Today’s View From the Bull Pen
Putin and His Preciousssss
Some days you just have to go with silly. Really silly. Of course, the whole story of Vladimir Putin stealing Robert Kraft's Super Bowl Ring is pretty silly. And, I might add, a bit bizarre. This along with the recent news about Putin's divorce and supposed affair with a 20 something is clear evidence that somebody named Vladimir is having a mid-life crisis.

February 2009 We stop the presses
Now I ask you. Any great memories of your favorite paper?
Gotta admit…it’s never boring. It seems the infighting on the slopes has mad it’s way Sports Illustrated and beyond. Personally I’d like to say, Can’t we just get along.
I’ll be back later in the day for a bit of Rocky Mountain News memories. It was one year ago today that we closed the doors and stopped the presses on the greatest newspaper in Colorado. I really hope you’ll join me.
And, finally, yes, I’ll be making some more changes to the blog to make it feel more like a sports blog. Please be patient. Thanks.
