I'll be watching the 2nd half for sure, hopefully most of the 1st half.

Newspapers are more and more owned by a larger ownership group, so you get less individuality and less editorial freedom. You have a new wave of journalists who think people care more about their personal lives and snarkiness than issues and facts, so that helps not. I mean, the NY Times is still the NY Times, but, newspapers are creeping up on being obsolete, which saddens me. I obviously use the internet a lot but I like my news from the paper, still.


Gottcha. I couldn't tell if you were being "snarky" with your original comment. I enjoy my evening newspaper. One of life's simple pleasures ...

Speaking of news papers in general and the Chicago Sun Times in particular, this has to be one of the weirdest headlines I've read in a while.

Sweet!
I wish I could've gone to the SJU game. VT beat both them and Hofstra. I need to get into basketball. I don't know what I'm gonna do with myself when there are no college football games to watch til August.

At my old job in LA, the guy that ran our news division came from the world of newspapers. I used to pick his brain all the time, about what it was like to work at a paper (he had worked at the Tribune here in Chicago, as well as the LA Times), how it had changed over the last 25 years, etc. Fascinating stuff, at least to me.

You're gonna get yo drink on and then yo dance on.

College Hoops are great, but, I don't really get into them as a fan until the Madness begins, and then I'm hooked. That leads right into baseball, which you know I love. So, for me, February is the tough month, with the NFL over and the Madness not yet started.

Cool. I wanted to be a beat reporter when I was a younger man until I realized I didn't really have a firm grasp on the English language.

I have a buddy that designed the largest news paper facility in west michigan and he's going to give me a tour next week. It should be interesting.

unico, who are your two favorite players?


I like it when Vtech plays cause the phrase "beamer ball" always makes me laugh.

Well, it does now that Sicy got a hold of the design.

Dalton, that tour should be fascinating, enjoy.

She still skates though. Now if she could do all three, that'd be bad ass! But your description is much more accurate. These American Doll people got it all wrong.

Hell yeahs they do! I play a drinking game in which I have to take a drink every time an announcer says "beamer ball" ... sometimes I get a loose on the rules though and drink when they say 'ball'.
