dusty sleeping blogathonI am currently blogging – here, on Facebook, and on Twitter (hash tag #BNBlogathon for those who want to jump into the fray themselves) – for 38 hours straight, until slightly past MLB’s July 31 non-waiver Trade Deadline, thanks to your generous donations to Make-A-Wish. I’ll be doing recaps on the process throughout the day, but you’ll also see normal posting (Bullets, news, Pre-Gamin’, EBS), as well as a significant uptick in rumor/trade posts.

Hope you enjoyed the Live Stream. I did. Previous recap here.

Current Beverage/Stimulant of Choice:

Rally Bucket Status:

Encroaching on headache-inducing.

Strangest Thought Passing Through My Mind:

The Wife asked me to pick up some tights for her at a gym that will have them available only during a one hour window this evening when she, herself, will not be available to pick them up. So I’ve got to go do that with the bucket on my head.
