I have to say after running outside yesterday that the pollen is really starting to get bad.  Don't get me wrong I would much rather have temperatures in the 70's and 80's even if it does bring the pollen out than to have temps in the 40's like it has been most of baseball season.  Speaking of baseball season the Colonials went 1-1 this past week beating Hopewell and losing to Dinwiddie, we will be at home this week against Prince George and Meadowbrook.  The Virginia baseball team ended it's 2 game losing streak yesterday beating Georgia Tech, the Cavs will try to win the series against the Yellow Jackets later today.  Kyle Busc won Friday nights Nationwide race at Texas and last night he won the Sprint Cup race as well making it a clean sweep for him this weekend.  The Nascar Truck Series will race at Rockingham today a track I think the Sprint Cup Series should still race at, besides Richmond I have seen more races at Rockingham than any other track.  Well it looks like another heat wave will hit the area by the end of the week with temps reaching into the lower 90's.  MICKEY

Well I have to say I did not stay up to see the finish of lasts nights game but Louisville Cardinals beat the Michigan Wolverines 82-76.  I wish they would start these games earlier because the older I get the harder it is for me to stay up and see the finish.  The Virginia baseball team improved to 30-3 last night holding on to beat Wake Forest 9-7, next up for the Cavs is a game on Wednesday against Radford before heading down to Atlanta next weekend to face Georgia Tech.  The Colonial Heights baseball team will be at home tonight against Hopewell with the first pitch scheduled at 6pm.  Well its going to be very warm today with temps climbing into the mid 80's, the only bad thing about the warm temps now is that the pollen is really starting to get bad which is causing my allergies act up.  MICKEY

The Michigan Wolverines beat Syracuse last night 61-56  and the Louisville Cardinals beat Wichita State 72-68 to advance the championship game tomorrow night in Atlanta.  I will be rooting for the Wolverines to win tomorrow night.  The Virginia baseball team improved to 28-3 on the season with a come from behind win at Wake Forest 7-6, the Cavs scored 5 run in the top of the 9th to come away with the win and will face the Deacons again this afternoon.  The Sprint Cup Series will be in Virginia this afternoon at the Martinsville Speedway where Jimmie Johnson will start from the pole and by the end of today's race I am sure there will be some drivers with some short fuses.  It does look like we will finally get some good baseball weather this week with temps in the 70's and 80's all week, the Colonials will be at home Tuesday night against Hopewell and will be at Dinwiddie on Thursday night.  MICKEY
