Fall has started its elegant slide into winter her as the occasional snows become more frequent and the cooling days outpace the warming days here in North Dakotaland. This weekend, we’ll ceremonially retire the lawnmower to the shed and move the snow-blower to the garage: a seasonal ritual of there ever was one.
This weekend will reward hunkering down in a comfortable chair with a book or some television. While my Ohio State game was canceled because The COVID and no one hate life enough to look forward to the Eagles-Giants game on Sunday, the F1 guys make a return to Istanbul Raceway Park with its brilliant Tilke designed track. The sports cars are racing at Sebring for 12 hours on Saturday. The evening concludes with the Bud Crawford – Kell Brook fight (with some interesting, if not exactly “must see,” undercards).
