A Tale of Two Booners
It was an interesting sports weekend for people with last names similar to mine.
In baseball, three-time All-Star second baseman Bret Boone bid goodbye to the Seattle Mariners on Sunday after being designated for assignment. His days with the club are over.
Meanwhile, Tom Boonen won Monday's third stage at the Tour de France. The Belgian rider clinched the 212.5-kilometre trek from La Chataigneraie to Tours in a thrilling sprint to the line, clocking four hours 36 minutes nine seconds.
From the highest peak to the lowest valley, you're only a letter away. From Boonen to Boone to Boon, it's a slippery slope.
