It’s March, and while there will be Madness later this month, for local sports shock talkers, it’s a slow time right now. They can only insult Hanley Ramirez in so many ways, they can only insinuate that Danny Ainge and Brad Stevens have blown the season and deserve more heat than the Bruins a limited number of times, and while there is still the glee over the Patriots playoff loss, most people have moved on.
This space has been quiet, yes. I’m still adjusting to a new job and with family responsibilities, the site has taken a backseat. At this point, I’m really only writing opinion pieces when something comes up which I think needs to be addressed. It may remain that way for a while. I don’t see it ever going back to the daily links format. The advent of Twitter has really made that sort of thing moot, in my opinion. If you follow the right people, you’re going to see the content you want to see.
Yesterday’s Tom Brady/NFL hearing would usually be right up that alley. However, once I saw Judge Chin had said “The evidence of the ball tampering here is compelling if not overwhelming.” I knew which way this thing was going. It’s discouraging that a Federal Judge has the same view on this as an uneducated sports radio host in Denver would have. In addition the NFL lawyers told a bold-faced lie in front of the Judges yesterday, and it was not picked up or questioned.
Might want to hold off on those trade plans for Jimmy G. right now.
One further note, the site will be down over the weekend for a period of time while I migrate to a new host. There will be a few small changes, but most things should look pretty much the same. If you’ve left comments on posts this week here, they may not make it over to the new site. That should be about the only thing that you might have to complain about. 🙂
Thanks for sticking in there with me.
