Breakfast With Lance Smith - Baseball - College Football - Breaking News

Thursday==>Good afternoon everyone. I hope everyone out there in cyberspace is having a great day.

This morning your favorite Sunshine State blogger’s day got off to a great start.  At 9:00am I met up with Lance Smith for a great breakfast at Linda’s Winter Park Diner, at the corner of Fairbanks Avenue and Harold Avenue here in Winter Park.

Lance is a co-founder of the mega-successful Cutting Edge Carpet, Inc., in Orlando, with stores in Jacksonville, Gainesville, Ocala, Melbourne, Daytona Beach and Lakeland. Check them out at:

He grew up in my hometown, Bartow, FL, and is the son of my high school buddy Frank “Bubba” Smith. He and my son Bill III aka The Bill are close friends.

The food was excellent and we did some much needed/wanted catching-up and that was nice.

So, Lance==>Thanks for breakfast. It was great being with you.

Moving on ...

As anticipated, yesterday was a activity “day-off,” as directed, following my biopsy procedure on Tuesday. Man, that was an awkward sentence ... oh well ... 

I spent most of the day and evening watching baseball ...

The Yankees hit 5 HRs in support of starting pitcher Masahiro Tanaka, winning 13-8 to win the 3-game series at that fetid cesspool known as Fenway Park. 

Down 11-1 after 3 innings, the FuckSox rallied to make it a close game, requiring us to call in our closer Andrew Miller to wrap up our 5-1 road trip.

The Bronx Bombers have today off and then will begin a 3-game series against Tampa Bay at Yankee Stadium, The House That Greed and Ego Built.

Moving on ...

The College Football Season is about to get underway and that is good for Billi Pod because he loves watching college football almost as much as he loves watching baseball ... so ...

Tonight he plans to remain in the cool and comfortable confines of his apartment, in front of his 42” flat screen TV watching ...

6:00pm==>UCF vs. FIU, carried locally on CBSSP;

8:00pm==>W. Kentucky vs. Vanderbilt, carried locally on SEC or 8:30==>Michigan vs. Utah, on FS1

So ... my loyal and faithful readers and followers, you are now up-to-date.

Breaking news==>WOW!! Tom Brady wins and the defiant Kentucky clerk loses and ... The Donald promises to support whoever wins the GOP nomination ... WOW!!



Yesterday’s mileage==>1.44 miles (or, 3,155 steps)

Total mileage for 2015==>995.75 miles (average 4.06 miles per day)
