How you doing out there?
Yes, it's time to dive back into the blogosphere.
I've had a few good ideas here and there (really) but just never got around to, you know, actually DOING anything about it. This is also why I've never kept a journal.
My main topic of conversation and interest tends to be sports. Unfortunately, this time of year is not real big on topics worthy of discussion.
For example: the World Cup. Despite ESPN's best efforts to brainwash us, it's still soccer. I know the U.S. isn't going to win. And adding really annoying horns REALLY doesn't help.
Golf and tennis? Eh.
Baseball? Look, I am a Dodgers fan. But the season plods along. I have the same issue with the NBA and NHL. I know it's there but I don't devote that much brain matter to it until August/September.
As for THE DECISION? Four words. Lebron is an idiot. Whoever convinced him (or allowed him, if it was his idea) to do that show should be beaten soundly about the head and shoulders. Look, you want more money. Fine. You want to play in Miami. Fine. But at least give SOME consolation to the Cavs. "I've enjoyed my time here, and as the place I began my career, I will always consider the city special," It's called damage control. Finally, I love the fact that the Cavs owner, Michael Jordan, and Magic Johnson have all slammed THE DECISION!
The good news? We are just over a week from the start of training camp. The Steelers will soon be returning to my alma mater, St. Vincent College.
We have plenty of football fans here in the office. The kicker? ONE Bills fan. The rest go Browns (three), Patriots, Steelers, Titans and Colts.(As for me, I consider myself a Raiders fan abstaining until Al Davis joins George Steinbrenner.)
And of course, along with the NFL, we also will have the return of college football, including THE Ohio State University. Last year was my kind of season. Beat Mic----n, win the Big Ten, go to and WIN the Rose Bowl.
Of course, the Big Ten now has 12 teams, the Big 12 has 10, and the Pac 10 has 12. I was surprised at Nebraska's move, but it beats Notre Dame or Rutgers. As for divisions, as long as they figure out a way for OSU and that school up north to play every year, I'm fine.
All right, I'll be back (sometime) SPEAKING FRANKLY!
