Monday, 6 a.m.

There were athletes who succeeded in the quiet.

There were athletes who triumphed in the noise.

There were athletes who were good on the ice, and great on the greens, or terrific in the infield. There was even one who did well on the dotted line.

But, in all of Tampa Bay, considering all the pucks and putts and poles and pickoffs, who was the best. In a fun, frenzied time in Tampa Bay, who won the weekend?

All winners in my book, Gary, but if I had to pick a team it would be the Lightning, and if I had to pick a person it would be Charl. Do love Erasmo and Ben and Victor, though, and admiration for Juan although I don’t follow his sport.
