1. Watering, looking at plants, marveling at how they've grown, thinking most of them look pretty healthy: a day in the yard. Pictures to come. Really.
2. Excellent breaded shrimp and chips at Newman's on Coburg Road. Russell and I enjoyed the temperate weather and had another far-ranging conversation.
3. Just in time for the NBA Playoffs, I dug deeper into espn.com's TrueHoop network and discovered nbaplaybook.com, a blog kept by Sebastian Pruiti, that breaks down specific elements of specific NBA games, with excellent analysis and videotape. I particularly enjoyed this post, a close look at LaBron James' shooting woes against the Celtics. I also learned quite a bit, here, from Sebastian's analysis of what it cost the Cavaliers when, in Game 6, they defended Kevin Garnett with Shaq.
