 The heat lingers but this summer is almost finished.
A true sign of fall approaching here is football players
in full pads fist fighting in the 100 degree heat. Like the
swallows return to Capistrano the sight of behemoths
means cooler weather ahead. American football has in
the last thirty years become the favorite American pastime
surpassing baseball which has been around for 150 years.
Understandable, faster action more characters and thugs.
Still on a hotter than hell summer afternoon nothing beats
a nice baseball game and a cool one. Even better, when it's
really miserably hot the H town team just close the roof
and play indoors. You gotta love modern technology.

  A quick tip of the old Rockcast cap to all my friends born in
August. The unofficial Sons and Daughters of Leo Club, with
a handful of Virgos tossed in. I have never figured out how so
many people I am friends with have August birthdays. Over
the years it seems we all gravitate to each other. Why even my
Wife and Daughter are August babies. So to fill in your own
personal August playlist here are some of my fav summer cuts
as well as a few suggestions. Beat the heat, crank this up and
enjoy and Happy August!
