>A few housekeeping blog notes:
– I’ve gotten away from doing link dumps the past few weeks, mostly because I’ve been having trouble finding solid stuff to link. I revamped my Google reader and I’m going to be starting links up again, only this time with hopefully more interesting material. It will still be just weekly for now, but I may start doing link dumps more than once a week, provided it’s working the way I’d like.
– I’ll be taking a trip out to Ohio for a few days this week to visit my sister . . . though you may notice that the Mets happen to be playing the Indians in Cleveland this week. This may or may not be coincidental timing. I’ll (hopefully) be checking out the Mets-Indians game on Wednesday, as well as the AAA Columbus Clippers on Tuesday. I’ll still be posting while I’m away, so keep checking in.
– Mailbag, mailbag, mailbag, mailbag. There will be another mailbag post sometime this week, but keep sending emails. I have fun doing it, and maybe you have fun reading it, so send your questions along via email, via Twitter, or Facebook. You, of course, make it all possible . . . plus I like getting random emails. It makes me feel happy inside.

USA! USA! USA! USA! USA! I am officially all for jingoism in soccer form, but I am not so much in favor of the apocalyptic droning of the vuvuzelas. They sounds like the Joker’s theme from “The Dark Knight.” Or just insanity. They sound like insanity. USA! USA! USA!
