Sunday State of Mind: April 18th-April 24th

Another week come and gone, another Sunday State of Mind.

An always touching tribute, a statue was revealed
This week in Oklahoma this one should have stayed concealed
Poor Baker Mayfield, guy can’t catch a break
If I were him that statue would have ended up in a lake

Big loss in Chicago, Eloy Jimenez
Out for up to two months, so the doctor says
Add another name to the White Sox injury list
Tough break for a good team, that bat will be missed

A happier baseball note, it’s Miguel Cabrera
Joined the 3k hit club, maybe the last in this era
Only 32 other players have reached that career mark
Miggy one of the greatest to do it at the ballpark

NBA playoffs are here, and some teams are in trouble
Raptors, Bulls, Nets and Nuggets are all on the bubble
Mavs and Jazz, Grizz and Wolves both sitting at 2-2
We get action everyday as the games continue

If you’ve ever read this blog, you know we love NASCAR
Driving for 500 miles but not going far
The most famous track in all of motor sports
The Talladega Speedway, running today of course

Sunday State of Mind (SSM): May 10th-May 17th

Recurring blog alert! What I’m going to try and do here is throw together a stupid soliloquy on the previous week in sports at the end of each week. Ideally, I’m hoping to have these done by the end of the sports day each Sunday, hence the title.

So sit back, light some incense (or whatever you choose to light that relaxes you, UDS is a judgement free zone), and enjoy some sports serenity with this week’s Sunday State of Mind (SSM):

TaylorMade Driving Relief
Live sports, thank God, good grief
Rory and DJ took out Rickie and Matt
Went to a closest to the pin playoff
Rory stuck it on the pin, splat

UFC on ESPN: Overeem vs. Harris
Dana White continues to put on events, even if it’s careless
The undercard featured six bouts, and the main card five
Live sports are live sports, I suppose, glad they’re somewhat alive

The return of the Bundesliga
Some fútbol for the lads
Borussia Mönchengladbach took out Eintracht Frankfurt 3-1
A result, I believe, we all had

NASCAR came back as well
With Kevin Harvick taking first
I need live sports back so bad right now
Watching cars turn left even quenched my thirst
