I cannot believe it, the Thunder lost to the Warriors

Mukilteo, WA, 06-01-2016 Wednesday: Friends, I said we would talk about the results of Game Seven from Monday night today, seeing as how I put together TWO posts, one for Monday, the other for Tuesday, regarding the sad state of affairs of education in America.  I have received some great response over my pair of articles and I thank you for emailing and even calling me over how the current education system teaches the young folks nothing but garbage. 
Ah, well, now onto the more serious stuff, folks, I am still shedding tears over the disaster that befell the Oklahoma Thunder in Oakland on Monday night.  I think every fan of the Thunder KNEW in his or her heart on Saturday night that since we could not pull off a win in Game 6 and thereby knock the reining NBA champion OUT, that heading to California would be a DISASTER and DISASTER it was. 
Oh, the Thunder began strong but could never get past low double-digit leads and the Warriors kept returning to their power mode, hitting three-pointers with deathly accuracy.  Klay Thompson and Step Curry are amazing, there is no disputing that; but still, I kept hoping against hope that the combined talents of Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant would lift the team to the championship caliber that we fans believe it is.  It was not to happen on Monday night.
Fans of the Seattle Supersonics such as me and now of the Thunder from long-distance, I hoped we would pull out a win in Oracle Arena on Monday night.  We hoped, prayed, dropped to our knees begging the Lord, ‘please, let us win a championship, Lord, what more do we need to do as fans?’ 
Well, it was clear to many of us that the Lord was rooting for the Golden State Warriors, they kept holding close to our guys until the last five minutes or so of the game when they began pulling away from our team.  As the minutes dwindled, our boys kept attempting shots we knew they could not make because they were desperate, the balls went up, the Warriors made the rebounds and the Thunder went down to defeat. 
Maybe next year, folks, maybe next year but this year, well, we can root for ‘King James’ or we can root for a team whom many believe will repeat.  Out of loyalty to the Thunder who once was the Supersonics, I will root for the Cleveland Cavaliers.  Someone has to spoil the party so on Thursday night my wife and I will plant ourselves in front of the television and will watch the first game of what should be an amazing series.  How about you—will you root for the Cavs or will you root for the current champions, champs who need someone to give them a lesson on how ‘it is.’ 
Please, join me tomorrow and over at the secondary blog today as we have more phenomenal Beverly Carrick original oil paintings.       
Thank you,

This is a photo of I, your host, back in the 1980's when I was the Executive Chef at a country club in the Napa Valley but for security purposes, we have scaled some of our personal info back.  However, I spent many years working in professional foodservice, having begun as a young boy working for my father in his restaurant over on the coast in Pismo Beach.  Foodservice is in my blood and it is something I still do actively every day in my late eighties in Washington State.

MORE TO COME FROM THE ROLLING STONES



WEDNESDAY, JUNE 01, 2016
In 1993, Mick Jagger put out his third solo album, “Wandering Spirit.”  Fans proclaim this album to be among the best of the three solo efforts (counting this one) that the vocalist of the Rolling Stones has released.  Jagger spent seven months working on this album and had numerous musical friends join him such as Billy Preston (keyboards), Jim Keltner (famed session drummer), and Flea (bass) from the Red Hot Chili PeppersJagger did well with the album although we miss what some of the tunes might have sounded like had the rest of the Stones joined him but alas, it was not to be.  Please, use our link so you can go to Amazon.com and pick the CD up in the format, the condition, and the price that works for you—you will be so glad you did.
