Either way, I am still writing, so I’ll just show you where, and you can go there if you wish. Marco has graciously invited me to be heavily involved in his new college basketball blog called Storming the Floor. College Hoops is my favorite sport in the whole wide world, so I accepted.

#29 St. Joseph’s

#30 Clemson

But I’m looking forward to seeing which players topped out in other categories.

I’ve turned in some work for both Awful Announcing (a recap of the TBS baseball experience) and Storming the Floor (team and conference previews are starting! Today, the Big 12 and Clemson!), so if you can’t go a day without reading me (which I suspect you can, sadly), check those two places.
