Random Comments on a Friday Morning

I am really glad that I don't have to go to work today as there are major delays on New Jersey Transit caused by a trespasser being killed on the tracks near Metro Park.  I would likely had to take the PATH train to Newark.  For many years my university has allowed a 4 day week over the summer.  We have the option of working from Monday - Thursday or Tuesday - Friday.  However starting next year we will be working a 30 hour week over 5 days during the summer.

It seems that for 3 days a year everyone is  a horse racing fan following the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont Stakes.  There is special interest this year as American Pharoh attemps to win the Triple Crown for the first time since 1978.  Over these years 13 horses ave won the first two legs, but lost in the Belmont.  Almost everybody will lose interest on Sunday.

Last night Golden State beat Cleveland 108-100 in the first game of the NBA finals.  Likewise Chicago leads Tampa Bay 1-0 in the Stanley Cup finals.  We are 1/3 of the way into the baseball season, yet pro basketball and hockey are still being played.  The more games they play, the more mondy they make.
