Just a few quick items of information:
I’m back from my time off from the site. I usually try to post at least one item every day. However, I’ve been posting on and off for the last few weeks.
First I took a ten day vacation with the family on a cruise ship. Anyone who has been on these ships knows that Internet access costs an arm and a leg. The vacation was followed almost immediately by a week one business trip for my real job.
Collecting all of the information that goes into posts for the site usually means more or less getting up at 2 AM for me. This is OK when I’m at home in Chicago and can go to bed early. However, when I’m on the road I often don’t have that choice nor do I have the option of gutting it out by walking around like a zombie for 24 hours. So posting during those times is sporadic at best.
Fortunately those trips are over for a while – probably until at least July. Unfortunately these trips appear to have ended just in time for a labor stoppage.
Which brings me to my second point. If you are looking for a lot of posts on this situation, don’t bother. They won’t be here. Except as they affect the every day business of the league in the offseason, I will have no comment. And you certainly won’t see me taking sides since, as a fan, I dislike them both. As Brad Biggs at the Chicago Tribune put it this morning, “If you’re unhappy with the situation, spend your money accordingly.”
Beyond that, please enjoy the posts,
