Time to reevaluate

Hey, remember me?? Probably not, since I haven't been stopping by here very much. Given the new online tools that are Facebook and Twitter, I've pretty much ignored this blog. And the fact it's Summertime motivates me to do things outside as opposed to sitting in front of a computer screen.

So does that mean it's time to hang it up?? I'm not to that stage yet. But I have been thinking seriously about what direction I want to take this blog. Politically, I'm worn out by the empty suit who currently occupies the White House.

And since the Twins have been anywhere from mediocre to unspectacular, I've lost interest in writing anything about them, as well as major league baseball in general.

For a while, taking gratuitous shots at my Dad seemed to be my favorite pastime. But in looking back at some of things I wrote on that subject, I'm rather embarrassed by how petty I became. Not to mention the fact I wasn't being the best ambassador for God's kingdom.

To quote Sopranos dim-witted character Little Carmine Lupertazzi, I'm at "the precipice of a major crossroads".

We'll see what the future may hold.

I think you and I are at about the same point right now, Brad.

I enjoy reading both your blogs, Mr. D and Brad. I've got you both on my rss reader so even if you post infrequently, I'll get it right away. Sometimes facebook satisfies the blogging urge, sometimes it just can't. Kind of like when you have a party at your house vs. just going to the local hangout to see who shows up.

What we need is a blog of minor-leaguers, a few of us who don't want to weigh in every day, but might want to do it semi-regularly. Not a new idea by any stretch, but there are a couple of us who might fit the bill.

Brad Carlson said...

W.B., I'm game if you are. I mean, I know you're part of your new family's blog and Mr. D is also at TvM. But if you're up for a collaborative effort elsewhere, we can talk!

Heck, while we're at it, let's talk to Gino! That would give us 3/4 of the NFC North division!!

Bad poetry and Football, I'm loving the idea of this new blog already!

And if Mr D joins us, throw in some obscure 70s songs as well!!

I think we need to talk. You are talking about what I'm thinking about.

Picklesworth, you too!

And Gino!

I'm going to e-mail you, Brad....

Please do not give up your blog we enjoy it so much. We love your sports posts and Jackie loves your posts about politics. Please, if our word makes any difference it would mean the world to us.

I think it's a great idea. But I don't think you should try to limit it; rather, it should be cosmic. You guys should be a black hole, sucking in every aspect of life as we know it on this planet and spewing it out the other end into a dimension of thought heretofore unimaginable. (with lots of potty humor)

Nuff said, git-er-done.
