A Few Thoughts on Indie Publishing

A friend of mine is looking to start his own blog, mostly covering fantasy sports.  He asked me for some thoughts as he gets his ideas together, and so we've been exchanging emails.  The one below talks a bit about what's it's been like for me over the past decade-plus, and I figured I'd share it in case anyone else out there has some of these same questions.

For what it's worth, I really like my buddy's ideas, and I'm quite looking forward to seeing what he eventually puts together.

Go Army Sports!

As we noted yesterday, Army Sports had a big day.  The day started with Women's Lax vs. Bucknell.

Saturday News & Notes: the AHCA & Army Sports

Happy Saturday, folks!

There's a lot of Army sports on TV today, but first, it'd be impossible not to mention what happened to the AHCA yesterday.  In the end, the House didn't even call their bill to a vote because it became clear that it was not going to pass.  Freedom Caucus members thought it was "Obamacare Lite," a fair charge if you ask me, and moderates in historically Democratic districts thought it cut benefits too much.  Also a fair charge.

In the end, the AHCA was a piece of shit that no one liked, and it went down because, well, no one liked it.

4-Star Swimming Workout

Last night's workout was a four-star affair not because it was so super-awesomely creative but because I just felt really good in the water.  Great days like that are too common to remark upon when you're a teenager, but at forty-three, they've become rare and precious.

I was on point last night, putting in 3800 yards in exactly one hour.  It helped that the water at the YMCA was a little cooler than it has been and also that I have a new suit with noticeably less drag.  I'd put up a picture of it, but honestly, it's so tight as to be nearly obscene.

Army Football Preview: 6 Questions for Spring Football

Army opens its spring football schedule today, and while I don’t want to make too big a deal about this, Black Knight fans have a few burning questions heading into the 2017 season.  The spring schedule itself isn’t too overly daunting, but given that the team played almost a month more football than normal due to their bowl schedule in 2016, I would expect them to head into its offseason training program looking substantially sharper than they did at this time last year.
The spring practice schedule is as follows:

What are you hoping to see out of spring practices?  Your mileage may vary, but my top six questions are as follows.

Can't remember ever feeling like this.  Good for you, Jeff.
