A Parting Gift For the Weekend (Updated)

Update: so it seems that “The Loose Cannons” on Fox Sports Radio found my McCourt post and spent nearly ten minutes going down the list. I’ve embedded the audio below. I can now cross “Pat O’Brien calling me a goof” off my bucket list.

First and foremost: thanks to everyone for the positive response to yesterday’s McCourt sin list. It’s already become the most-read post in the blog’s history, and coming as it did on the final day of the month, helped to push June 2011 into the lead as the highest traffic month we’ve seen here. I’ve added a link to it in the sidebar, and I’ll continue to update it as needed; there have been some revisions already.

Second: I’m off on a holiday odyssey through three midwestern states through Tuesday, so you’ll have to make do without me until then. Unless, of course, something major happens while I’m away – which it nearly always does -  thus forcing me to try and do a quick-and-dirty post from my phone. I’ll probably still find some time to sneak away from the girlfriend’s family to dick around on Twitter, of course.

Finally: Jon Weisman of Dodger Thoughts and I gave video chatting a try last night, and you can see the results below, complete with my headphone cord dangling around my ear like the chains holding your grandmother’s glasses to her head. For the first time either of us had done this, I think the results were pretty good – and great fun.

Enjoy the long weekend, folks.
