Points of Interest is the daily link dump for your morning or afternoon commute in and out of Souvenir City. We’ll be throwing together some other stops from out there in blogdome and the interwebs to peak your interest. Some of them will actually be what some might consider educational. Most of them, are going to everything but that.
NBA Finals Game 2. The Stanley Cup could be carried around the ice in Pittsburgh tonight (we hope not). The MLB Draft is at 6 p.m. There’s a lot going on today.
