I have returned from Florida just in time to congratulate Yahya al-Miskin on Ghana’s win over the US team in the FIFA World Cup…Ghana proved they can play with anybody & will advance to the next round in their first World Cup appearance….yes, there was a bad call that lead to a goal for Ghana, but the US didn’t play as they could have in the game & I’m not sure they could have pulled it off regardless.
In a related thought…while I was in Florida and Tropical Storm Alberto was bearing down on us (and threatening to become a Category 1 Hurricane), I was impressed by the dedication of the football fans…one student from Brazil (along with a couple other sports fans in the bunch) left the park in the middle of the storm to find a TV to watch a Brazil game….
At any rate, I had a GREAT time excavating in Florida with the University of Florida Field School at Kingsley Plantation National Park. Its a great project, a great site and James Davidson has some good students and some truly great graduate assistants…looks like he’s a lucky boy…as usual.
I’ll post more on the site and some pictures on Friday…but, in the meantime you can check out the Kingsley Plantation pictures I’ve posted on my Flickr Steam:
