I know a lot of you look here for market ideas and directions, so here is my view as of Sunday night:
As the above chart indicates, not much has changed. The Stanley Cup Champion Detroit Red Wings remain the class of the NHL and I am expecting the market to make new lows this coming week.
As far as the World Series goes, I cannot name a single player on either team, even though Game 4 is on my TV about 10 feet away. But it gets worse, if I didn't have the TV tuned to the channel, I wouldn't know which two teams were playing. From the annoying sound of the crowd, it clear that a team from the obnoxious Northeast corridor is playing (and probably winning).
Speaking of which, the Michigan Wolverines lost to Michigan State yesterday, like for the first time ever (or so it seems). Gives East Lansing something to keep it warm this winter above it's God-forsaken frozen tundra of a college town.
Don't forget to turn your clocks back this weekend, or is it next weekend? Arizona doesn't participate in daylight savings time, yet I still don't get the clock thing right. I didn't know you could opt out of it, anyway. How do you do that, do you write a letter to the President saying your state is not going along with it? Didn't the South try that once?
Oh yea, Californication is on tonight. The highlight of my week.
That should do it, except for this: I saw Joni Mitchell perform in a little coffee house in Ann Arbor in 1968. After her second set, I went back stage to meet her. Fragile, beautiful, young and so appreciative of this college boy telling her how wonderful she was. That was the Joni Mitchell in the video, unequivocal talent and grace.
Who knows where the time goes?
