I started this blog on Jan. 31, 2010 (the first post!), mostly because I didn’t want to go another year writing only about sliders, spitters and pulled groins. Not that I have an issue with doing those things, because I do love baseball and I do love writing.
And even on the days where I’ve got a 4 a.m. wake-up call, a flight delayed for eight hours in Toronto, or a wireless card that won’t work, I am grateful for the chance to do this every day.
But a wise colleague told me recently that the only way to survive the grind of covering a full season is to set aside small chunks of time every day to do something for yourself.
So, because blogging is cheaper than crack, I’m here.
Naturally, I’ll write some about baseball. But there will be other topics too, which may include laundry, the life of a beat writer and the sometimes crazy but always entertaining rantings of my mother.
Oh, I have a thing for old baseball caps, hence the photo above the blog.
