Unofficial, Unannounced WWOD Summer Vacation is Over




Today is the day that the action begins. First of all, I'm back. For reals. From my unnanounced, unplanned and unasked for vacation from the Internets. Secondly, the moratorium on dealing with restricted and unrestricted free agents in the NBA was lifted as of 12:01 a.m. this morning. Meaning, that the future for David Lee and Nate Robinson is now. Thirdly, the rain finally stopped in New York City and its environs.

I know that at least one person out there noticed the dearth of new material here and I do apologize. First, I was busy with work. Then, I was busy with blueberry pie. It was a whirlwind few weeks, but I ate the last of the pie for dinner last night and am just putting the finishing touches on the last of the projects that was consuming my work days.

While I settle in over here and unpack my luggage, why don't you check out Joe Posnanski's fine story for SI.com about Andy Roddick's epic loss to Roger Federer in the Wimbeldon Final on Sunday. Or go read the Vanity Fair article about a certain recently retired Alaskan politican. Or, go peruse Jason Whitlock's well-intentioned but awkwardly delivered counterbalance to all the McNair-as-hero stories that have been written in the wake of his murder.

Then stop back later for some older stuff that I've been working (those teams=tragedies pieces) and a fresh start.
