After a blog-less Saturday while hosting a Mother's Day barbeque/badminton/backyard blast for about 30 people, cleanup accomplished so rest of today spells respite; will be filled by lounging and communing with sports TV. First time in months.

                       The lovely Mrs. Notes and daughter are shopping, so it'll be Russia-Slovakia, a little Mets vs Lincecum, Celtic-Cavs, golf, Yanks-Sox, Hawks-Canucks, and maybe Hallo Bundesliga....

                       Max Afinigenov gives Russia a 1-0 lead with about five min to go in the first...far side from right circle

                   Monday we'll start looking at NYR ghost rosters (as promised, and we'll assume maybe a $57.8 million cap)
