LBS on Vacation

That’s right folks, for the first time since the launch of the site back in January, and really, the first time since Winter Break ’02, LB will be taking a little vacation. I am off on a mission to broaden the horizons of LBS and reach out to an international audience. Regularly scheduled posting should resume in a few weeks, but don’t be surprised if you see me drop in a few stories here and there. In the meantime, be sure to check out commenter Alan’s brand new blog — it’s full of tons of great baseball analysis. Additionally, if you’d like some more blog reading to keep you busy, check out a few of the recommended sites on the sidebar. As always, thanks for stopping by and see you in a few …

Getting to Know You

Not often that I do something like this, that’s why I’ve included a picture of Jessica Biel to ease your pain. So, if you have a few minutes, I would be much obliged if you could fill out this survey. Probably won’t take more than a couple minutes.

And you know what? I’m such a nice guy, I’m willing to compensate you for your efforts. I have a couple of sweet DVDs to send your way. The first five people to complete the survey and send me an email saying you’ve done so will receive a copy of Baseball’s Most Unbreakable Feats on DVD. It’s pretty tight, and it’s hosted by Roger Clemens. Make sure you include your address in the email as well so I know where to send it. Thanks.

Interview on 1530 Homer in Cincy

For anyone around the Cincinnati range, or within like 1,000 miles of the city (1530am has a killer signal), I’ll be a guest this morning with Tim Lewis. You can tune in around 6:30am ET, or you can travel over to their sick website and listen online. Check out Tim’s Big Dog blog while you’re at it.

UCLA Rocks, Reaches 100th National Title in School History

That’s right, since I’m a proud UCLA alum, I must boast to the world when my school achieves something quite notable — you know, just like a proud parent showing off pictures of their ugly ass kid that nobody cares to see. On Sunday, the UCLA women’s water polo team defeated Stanford 5-4 to capture their third consecutive national title, ninth overall, and 100th by the university. Stanford is the next closest school with 93 titles. And so all my Trojan friends don’t get bent out of shape, USC is third with 84. Hmm, must be a California thing. And I couldn’t be more proud as this proves once again, that UCLA is the finest all-around school in the country. Yeaah boy.

And I will not subject you to any further women’s water polo coverage — that is, unless my new girl Keeley Hazell takes up the sport.
