Yeah, I'm sick of looking at Sammy too!

Thought I better post something just to get Hagar's mug off the front here. 

This blog is not dead, but I really haven't had anything new and compelling to write about lately, thus the inactivity.  I've been working on several personal projects that eat up most of my time these days, and the blog has been an unfortunate casualty of that. 

One of the projects I've been feverishly working on is my Kansas City Comets database, which I've had for years, but have been fleshing out and expanding this summer.  It's basically a summary of every game (over 500 of 'em) they ever played from 1981-91, and I've been spending a lot of time at UMKC library going through each box score from the old K.C. Star microfilms and getting all the pertinent info that I need.  My hope is to eventually turn this all into a website/tribute page to my favorite sports entity of all-time.  It's been tedious work, but I've enjoyed it thoroughly.

I'm hopeful there will be more good stuff to post this Fall, especially since I'll be vacationing a couple times in September and October, so I should be a little more active in the coming months here...
