Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Hey, if Dale Hansen thinks it's a good time to skeedaddle, who am I to quarrel?

Let's see, last summer I went to a river and a waterfall. This year ... Seattle. Yeah, that sounds about right.

Temperatures in the 70s. Fish to eat. Coffee to smell (but not drink). A mountain to climb hike. Blogs to ignore.

Should be a relatively slow sportsy week ...

The Rangers will be in the midst of their defining 13-game stretch, but the Mavs are still weeks from the NBA draft, the Cowboys are breaking from OTAs, the Stars have already made their big off-season acquisition and even tennis is between the clay of Paris and the grass of London.

At some point I'll send a postcard, but right now I'll leave you with a homework assignment: Keep an eye on this weekend's Indy race at Texas Motor Speedway and next weekend's Ticket Summer Bash.

Full reports due when I return June 15.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
