The first game today is against a formidable and familiar opponent, Dix Hills Heat. The game is a must won for ISA United, if they want any chance of a 1st place finish. With no playoff, it is the best record after 5 games. United come away with a 2-0 win, and move within one game of a first place finish.
This day in history "On this day in 1990, fossil hunter Susan Hendrickson discovers three huge bones jutting out of a cliff near Faith, South Dakota. They turn out to be part of the largest-ever Tyrannosaurus rex skeleton ever discovered, a 65 million-year-old specimen dubbed Sue, after its discoverer."
Kyle has a great weekend of soccer. Their last game, they are down 1-0 against a U17 team. This is not supposed to be....A pep talk from the coach, and the 2nd half is a blowout. United wins 4-1, putting them in contention. Dix Hills needs to beat East Islip...and they do. This brings all three team to only having a single loss. United takes the 1st place position due to goal differentials. Good thing they scored those 4 goals in the last game.
Luke and I play some soccer back home to break in his new cleats.
Some good fishing at West Lake before dinner. I make two great casts for Luke and he hooks two really nice sized bass.
Chinese food for dinner. Olympics closing ceremony on the TV. Pink Floyd covered by Mike and the Mechanics....
So far, the closing ceremony is better than the opener...

P.S. Don't miss out on the Shooting Stars the next couple of nights. The annual Perseid meteor shower peaked in the wee hours of Sunday, Aug. 12, providing a dazzling celestial light show for stargazers lucky enough to have dark skies and clear weather for the event.
