Sometimes You Get a Curveball


Sometimes in life things don’t go quite as you thought they might.  When you zig, life zags and when you think you got the next pitch figured out, you get a curveball.  Such it is with this writer who started this blog as a way to track his son play D2 baseball in the Northern Sun Conference for the 2009-10 season.  But, things don’t always go as planned, especially with teenagers who are trying to figure out what they want to do with their lives.

So, if you haven’t figured it out by now, my son won’t be playing NSIC baseball this year which leaves this blog in a bit of a quandary.  If he’s not at a NSIC school my interest in covering Northern Sun Baseball will be significantly decreased.  On top of that, my Realtor business is getting crazy busy which was already impacting how much time I was going to be able to put into the blog.  Here are the choices I can think of –

  1. Shut down for the time being with extremely limited content
  2. Post occasional content but leave it more free form for NSIC fans to communicate with each other via the comments
  3. Find some other contributors who want to step up and be writers for the blog

So, if 1 or more of you want to take a shot at being writers let me know and I’ll grant you access to the blog & train you on creating posts (or you could just e-mail me content which I would post). 

On a personal note, I feel bad that I won’t be spending as much time here.   To have had more than 56,000 visits to my blog in less than a year has been very humbling.  I’m going to miss meeting a lot of you in the stands.

So, instead of the NSIC stands I’ll be in some other bleachers.  I’ve spent 17 years teaching my son the game I love and following his every contest.  That won’t stop – ever.
