Hello, everybody.

Like you, I am anxiously awaiting the ratification of a new CBA and the celebration to follow.

In the interim, I have stepped away from the computer on a vacation. While traveling the globe, I will be crunching numbers and scrawling down some notes. But, I will have only sporadic Internet access while charging up my voice for the glorious return of NCAA Football and the pageantry of the NFL.

So, enjoy the relative peace and quiet. I will be back on July 31, ready to take a flamethrower to the airwaves and these here pages.
