From time to time, I've posted sports-themed posts on my other blogs, DiscConnected (music reviews and news) or Back In The USSR (political).

I decided to see if I could give ESPN 8 (The Ocho) a run for their money and started this blog.

I lifted the title from John DeBella's Philadelphia morning radio show back in the eighties.

Not so much a strike as a sabatical. 

I plan to take the month of April off from blogging, but decided I'd start this blog's break now as the ideas for subject matter have not been flowing anyway.

Although I seem to get hits on this blog, I've only ever had one follower (and he probably followed more out of obligation than interest), so if you drop by and do normally find this blog amusing, I'd appreciate the feedback.
