It’s been a while, but I am getting back into the swing of blogging this summer. In other words, I feels like it’s time for a few quick hits and varia.
It’s good sports weekend with the F1 chaps at Hungaroring, the NASCARlers at the Brickyard, and Indy Car in Toronto. If you’re a real sports fan, though, you’re getting up early to watch England v. Pakistan in cricket. Pakistan took the first test in the series at Lords. If this test series isn’t being read as a critique of England’s conflicted history with its colonial past, then people don’t know how to read sports as politics.
