Glad you're back. Hawaii is the finest place I've ever been and as close to "heaven on earth" that I think a person can find. My wife and I got married on the beach in Maui and are eagerly awaiting a return trip someday. . . .(KIDS!)
1. He wasn't. Sad when the world is a kid's oyster and he has to go get a little bite from Captain D's.
2. It's always nice to have some new perspective. Of course, there's the traditional slew of trash-talkers and trolls, but we can always hope to round up a few regulars to add readable commentary.
3. We'll see how this pans out. What we know, so far, is that not many people really care and that most everybody thinks he cheated. The TV ratings were pitiful and the memorabilia is supposedly not expected to reach the value that it would had the record not been tainted. My take is that long-time baseball fans will look not only at numbers but the storied past of baseball and who really changed the game (for the better).
4. Always great to find a "better half!" Enjoy the newlywed stage and take your time before having kids.
5. GO VOLS.
