Sports on Memorial Day weekend - 05/24/14
It feels strange not to have Vandy playing deep into the SEC Tournament on Memorial Day weekend. The Commodores have made a habit of getting to or near the SEC Championship Game in recent seasons, so to have them already knocked out feels a little odd.
Today, three different major league pitchers from Middle Tennessee are on the mound. RA Dickey picked up the win against the A's earlier today, David Price is facing the Red Sox right now, and Mike Minor is currently facing Colorado.
Tomorrow, we can look forward to Josef Newgarden running in the Indianapolis 500. The Hendersonville native is starting the race in the Top 10. How cool would it be to see a local driver win the open wheel sport's biggest race of the year?
