Happy 2006, everybody. I’ve been somewhat quiet lately, due to Christmas, New Year’s, a memorial service, and all the attending family obligations. I’ve poked my head in, only to comment about two supremely important interrelated topics, Little People and string theory. The less important stuff, like the Hall of Fame, I’ve simply had to take a pass on.
Adding to that is that I’ve started working this week in a new office that has no Internet connection. The feeling of disconnectedness is quite odd, but on the other hand, my (non-blogging) productivity is much, much higher. I suppose that will decline a bit when the DSL line gets installed on Friday (knock on wood).
Fortunately, while I was busy, not much has happened. On the stadium front, the A’s are now officially disappointed in the progress on Lew Wolff’s Oakland ballpark proposal. Which makes the soccer idea even more sensical. On the trade front, David Wells and Barry Zito still have not been traded, although the focus of the rumor mill has shifted away from the Mets and over to the Cubs. The Cubs rumors are rather vague, so I don’t put much stock in them.
In other words, not much to see here, so move along, back to the office. If there’s some breaking news in the next few days…well, you probably won’t hear it here first.
