Happy anniversary to my wife Kimberly. We've been together for 2 years so we haven't set any records but it's been a great 2 years and I'd like to thank her for putting up with me and for being an awesome soon-to-be mother. Our first baby is on the way (due date: Oct. 22) and hopefully he or she will be arriving when the Reds are in the World Series.
Surprisingly July has been a busy month for sports. Dennis and I usually like to cash in vacation days in the summer because it's hard to get off days during the heart of the football and basketball seasons. So far this month we've had the Commonwealth Games, Bobby Cox came to Danville and Lynchburg, the British Open, the ACC Kickoff, the American Legion Baseball State Tournament and the PGA's Greenbrier Classic. So following all this I'll take a break and head to Hilton Head.
When I come back we'll be full-go for HS and college football. Here's a look at our Football Friday preview schedule:
