Week of 8-1 OT Thread

Holy cow people. It's already August! And you know what that means. If you don't, it means it's going to be really hot this month, with temperatures forecasted to reach 109 degrees on Thursday, and I saw this on Channel 11 as I was typing this up, and even I'm in disbelief. I can't remember it being this hot in Texas for so many consecutive days.

In other news, because it's August, that means this month we'll see NFL Preseason (woohoo...), and...we're one month away from hockey! Hooray!

On this day (August 1) in history:

1836 - HMS Beagle/Charles Darwin returns to Bahia Brazil

1928 - Babe Ruth hits HR # 42 & is 4 weeks ahead of his 1927 pace

1977 - SF Giant Willie McCovey hits NL record 18th grand slam

In the meantime, some discussion topics:

Will we get any rain before August 10? (That's when I leave for school)

I feel that's the only discussion topic, because this week is going to be nuts in terms of how hot it will be.
