When I was a senior at Fordham, me and my roommates played on an intramural softball team with half of the varsity basketball team. One game, I hit a walkoff homer to win a game, and the whole team, including the guys from the varsity basketball team lined up along the thirdbaseline to slap me five. Jason Harris, TJ... they were lined up to congratulate me... after all those games I showed up with my face painted to cheer them on. Ok, so they were linking b/c their founder was featured in the article, and I'm not wearing facepaint, but nonetheless, the fact that the article was linked to on the Six Apart (the company that hosts this very blog) website... well... it leaves me stupidly giddy, that's all. In fact, I'm in such a good mood because of everything... the article, the picture, the invite to the Learning Annex, the fact that the ubercool folks who are right at the heart of blogging are reading articles from a Long Island newspaper on some goofball blogging analyst... I hardly even noticed the jury duty questionaire that came in the mail. In fact, I'm more than happy to fill it out. Call me for jury duty. Sequestor me. Give it your best shot. You're not wiping the smile off my face, punks. I think I'm going to go eat a pomegranate.
