The familiar sounds of “Pomp and Circumstance” or “The Graduation March” will be heard on an almost daily basis over the next week as high schools in Ocean County host ceremonies for their graduating seniors.
While shocking and horrifying Sunday’s mass shooting at a nightclub in Orlando, is something most of us will likely forget very quickly. That might sound cold and callous but it’s not meant to be as we simply have become hardened to news like this.
I’m not much of a track and field guy, not because I don’t admire the athletic talents of the competitors but because it’s not a great spectator sport.
With that said I attended Wednesday’s NJSIAA Meet of Champions for two reasons, it was nearby at Central Regional High School and I wanted to see Donovan Catholic’s Alyssa Wilson perform in person. I was not disappointed.
To me Lindsey Nelson was the longtime play-by-play voice of the New York Mets, calling their games in the 60s and 70s as part of a Hall of Fame career. However at Donovan Catholic High School Lindsay Nelson (first name spelled with an a and not an e) is the freshman softball pitcher who yesterday led the Griffins to a 3-1 victory over Notre Dame in the Non-Public South “A” championship game at Stockton University.
I was not a Muhammad Ali fan so unlike much of what you might have heard and read over the weekend this will not be a tribute to one of my boyhood idols. In truth I became an Ali fan after he retired from boxing as I greatly admired how he lived his life during a 32 year battle with Parkinson’s disease which ultimately led to his death at the age of 74.
Former football players from Central Regional High School and Lacey Township High School will roll back the clock tomorrow when they meet in an alumni football game at Central’s Joseph J. Boyd Memorial Field at 7pm.
With Memorial Day having come and gone I know many of you are wondering when I will once again reveal my “Ten Commandments of the Beach.” It’s an annual tradition that is as much a part of summer as ice cream, running through sprinklers and strolling the boardwalk. Well today is not that day although it’s coming real soon.
