    I am no doubt seeking interesting opions, hence I am now an avid follower of this blog, Bob the people want an in depth blog posting about Tiger Woods

  2. Bob Long

    See December 3rd posting, “Tiger Woods”. The news that came out yesterday is still fairly mucky, but I will give another posting about the new developments very soon, if not today or tomorrow.

    Wonderful picture, Bob. You look great. God bless you.

    Hello Bob, this is Mr. Cassidy. Michael and Jimmy L. told me about your blog and I am enjoying reading it, even though I can’t stand Villanova. I am, however, a big fan of Chris Whitney, so I was rooting for VU football this year. I am enjoying your opinions and writing style but would look even better if our Fightins were covered. Keep up the good work and Happy New Year. Mr. Cass

      Thanks for the thoughtful comment, and I will see what I can do about adding some Phillies material. I posted about the Roy Halladay deal and subsequent trading of Cliff Lee 12/15, titled “The Phillies Big Deal,” if you are interested. Thanks again and I hope you enjoy reading.

    Hi, nice to meet you !

  7. Turd Ferguson

    Hey Bob, this is Turd, I noticed that you claim to have experience in covering every sport, but I noticed a distinct absence of a large genre of sports. Where are the women’s athletics coverage? As a huge enthusiast for women’s sports I am extremely disappointed by the lack of coverage. I expect more from you, Bob.

  8. Kristen Prazenica

    Turd’s comment is pretty harsh. As I’m currently listening to the podcast on the World Series, most of the callers are in fact male. Therefore, I don’t think it’s unreasonable that the majority of the coverage pertains to males as the primary audience is them in essence. It would be neat to see a female feature though :-). Like the website a lot!
