Friday Varia and Quick Hits

It’s feeling like spring here in North Dakotaland and the tans and browns of the long, dry, winter are giving way to just a bit of green. Temperatures should be in the 60s for the next week or so with occasional days in the 70s. My Orthodox friends should have a lovely Sunday to spend celebrating a socially-distant Easter.

It feels like baseball weather, and that makes it a good time for the Phils to enjoy a home series with the Mets. The Sixers continue to conserve and preserve down the stretch of the season and playing the Hawks and Spurs will make that a bit easier to do. The Cup guys are in Kansas for the annual Midwestern snoozefest, and the Formula 1 party is in Portugal for the second time in as many years. There’s a good bit of boxing this weekend with Andy Ruiz’s and Mick Conlan’s long awaited return to the ring, the seemingly ageless Dereck Chisora gives it a go against Joseph Parker, Dmity Bivol will batter some dude named Craig, and Sebastian “the Towering Inferno” Fundor is fighting in some WBC title eliminator. 

And now, for a word from our sponsor! Do check out the preview of Cynthia C. Prescott and Maureen S. Thompson’s Backstories: A Kitchen Table Talk Cookbook due out from the Digital Press at the University of North Dakota next month. Go here!
