The Mavericks are being thoroughly manhandled by the old men down south of here. Dampier is a sad situation. The guy looks like he ought to be able to have his way on the court. But he is a non-factor. Kidd looks his age right now. And Dirk? I REALLY like him, so don't get me wrong. Probably the best big-man shooter ever. But as I have said before, he is not the kind of guy you can ride to a championship.
Again, I am trying to force it right now. Truth be known, after about 3 minutes of watching, my mind has left the building.
I can't remember if I have mentioned that Beverly and I are gearing up for a trip to Scotland in three weeks. We will be traveling with some friends of ours from Decatur (also named Ross, but no relation other than in Christ). We will locate my grandfather's childhood home in Inverness, stay on the Isle of Skye, visit castles and walk St. Andrews. We will spend a couple of days in London, as well. Our friends were a married truck-driving team, and they have driven in Scotland before. So we will travel the country by car.
