A special thanks goes to the disgruntled rowers who have been keeping things fresh around here the last few weeks. Without you the blog might have keeled over and died like I have wanted to do on many occasions after having one too many shots of whiskey followed by several more shots of whiskey chased with cheap beer.
The reasons for the slow down are pretty clear. The terrible finish of the football season and the long drought during basketball have taken their toll. We just aren’t as excited about the baseball team’s prospects as last year. On the upside, I’m hoping that the team is simply trying to avoid peaking too soon in the season. The reality of the situation should become evident within the next month as the team will either have to peak or end the season.
Additionally, it seems that life may be getting the best of us. In the next two months I’ll be finishing up grad school and moving. Walker is getting married, moving, and trying to grow his own business. Calhoun and Bowman are also contemplating taking new jobs in new locations.
In other news, TigerNet is either having technical difficulties right now, or I finally managed to get kicked off the site. Right now the site can’t find my username and I did openly wish death upon a person this morning. I saw it less as a personal attack and more as a rhetorical device meant to inspire deeper contemplation into his own wishing of a person’s drowning in the floodwaters of a hurricane. Or as Michael Bolton might say, “why should I change? He’s the one that suck.”
Hopefully the approach of football season will bring us out of hiding. Otherwise, maybe we can get Springer to have a show about the rowing team?
