Summer doldrums

I have not had anything to write about since returning from Kansas City last Monday (June 13). I was so glad to get out of the hotel, because not only did the television reception go in and out on numerous occasions, but the FOX affiliate in Kansas City was not available.

Sadly, the hotel I stayed at in Overland Park chose DISH Network for its television service. I hate DISH Network. It is beyond awful. I’m not a big fan of Nex-Tech cable here in Russell, but anything is better than DISH. Anything.

DISH Network is currently locked in a major dispute with Tribune Broadcasting. DISH has opted to take all of Tribune’s local channels off of its service. One of the local stations affected happened to be the FOX affiliate in Kansas City, WDAF. Admittedly, the weekend I was in KC was not a big deal to be missing FOX, but had I been there this weekend, I could not have watched the U.S. Open or the Royals game on Saturday night.

If it were the NFL season, I would be far, far angrier. However, the television problems were a good reason to get the heck out of dodge when I did.

I have not done a blessed thing since getting back. It’s simply too hot. I’ve gone to Hays a few times, but each time, it’s been after 7 p.m. in order to avoid the hottest part of the day. I have to go back to Hays Thursday for my next appointment with Crista. Thankfully that will get over by 10, so it won’t be so bad.

My parents are out tonight. They went to the casino in Dodge City. They’ll be back tomorrow. Gave me a chance to do my laundry and wash all the dirty dishes. Unfortunately, one of my metal water bottles sprung a leak. Not a big deal. I’ve got plenty.

Cleveland won the NBA championship last night. YIPEEE. I could care less about the NBA.  Haven’t cared in over 25 years about the NBA.

Las Vegas is getting an NHL team. Another prime example of Gary Bettman’s stupidity. Yes, Las Vegas is a great place for hockey. If Bettman had his way, he’d also have teams in Rio de Janeiro and Kinshasha.

What did Canada ever do to Bettman? It’s been proven time and again Canada could support 12 NHL teams. Yet there are only seven. What a joke.
