A Previewâ€™s Preview
Itâ€™s been months since Iâ€™ve had a chance to write for the blog, and Iâ€™m happy to announce that weâ€™re putting the band back together for a limited release Sold Out Tour. Sold Out probably isnâ€™t the right analogyâ€¦letâ€™s say By Invitation Only. So congratulations, valued reader, if you can see this, youâ€™re seat is being held.
After my transition to the purchasing team, Iâ€™ve been spending most of my hours at the office practicing my multiplication tables again. Iâ€™m now openly searching for a math-only assistant so if anyone knows an out-of-work 4th grader looking to get a foot in the door, give me a ring.
Over the next few weeks leading up to the baseball season, weâ€™ll be executing our three man weave to bring you previews for all 30 teams.
Who are you again?
Well, I understand the NFL is still Homecoming King of this high school, but before we know it football will pass and the nerdy A/V kid (baseball) will get his moment in the spotlightâ€¦for seven glorious months.
Personally, as of this morning, my Jets are still alive in the NFL playoff picture. Although, like the most popular man from LaGuardia to Newark, I too thought Gang Green had been eliminated mere weeks ago with their 7th loss of the season. Silly Rex.
Brent has his Vikings going full Favre ahead right now too, so for the time being, weâ€™re both primarily concerned with football, much like the rest of you out there.
Ariel on the other handâ€¦Well…Ariel didnâ€™t have himself a very good weekend.
As with any division of people and goods, we held a draft last week to determine who would cover each team. With the first pick in the 2010 Baseball Preview Blog Draft, Brent selected his hometown Twins. I chose the back to back NL Pennant winning Philadelphia Phillies and Ariel was able grab his Cubbies with the 3rd (read: Last) pick.
While his Cowboys and Cubs aren’t looking so good, Ariel’s future in showbiz is as bright as ever. Check him out HERE.
Hopefully this will take some of the sting away from a long cold February that doesnâ€™t offer much in the way of sports entertainment. Enjoy the previews as we push right through to Spring Training.
