Day Two - On the Ground in Tennessee

After morning sessions of birdwatching and driving practice, we spent the rest of Sunday with family--eating, watching sports in HD and playing with a passel of grand nieces and nephews. Kay's grand nieces and nephews range from age 18 to 2. The youngest four on hand belong to her niece Dana, who lives nearby in Nashville with her husband Shane.

The two older girls played cards with Kallie and Erin most of the day. The younger kids cruised the house finding things to do.

The sports highlight of the day was LSU's 9-7 comeback win over UC-Irvine in Game Two of the NCAA superregional in Baton Rouge. The Anteaters led 7-2 after six innings, but the Tigers stormed back with five runs in the ninth to force a third game in the best-of-three series.

The lowlight was the first three quarters of Game Two of the NBA Finals, led by the Celtics 83-61. I gave up and went to bed. The Lakers rallied in the fourth quarter, but still lost 108-102. I think the Lakers will need to sweep the three games in Los Angeles if they want to win the championship.
