surgery. I think I speak for all tennis fans when I wish him a speedy recovery and a strong return to the All-England club.
