  • Random thoughts from a random...

    Why is it that all the big quadrennial or biennial world sporting events occur in even numbered years? For example the Summer Olympics, Winter Olympics and World Cup soccer all happen in even numbered years leaving us pitifully deprived in odd numbered years.

    Luckily, the Tour De France is an annual event that gives me something to look forward to in the dog days of summer when baseball is marching toward the All-Star break and my fantasy baseball teams are already out of contention.
