Random Stuff

Nothing much is going on except it is very hot and my day consists of driving to work, staying indoors all day, picking up Benjamin and playing with him in the house. Can't wait until things cool down so we can take him for walks in the stroller.

Couple thoughts:
Redskins training camp is here. If it cools down I may head over to an afternoon session as their camp is in Ashburn, not far at all from Casa Benjamin. Redskins Training Camp Preview here.

D.C. United lost 2-1 to Salt Lake the other night for their first loss in 14 games. They are comfortably ahead in their conference so I'm not worried as it had to end sometime. Even the club has moved on from the loss. Read more here.

The Nats and Orioles made no deals at the baseball trade deadline. I don't know what the Orioles plan is but it looks like the Nats will try hard to sign Alfonso Soriano, who will be a free agent after this season, and build the team with Ryan Zimmerman and Soriano as the show pieces. Stay tuned...

George Pelecanos has a new book coming out next week. Dave talks about him here in his blog. The next time you are in a bookstore, pick up one of Pelecano's books. For more, the Post online had a chat with him this afternoon.

Vacation in less than two weeks. We are driving to Pawleys Island, South Carolina for a week of relaxation. Can't wait to get some golf in and see Benjamin playing around on the beach....
