Happy July 4th. The rain is starting (how surprising..) just in time to ruin any kind of fireworks display in South Florida. Every year, on this date, I think about all of the things I am thankful for: my family, my health, and my friends, to name a few. I am additionally thankful for all of the support that I have received over the 2+ years that this blog has been in existence and the 1+ year that Dynasty has been in operation. The icing on the cake this week was the signing of Robert Lara. I cannot begin to explain how excited I am about the opportunity to represent not only a player that went to my high school, but a top notch catcher in a solid organization (San Diego Padres). Remember all those interview appearances on Adam Taxin’s Philadelphia radio show? Well I am once again a regular on a sports radio channel…this time it’s based in the Chicago region. All of the latest shows will be linked on the right sidebar. Check out some links I passed up over this busy week:
