Hello and thank you for calling the Mount Sportsline...........
That is the number I used to call and the response I'd get. When I was a kid that was how I found out if the Mount won or not. At least when they were on the road. There was no internet - no updating scores on the bottom of ESPN - and for a long time not even a radio broadcast. So, I'd religiously punch the numbers in about 2 hours and 15 minutes after tipoff - hoping for two things. 1) That the line would be updated and I wouldn't catch hell when the phone bill came for needing to make 2 long distance calls - and 2) that the Mount won. They might not have necessarily been in that order. But who knows.
So why do I bring this up now?
Well there have been a few complimentary things said of the Fan Blog and my writing over the last few weeks. And I just wanted to say thank you for noticing. It's nice to be appreciated. But I really don't think what I am doing is anything special. I like to write - and at times it becomes very therapeutic for me - and I like the Mount. In addition, I like hearing what other folks think of the topics that I write about.
I don't think we'll ever set any page view records on the Fan Blog - and it isn't about that for me anyhow. Instead, its just about being the guy on the end of the phone. The guy updating the sportsline - letting other folks know what I already know.
Once again, thanks for reading - and thanks for noticing.
Please don't anyone call the number - it is no longer in service - and I'm sure has been reassigned.
