On my sports calendar today - Bruins, Red Sox, Gold Coast Titans and more

Another beautiful day here in Boston!  Not as hot as yesterday but sunny.  Not happy that the thunderstorm last night caused the cancellation of our touch rugby games.

Another HUGE game for the Bruins tonight.  They really have some momentum now after 2 wins at home and they head out to Vancouver full of confidence for game 5.  I'll be glued to the TV screen tonight and cheering for a Bruins win.

The Red Sox now have the lead in the AL East after a sweep over the Yankees!  Nothing better than beating the Yankees and to sweep is just the best.  Even better is the fact that it is the second sweep of the year.  Hard to find too much fault in the Red Sox these days, after a rough start they have really hit their stride.  Still quite early but the Red Sox have a 2 game lead over the Yankees and 3 games over the Rays in the AL East.  Sure it will be a battle for the rest of the year.  David Ortiz with 15HR so far this year is really benefting from having Adrain Gonzalez in the line up who has a league tying 55 RBIs so far this season.

Got to mention a great win by the Gold Coast Titans over the St George-Illawarra Dragons early this morning Boston time.  Managed to get up early enough to catch the second half and was great to see the Titans get up for a win.  The Titans have struggled this year while it is only the second loss for St George who are on top of the table.

Right now I am watching Aussie Lleyton Hewitt play Kohlschreiber in the QFs at the Gary Weber Open in Halle, Germany.  Still in the first set and looks like a tight game.  Hewitt got a break in the first round, he was scheduled to play Federer who withdrew.

Another full sports day with the main event definately the Bruins v Canucks later tonight.  GO BRUINS!
