Before diving into my day, I wanted to bring you up to speed on a couple of points of interest:
- As I promised it would be, my appearance on "The Morning Drive" with Brady Ackerman and Mark McLeod has been rescheduled for 9:40 this Thursday morning. If you don’t happen to be within earshot of Gainesville/Ocala radio broadcasts, you can visit the station’s website and click to listen live. The over/under on number of player names/positions/rudimentary facts I get wrong is five.
- If you’re like me and you’re in total football withdrawal during the summer doldrums, check out what Smart Football and Trojan Football Analysis have to say about Mark Richt and the shallow cross play. This is just top-notch stuff.
- Speaking of Smart Football, Chris Brown had one of the best postings in the aftermath of Blogs With Balls, although you’ll want to read what Brian Cook and Year2 had to allow, as well. It sounds like a good time was had by all (well, all except Brian, but I don’t know that Brian ought to be anyone’s barometer for enjoying life), and the photos certainly look interesting. I would have liked to have made it, but, in addition to family responsibilities and work responsibilities, there’s the simple fact that, once a man has made it past his 40th birthday without ever having been to New York City, "never going to New York City" just sort of becomes one of his things.
- I don’t care what Doug Gillett says, "99 Red Balloons" rocks!
I’m not going to swear to you that I’ve given you all the news that’s fit to print, but that should be enough to tide you over for now.
