A birthday card for me. We almost broke 3,000 page views on my 49th birthday Friday. And, while I take a short break to tap this out midway through the 182s, I want to let it be known here. Thank you for all the cards.
That said, I spent my birthday writing previews. I’m privileged to go cover a couple of tournaments live today, but I am not going to do any writing, from the Friday night or the Saturday districts, until after church on Sunday. Each district will get its own post, no roundups, and I would invite champion coaches to please email me anything they’d like to be quoted for about their teams’ performances. After I get done, I will add a quick note to this post showing how many words we wrote previewing our eight districts, review the brackets from tonight’s action and then pass out.
18,819 words on your kids were written this week in previewing the eight districts in our coverage area. I have enjoyed serving this community and making even my day be all about your kids. This is a truly special time of year for them, and they should be celebrated.
