Mark’s Musings – June 28, 2017

Our community stood tall last week. When it was first announced that the remains of Private Eugene “Gene” J.

I turned it off. Thinking that the Cavs had game three well in hand, I thought, “Well, enough of that. They will sweep this series and get ready for Golden State.” Not to be, said the Celtics. Too many three point attempts and not enough points in the paint. But with lousy shooting for most […]
