Where Are They Now
First off, congrats to Kevin Durant on garnering both Big 12 Freshman of the Year and Player of the Year honors. I must say that I am pleasantly surprised with the latter as I believe that Acie Law IV should also be mentioned.
Now, an update...
We started off this blog with a lot of steam. I remember the passing conversation JD and I had after witnessing the Mavericks' first summer league game against the Nigerian national team at TCU. We had dreams and aspirations that perhaps we would one day be sitting in the press box typing up the latest scores and opinions to you the reader. As time wore on, we laxed our expecations a bit. It wasn't because of the insurmountable pressure to perform or lack of drive to validate our journalism degrees. But, it seemed more logical to give people a place to congregate to scour our useless and homeristic thoughts. (Ok...my homeristic thoughts) As the mindset changed, so did our content. Thanks to your undying devotion, we have upped our circulation to 4 readers...3 of which accidently clicked on the page when searching for porn.
But, as time has dragged on, the gas tank has slowly crept to empty.
After all, this is a Dallas and Longhorn blog first and foremost. But, at this time of the year, there isn't much to chime in. The football seasons have hibernated for the fall and it is too early to speculate. It seems more logical to report when the Mavericks actually lose instead of singing their praises every few days. The Horns basketball team has been inconsistent despite having the Vince Young Part II grace the Erwin Center. (And aggy is actually good making it a double whammy) The Stars will make a quiet exit in the playoffs and the Rangers are just starting to work the rust off. Yes sports fans, these are the dog days of blogging.
So, where does this leave us?
The future is not as bleak as I would have you believe. But, priorities have changed. Both JD and Jarred are attending to women who will deliver them an heir to the throne. Jason is feared to be in a Mexican prison somewhere near Oaxaca. And yours truely? I've come down with a string of sicknesses that have left me begging for mercy.
So keep checking back John Q. Reader. This blog is not dead...just on a short hiatus.
