Thank heavens the worst day of the week is over. It is all smooth sailing from here on out. The first AC I felt all day was when I got home at 6p. Sweltering office. Got turquoise paint all over me. I hate Mondays. This picture kinda sums up my day. Enough of that. Speaking of sailing, wouldn't the Caribean be nice right now? Frozen drinks and senoritas.
Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway has agreed in principle to purchase clothing manufacturer Russell Corp. for about $600 million. The offer is $18 a share, a 35% premium over the Russell closing price of $13.30. Cheers to an Alabama company for their success. Congratulations to the family as well. Outfitted Auburn, Alabama, and MLB for years. Russell Land, Russell Marine, and owning Lake Martin. We all know people who work for Russell. I wonder if Russell Land was included and if Rooney's new boss is Warren? Not bad. Berkshire Hathaway A class shares closed at $83,600 and B class shares closed at $2,868 Monday.
Two Duke indictments. 1oo% sure of two people and 90% sure of the 3rd. It will be a spectacle. Somewhere Johnny Cochran is smiling.
POW....The Cowgirls of FSU....close enough......and a reminder of a great season to come. What are the odds of an SEC National Champ? 6:1? ACC...8:1? Who knows?
Braves lose a close one Pedro and the Mets. Two more games with Davies vs. Zambrano and Hudson vs. Glavine facing off. Do the Braves have enough to keep up with the Mets this year? Will the Mets crash and burn? Any thoughts?
The legend and legacy of BTB only grows.
By the way, wonder how 'ol Tucker is doing through the craziness? Beau seems to be living in the lap of luxory.
Ladies and gentlemen, have a good Tuesday.
