Ahhh ... Summer time: You mean I'm supposed to relax?

School is over. Spring sports all wrapped up. Time to relax, right?

I wish.

Tis the season of my favorite string of comments and questions from those outside the sports information realm.

First impressions matter

WARNING: I am now stepping up on my soapbox.

I really do not understand people and their actions at times, especially upon their first verbal interaction with someone either face-to-face or on the phone.

Before I go any further, let me just say this: First impressions matter, and a bad first impression can be a difficult thing to overcome.

My thoughts on an umpire's missed call

As most anyone who knows me for very long, I am a huge baseball fan. I love the game.

So imagine my glee when I noticed while online that Detroit Tiger pitcher 
Armando Galarraga had a perfect game going through the seventh inning. Immediately, I turned on the online webcast of the game to listen to the Tiger broadcasts call a potentially historic finish.

As the game moved to the ninth, I flipped my television on ESPN to view the action while calling Jayson, my 9-year-son, so he could watch it with me because he too is a baseball nut.


What unfolded from that point on was nothing like anything I ever expected to see.
