Mad about the '60s
But even if this means goodbye to advertising super-salesman Don Draper and the Sterling Cooper and Partners agency, it won't be the finish of retro style. Roger would sooner muss his silver hair than serve an Old Fashioned (whiskey) in a Tom ...

Pastrnak, Ekblad playing beyond their years

MARK WISNIEWSKI with Daniel Woodrell
The galleys make a stack against the wall, and I don't really know why I pick up one book from the stack and not another. I saw the title, So I parted with that agent, a good move in that now I could do what I wanted, but, then, of course, you need ...

Kentucky Joins Sports Pantheon of All-Time Near-Misses as Perfect Bid Ends
A victory over the New York Giants in the 2008 Super Bowl would have given them the first 19-0 season in NFL history, after they already had become the first team to finish a regular season 16-0. And the 2010 team with John Wall also had title ...

Is Hillary Clinton Any Good at Running for President?
Four years later, it was Nate Silver's world (all that mattered were the fundamentals), and the rest of us — Obama and Romney included — were just living in it, trying to parse which pollster's numbers were skewed and whose models were best. At the ...
Going forward, it will be interesting to see how the Kentucky program handles this defeat after reaching the Final Four for a fourth time in five years, but winning only in 2012. Remember, UK lost last year’s championship game to Connecticut and... And the 2010 team with John Wall also had title aspirations before falling in a regional final. Still, it won’t be as bad as what the Soviet hockey team faced after losing the “Miracle on Ice” game to the U. S. at the 1980 Winter Olympics in Lake Placid, New York. That team had won four consecutive Olympic golds but was undone by a gang of mostly college kids, and the defeated Russians admit the loss still haunts them.

The silver lining is that the problems on the run were new. In my pre-race report , I noted the lack of English speakers with the registration process. On race day morning, I was a bit concerned heading over to the transition area that it would be more of the same. For anyone looking to do this race in the future, I would strongly suggest you stay at a hotel near the transition. Nothing specifically wrong with it. The issue was having the schlep over to the transition area the day before the race, and all the way back. And then again on the morning of the race, and all the way back (for the swim start, which was over by the Cintermex Center). The time on feet in the days/hours ahead of a race are best kept to a minimum. One of the reasons I love racing is the opportunity to reconnect with old friends, or get to know old acquaintances better. The sun never really found a way to come through during my stay, and the report for the day was calling for rain during the bike portion of the race. Since this race location doesn’t allow for a pre-ride of the bike course, this was making me a bit nervous. The most worrisome portion of the bike would be the cobbles in and around the transition area. Anyone who knows knows that wet cobbles are no fun.
The day was just like any other day in those days. I got home from school to see my mother’s car in the driveway. Jimmy, Donna and I had torched a J while walking home and I was a little bit buzzed. I was not expecting Mom to be home so I looked at my watch. but my watch confirmed that indeed she was home early. I headed up the walk and opened the front door. I wanted to see what was going on. We had a Formica table with chrome legs and matching chairs in the kitchen. She was engaged in animated conversation with a man I did not know. He was slim with salt and pepper hair, worn long for a man of his age in those days, although it was a good bit shorter than mine. His most striking feature was his mustache, a long waxed and twisted handlebar that curled upwards from the corners of his mouth. They appeared inquisitive and knowing at the same time. A walking stick with a silver handle leaned against the table, next to him. It looked like these two had been there for a while. The stranger went quiet and looked at me when I entered the room and my mother erupted in uncontrollable giggles when she turned and saw me. “Sun,” she said to me. I should.
