A few tidbits …

… tonight’s Angels-Yankees game gave me heart palpitations several times. The game-winning double occurred just moments before I sat down to dinner.

… as soon as I read “Wife Swap” in a story about Balloon Boy the day the “story” clouded cable news, I figured it was a plug to get these crazy parents on television again. Looks like my first impression was right.

… I’m flying to Colorado in a few hours for a job interview.

…’s preseason rankings came out today. I tell you one thing about Division III, it’s one of the best tournaments to cover. I had one of the best wrestling experiences in my life last year when I covered the event in Cedar Rapids.

… I think way too many juniors making verbal commitments is detrimental to wrestling news. I guess I was part of the problem a few years ago when then-Christiansburg High School (Va.) junior Cody Gardner announced his commitment to Virginia Tech. Yes, I wrote a story about it.

… I’m covering/broadcasting the Sunkist Kids International Open this weekend in Phoenix. So this week, I get to cross off two states I’ve never previously been — Colorado and Arizona. I’ve been to the Denver airport, but that doesn’t count. Neither does Salt Lake City in Utah, which I cannot count. And sadly, I can’t count The Netherlands, either. I was only in Amsterdam’s airport for a total of three hours.

… Wayland Baptist added wrestling last week. I tweeted about it, posted it a few places on the message boards, but I’ll say this again, great move for wrestling. This goes without saying, there needs to be a Division I program in Texas.

… “The Ed Show” on MSNBC sucks. Makes me hate politics even more.

… I need to stop playing Mafia Wars on Facebook.

  1. Jason,

    Be sure you come back to DIIIs this year. They’ll be bigger and better than ever.
