1. Bob Gibson - The life of Bob Gibson ought to be celebrated after his passing this week. Gibson has been influential throughout the game, especially so for black baseball pitchers - a now rarity in the game. Also, if you, like me, learned of Gibson from mere historical intrigue, take a look at his baseball reference page which is absolutely sick.
2. Tampa Bay Lightning - Well, I didn't get to indulge in my annual "become-a-hockey-fan-during-playoffs" phase, but the Lightning now holds the Cup. Major congrats!
3. Lual Mayen - It is stories like Lual Mayen that truly gives me hope in mankind, and reinvigorate my by belief in the human spirit. Take a read, as I'm sure that you too would agree.
1. First Presidential Election - Nothing but a disaster. I said my piece on the kickoff of these debate season. In a weird way, though, it all feels like so long ago.
2. Unemployment - The rise of unemployment is troubling in this market, especially as other dominoes like the housing market, evictions, and the rise of COVID cases lay in the backdrop. MY heart goes out to those struggling to get by.
3. California Wildfires - They rage on...they continue to rage on. Super sad.
Trump Has COVID - This whole ordeal, I truly have no idea what to think. Seriously, the entire week of President Trump's positive COVID diagnosis has been...well, strange.
