AFC North Headline Of The Day...

To invoke a traditional analogy - Imagine you're a juggler, or one of those meticulous nut cases who spins plates on sticks.

You've got to keep your eye on everything at the same time, but that often means spending a few seconds glancing at each ball or plate successively to make sure that they're all still in rhythm.

In this situation, if you wanted to, let's say, stop juggling and throw a fastball for some reason, it wouldn't be possible without letting all the other balls drop. Likewise, if you wanted to pull some real fancy trickery of some type with a plate, you'd be guaranteed to lose all the other plates as casualties.

And in either case, focusing exclusively on the one thing could screw up the whole balance and then you'd be starting again from scratch.

This is how it feels right now for my life.

I'd love to be writing well thought out, funny posts that are moderately insightful in some way or another. But frankly, 15 minute windows of time don't exactly lend themselves to producing a quality editorial product.

Anyways, I need to take this whole afternoon, and tomorrow morning, and possibly tomorrow afternoon off from writing this here blog.

While it IS one of the ways I normally escape from the adult responsibilities in my life, unfortunately, I can't always enjoy that luxury.

So I hope to be back in full gear tomorrow afternoon, but this unfortunately means no Meeting People Is Easy, or anything else substantive, unless something Earth shattering Jeff Reed becoming a decent human being.

Until whenever, here are some links to keep you all entertained.
