What a scenic shot of Honolulu, Hawaii. Normally I’d say something jealous, but I’m in Louisville four days before the Derby and there’s not a cloud in the sky. Is there a better place in the world to be? I think not.

- 10:30 — Pelicans at Warriors on TNT (GS leads 1-0)
Hopefully the New Orleans Pelicans are as pesky as the pair that crashed Pepperdine’s commencement.
