Ten years ago: The Dallas Mavericks won their first NBA title by winning Game 6 of the finals against the Miami Heat, 105-95. “The Book of Mormon” took home nine Tony Awards, including the prize for best musical; “War Horse” won five Tonys, including the best play award.

Five years ago: A gunman opened fire at the Pulse nightclub, a gay establishment in Orlando, Florida, leaving 49 people dead and 53 wounded; Omar Mateen pledged allegiance to the Islamic State group during a three-hour standoff before being killed in a shootout with police.

One year ago: Rayshard Brooks, a 27-year-old Black man, was shot and killed by one of the two white officers who responded after he was found asleep in his car in the drive-thru lane of a Wendy’s restaurant in Atlanta; police body camera video showed Brooks struggling with the officers and grabbing a Taser from one of them, firing it as he fled. (An autopsy found that Brooks had been shot twice in the back. Officer Garrett Rolfe faces charges including murder.) A federal judge ordered Seattle police to temporarily stop using tear gas, pepper spray and flash-bang devices to break up peaceful protests. The Oregon Supreme Court upheld Gov. Kate Brown’s shutdown orders aimed at stemming the coronavirus pandemic. William Sessions, a former federal judge appointed by President Ronald Reagan to head the FBI and fired years later by President Bill Clinton, died at his Texas home at the age of 90.

How was wedding, baseball and reception?
Hiya, Dave. I'll do this over a few posts, just because.

It was a great day overall. The wedding itself was nice. Not too many showed up at the church because it was at 2:pm on a Friday.

Didn't get to the game until late but happy to report my godson pitched a complete game win 6-2. They are state champions in their division. Apparently, there is a regional interstate championship game on Monday, also at home. This season seems never ending but it's also a fun ride.

The reception was nice and the food was good.

Music was a bit too loud for my tastes. In fact, couldn't get to sleep easily last night because my ears were ringing. Turns out my sons' gym teacher was the DJ. That was a real coincidence because these are two completely different worlds. I've known the bride her whole life. Our parents were lifelong friends from Italy and then from the town I grew up in Jersey.

Not a dry eye in the house during the speeches. The groom's dad past away last week after a long struggle with cancer. He had recorded a video which they showed after the cocktail hour. After that it was all smiles, laughter, and dancing. They did a great job addressing the elephant in the room but still threw a beautiful party in the spirit that the groom's dad would have insisted on.

In other golf picture news, this was my view early this morning from near the first tee.
