A Day Off
You ever just get hit with a sudden wave of exhaustion? Like you're cruising along, doing what you normally do everyday, getting ready to type up a nice, long blog entry for your loyal audience to enjoy. And then BOOM, it's 8:15 at night and you want nothing more than to crawl under the covers and sleep for a very long time.
I know I promised a "Mailbag" entry devoted to last week's back-to-back entries on Derek "Mr. Clutch" Jeter, and I really do want to respond to all of the good emails I got on the subject, but man, I am just beat right now.
I had a paper due in one class yesterday and I've got a big project due in another class this afternoon. Not to mention the long hours I put in this week working on the three-part "Meat Market" series on this year's free agents (Part One, Part Two, Part Three). Honestly, I hope you enjoyed reading those, because they took some serious time to write!
But hey, I'm not complaining. I'm just asking for a day off on a random Friday in November. I'm pretty sure it's my first skipped weekday in several months and probably only like the third or fourth one in the last year. Heck, what you've just read about me explaining why I need a day off is more than many bloggers write everyday, so I guess I really just need a day off in the "Gleeman-length" sense of the word.
Have no fear, come Monday morning they'll be a brand-new, Gleeman-length entry for you to read and I bet you'll even get that Mr. Clutch Mailbag before next week is over.
In the meantime, if you missed an entry or two from earlier this week, I'd really like it if you'd go back and read them now. Here are the relevant links:
Monday: The Meat Market (Part One: Outfielders)
Tuesday: The Meat Market (Part Two: Catchers and Infielders)
Wednesday: The Meat Market (Part Three: Pitchers)
Thursday: Wagner to the Phils
Also, if you haven't yet read the aforementioned two-part entry on Derek Jeter from last week, here are those links:
"Derek is really, really cute"
"Derek is really, really cute" (Part Two)
Now, if you'll excuse me, I must sleep. See ya Monday.
