Oh By The Way...

Who wants to have some fun?

Write a blog they said. It will be fun they said. People will read it they said.

Well, here goes nothing.

After a few months on the bench, the coach has finally decided to put me back into the game. Now I’m like a three point specialist, a base stealing speedster, or a third down pass rusher! Okay enough of the crappy sports analogies.

As some of you may or may not know, the signals that used to air ESPN Sports Radio were sold and two of them were purchased by Emmis Communications. One station changed its format and the other stayed sports. I know a lot of you were mad and some may still be mad that there isn’t an FM sports signal in the Wabash Valley. But in the grand scheme of things it’s not that bad, there are worse things going on in the world. Oh and don’t worry, there’s one coming soon (probably wasn’t supposed to say that but I guess now is as good a time as any to make my first appearance in the principal’s office). Anyways, the new AM-1130 is going to be pretty sweet once we get everything straightened out. There will be live local sports, hourly sports updates (which you’ve already heard), blogs, podcasts, contest and more. Is there going to be a local show hosted by the best looking radio personality and overall media member in Terre Haute? No. But don’t you worry, we will cope together.

So at this point you’re probably thinking to yourself, what the hell is the point of this blog? Well there smarty pants, this is an introductory blog. I’ve been sidelined for a few months and I couldn’t just go out and start blogging about every sports thought I’ve had since August 31st, my head would explode. When I feel like it, I will blog about sports. And sometimes I will even blog about stuff that has nothing to do with sports (that’s what we in the business call “added value”). As always I love to hear what you folks think about my opinions so feel free to comment, e-mail, or tweet me, all of which is below. If you have a topic or story you want me to blog about let me know. If you enjoy it great, if you don’t that’s great too. Either way, this is a great way to kill 15 minutes of your day at that job you hate.

Oh by the way… If you haven’t heard Justin Timberlake’s new album ‘20/20 Experience’ you need to check it out. The guy took a seven year music hiatus and then came back and struck gold, pretty much how I am going to be with this new website.

(See what I did there? The name of the blog is ‘Oh By The Way’ and at the end I said, “Oh by the way…” Each blog I will finish it by saying, “Oh by the way…” and I will have a final thought there for all you weirdos).

Have a great day!
