Hello! Long time, no see!
(Well, actually, it's been a week. That's not too bad. And I can't actually see you, so if you're sitting in front of the computer in your underwear, don't worry.)
I'm in the Boston Herald again today.
(According to Infoplease, the Boston Herald is the 53rd largest newspaper in the United States. If I can convince enough of you to go to their website today and read me, maybe we can push it up to 52nd! I have, somehow or another, also appeared on the pages of the Los Angeles Times - 4th largest - and the Boston Globe - 15th largest - but I like being in the Herald better. It's more cozy.)
(And just in case you think I'm trying to somehow denigrate the newspaper that pays me more often than any other, that's not the case. Being the 53rd largest newspaper in the United States is actually pretty damn good. There are over 1,300 daily newspapers in the United States. Being 53rd puts them into the top 4%, OK? That's excellent.)
So, anyway, I'm sending you to the Herald today to read me. Later on this week, I'll be sending you to Discover magazine. Then, even later on this week - Christmas, to be exact - I'll be back in the Herald again.
(Could I possibly be more in love with myself? Probably not. Blame it on editors - bless them - pumping up my ego beyond all reasonable bounds. I also have a piece extant on Wicked Local about high school basketball, so if that's what you like to read about, you know where to find it now! If the world were a bit more sane, the only thing anyone would allow me to write would be grocery lists and softball line-ups - and there are whole bunches of my former players who wouldn't even agree with that.)
OK, I guess I've filled enough space.
(And used way too many parentheses, something with which every single one of my editors would likely agree.)
Go to the Boston Herald website and read my latest piece, please.
Soon, with more better stuff.
