Your Weekend Planner: Vacation Edition
We need to talk. Actually, no, we need a break. How about one, then the other?
Been at this sports blogging thing going on eight weeks. So far, so swimmingly. I write, you read. I write some more, you correct my mistakes. I write still more, you sometimes feel moved to write back.
Hate to break our momentum with a 20-second timeout, but it’s vacation time at Ye Ol’ Sportatorium. Next week I’ll be floating the river in New Braunfels, attending a concert by this guy and painting my dad’s house. Swear, I couldn’t make up that cumbersome of a trifecta.
(Don't be alarmed to find Robert Wilonsky – ya know, founder and CEO of Unfair Park – rummaging around here in my absence. It's okay, he's got full security clearance.)
Let me leave you with some programming notes, first and foremost a call for one last push of patience on the cover story about you-know-who. For reasons beyond my control, the story is now running in our July 10 issue. So there. Mark your calendars, tell your friends and I don't wanna hear about it until after you read it. Deal?
And, either I really need some time off, or Fox 4’s Baron James is these days referring to Clarice Tinsley as “CT”. Could’ve been “ET”. Probably “CT”. But still … WTF?
Y’all come back now, ya hear?! Richie Whitt
