My right thumb is a little sore today.

It's nothing debilitating. I can still type (some may think that's a bad thing). The stiffness will go away soon.

But, it was worth it.

Last night was one of the better early-summer sports channel-surfing nights in memory. I watched the Brewers-Cardinals on ESPN, the Celtics-Lakers on ABC and the Blackhawks-Flyers on NBC -- all in glorious hi-def and, to the chagrin of others in my house, all at the same time.

My wife put up a Facebook post wondering how I "can watch baseball, basketball and hockey at the same time. I can't tell if the Brewers are beating the Blackhawks or if the Celtics just scored a goal in the 5-hole."

It was a bit confusing. And, it seemed like every time I shifted away from the hockey game, I missed another Chicago goal. But, all the games had interesting story lines.

Boston's Ray Allen, whom many in Milwaukee still miss from his days with the Bucks, went one a three-point binge during the first half of the NBA games. The Blackhawks showed spirit and heart in putting the Flyers against the wall (not an unfamiliar position this spring). And, the Brewers avoided a sweep with an extra-inning victory closed down by John Axford.

It was a glorious evening at the sports buffet. Now, I'm ready for the World Cup to start. I'm thinking of inviting Dave Begel.
