A combination of travel plans, a family event and a visit from old friends – from back in grad school days – assures that there will be no more rants this month.
My best guess is that I will be back on the air sometime between 1 June and 3 June.
Please come back then.
Stay well, all.
Over the weekend, I encountered e-mail gremlins. Some readers here have requested an e-mail notification when I post a new rant; that mailing list was one of the files corrupted by the gremlins. I have reconstituted it from memory – but my short term memory is not what it used to be.
Therefore, anyone who fell off the mail list who wants to be back on – – or anyone who wants to be added to the list anew – – just send me an e-mail at:
Sorry about that…
My writing schedule for next week will be sporadic. Family events will consume much of the time during the week.
My plan is to write on Monday morning and then see what happens after that. Sometimes plans work out; other times … not so much.
I should be back on normal schedule by the week of February 15.
Stay well, everyone.
I was out of the country over New Year’s and overlooked my annual reading of Gene Collier’s awarding of the “Trite Trophy” on the final Sunday of the calendar year – until today that is. Here is a link to his column in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
It is definitely worth your time…
Scott Ostler has this column in today’s SF Chronicle. It is an open letter to Mark Davis regarding what happened to him and the Raiders at the recent NFL owners’ meeting and things that Mark Davis might do now to make amends with Raider fans who reside in Oakland.
I think this column should be read in its entirety; it is vintage Scott Ostler. Here is the link…
I will be off-the-air until January 6 or 7 in 2016. Please check in around then for more sports commentaries.
Happy New Year to everyone. I hope 2016 is a healthy and prosperous year for all.
There will be no rant tomorrow on Christmas Day. I will return to the air on Monday 28 December with the final rant of the year – the annual “Bad Ads” rant reviewing some of the bad TV commercials of the previous year.
Merry Christmas to those who celebrate Christmas. Happy Holidays to those who celebrate some other holiday at this time of the year.
For everyone, stay well…
My intention is to have both flavors of Mythical Picks on the street on Wednesday this week so as not to do any writing on Thanksgiving Day. Then again the road to perdition is paved with good intentions…
Nevertheless, the priority this week will be to get the Mythical Picks out early and put off until Friday any decision about posting something then.
In any event, Happy Thanksgiving, all…
I am off to Las Vegas for the weekend. The NFL and NCAA Mythical Picks are posted earlier in the week than usual. Scroll down to see them.
I’ll be back on the air next Tuesday.
Stay well, all…
I will be “off-the-air” for a while. If things go according to plan, I shall return to writing sometime during the week of 9 August.
Until then, stay well everyone…
