I'm back. Delighted to see the 'Pit is still largely standing, and doesn't look like this, Thanks to everyone who kept it going in my absence, particularly, 'charmer, 'Skins and temporary overlord soco, who can now return to the position of fomenting rebellion as usual, and also guest recappers pygalgia and hotclaws, neither of whom will I hesitate to call on again. Full normal service will be resumed tomorrow, with Zephon on the Snake Bytes and me doing my first recap of the season. I'll try to get a fantasy baseball update posted [if the jet-lag stays away!], but in the meantime, the link above goes to a piece I wrote for Fox Sports Arizona's website about overseas fandom, and is an appropriate full-stop to what I did on my vacation... A tip of the hat to hotclaws, wimb and muu for their help!
