Normal, whatever that is

So, it looks like I’m back to doing recaps full time now. I’m feeling much better, even better than I did before I got sick with pneumonia. Recaps will mostly be of the morning variety and some might be a bit slapdash if I can’t reach my laptop and use the iPad (thanks again) or […]

So it’s my birthday again. For a while there, it wasn’t too clear that I’d make it this far, but so far, so good. Thanks to everybody who’s been there for this past year.

Just in time for the holidays

I’ve got another Kindle collection I’ve put together. I’ve updated a few entries (but left the rankings in place) and added a couple of new ones as bonuses.

I wish I had good news.

And I wish there was an easier way to say it. The surgeons were unable to operate on Tuesday, because scans showed the regrowth of tumors that had been removed in July. From all appearances, the remaining cancer has entered a virulent stage. It is not likely to kill me directly; instead it will decrease […]

SEC Previews

Reporting in game thread: June 20, Blue Jays at Braves

Hi, so I’m out of the hospital and in pretty good shape, all things considered. I indeed had a staph infection like Martin Prado’s, in this case MRSA, or “Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus“. That is, a strain resistent to some of the most common antibiotics. I actually was prescribed the correct drug, but (tender imaginations might […]

Greetings from the disaster area!

Howdy, folks. So, since last we spoke, there was a sort of a tornado thingy that pretty much wrecked a large part of Tuscaloosa. Fortunately, I live across the river in Northport, and we didn’t have anything really bad on this side, just a lot of rain. It did knock the cable out until just […]

We have a winner, of sorts

Our 2011 Braves Journal Whipping Boy will be — to start with — Alex Gonzalez! No, not Alex Gonzalez, Alex Gonzalez! AAG outpolled Nate McLouth 99-92. He will hold the Whipping Boy title until we get totally fed up with George Sherrill. New poll.
