Enjoy the holidays
Greetings and Happy Holidays from all of us at the Mark My Word blog world headquarters…
I won’t be doing much updating for the next few days, but I’m not going anywhere. If there is some breaking or developing news, I will be here to cover it and of course on MLB.com.
In the meantime, here are some links that can keep you occupied when you’ve had enough of watching the Caillou’s holiday movie or a Wiggles Christmas with your kids, Real Housewives Marathon with your wife/girlfriend and Productnamegoeshere Bowl college football with your husband/boyfriend.
Here is my Holiday Q&A with Reds pitcher Sam LeCure
MLB.com columnist Anthony Castrovince compiled a holiday wish list for all 30 clubs. Anthony also put together his memories of the late Ryan Freel in this column. A former colleague of mine on the Reds beat, Marc Lancaster of the old Cincinnati Post wrote a really, really nice piece on Freel.
Over at the new Web site, and our MLB.com corporate cousins, Sports on Earth, ex-Deadspin founder Will Leitch has become a favorite read. I’ve never met Will, but have greatly enjoyed his work from afar in various outlets for a while. Here’s his latest column on who in the media had a good 2012.
If you’re a despondent NHL hockey fan who has slogged through this lockout this winter, maybe this will perk you up. It’s the unofficial hockey uniform database. You can get nostalgic for those old ugly Vancouver Canucks sweaters, or perhaps wonder, there was really once a team in Kansas City?
Come back NHL hockey, come back.
Take care and all the best to you and yours. Have a safe holiday week.
