Due to my military service injuries, and other explainable circumstances, it's come to my attention (via VA doctors) that I am going blind. It may happen in the next 6 months...or may happen in 5 years...they don't know. Normally this happens to individuals in their 70's or 80's, but with my "closed head trauma" head injury history, it can happen much sooner, like now.

I've been a member here on SI since 1997 (if I REMEMBER right...lol) when I bought a Sony VAIO home PC at Ft. Lewis WA. PX. I got on the internet via a 56K Modem (OMG!!!), and hooked up with sports fans everywhere! Oh, I've…

Exhibition games have been played in Professional Football since the beginning of the sport. In fact, until league play was formalized in 1920, one could consider virtually all of an independent professional football team's schedule to be exhibitions. In the early years of the sport, teams often "barnstormed", and played squads from leagues outside their own, or against local college teams or other amateur groups, charging fans whatever the traffic would bear.

Sorry I haven't been around, been spending a lot of time at facebook lately. As for the blog, I now write one every Monday for 7poundbag.com. They were looking for writers and a friend told them about the blogs I wrote for some private groups and they asked if I'd be interested. I said no at first but then thought, why not, all they can say is your writing stinks and we don't want you anymore. So, Musings From the Bench is a weekly blog appearing at the site on Monday. Stop on by and check out the others stuff....they are the real writers.
Hope the weather's been good to you this spring. We might hit 45 tomorrow, but no more snow. Rain I can take but I'm sick of the white stuff. I'll try to stop by once a week so this group doesn't end up like so many others. Dead. Have a good rest of the week.
One day until Opening Day !!!!!

LCB - just read your blog. Don't worry about blowing your own horn, I'm glad you did.

It was very good. How often are you going to write the blogs for 7poundbad?
