From the weekend: rugby 7’s from #Glasgow2014. Been watching a lot of these Games since last week (in need for more int’l sports after the Winter Olympics & World Cup), and for rugby, be on the look out for it to grow. Though its biggest event the Rugby World Cup is next year, it will return to the Olympics in two years from now. And though the US will come in as defending gold medalists from when it was last contested in Paris in 1924, they will be huge underdogs to the traditional superpowers such as New Zealand & South Africa who contested the gold medal final and the Springboks came away victorious over the All Blacks.

Adding to the book collection, a reminder of what happened in my Bay Area backyard last summer. And note at bottom left, that’s the signature of Dennis Connor, who has a great comeback story when he was the skipper who let the America’s Cup get away from USA control in 1983 when his boat lost the 7th & deciding race to Australia II in Rhode Island. But four years later, Connor got his revenge & redemption when his boat swept away the Aussies on Australian waters in 1987. So, pretty nice to have a piece of yachting history in my library.

This weekend, this group reunites one more time in LA to celebrate the upcoming occasion of two of their own about to not only be married, but also becoming parents to a new baby. And I can be fortunate that I’ve been along for the ride with the season 1 cast of #areyoutheone from the beginning. The moment in the finale of all these 20 people coming together with their perfect match & winning the largest prize in MTV history - $1 million - is one of my favorite moments of 2014. And considering the huge success of that first season, no doubt they’ve given the season 2 class a very tough act to follow. Hope you all are enjoying yourselves in SoCal and can’t wait to watch the reunion & season 2 in September.

#nowplaying @imaginedragons “It’s Time.” One of my favorite lyrics in my playlist is the chorus of the song that introduced us to Dan Reynolds & friends, “It’s time to begin, isn’t it? I get a little bit bigger but then I’ll admit, I’m just the same as I was, Now don’t you understand, That I’m never changing who I am.” It’s something I can relate to & is part of those words I live by everyday.

#Repost from my bro in law: gosh I wish I could be w/ him & sis this weekend. They’re in Las Vegas once again for his bday and once I go there hopefully sometime later this year (perhaps bday month), I want to check out The LINQ, that new Farris wheel they just opened up. And they also spotted Tyrone Corbin from the Kings coaching staff at the Paris hotel buffet earlier tonight, just back from a Kings win at Summer League, NBA in town for closing weekend of the tournament, along with Lady Gaga.
