When you stop by here at YESNetwork.com, I hope you get the chance to read all of the great blogs that are being written. It’s a big endeavor by a lot of people who have a passion for writing…and for baseball. I think just about everybody knows about Kim Jones’ background as a writer, for example. And writing has been an integral part of all my jobs…starting with getting a degree in broadcast journalism at USC, to my first TV job in Eureka, Calif. (I was the one and only sports person at the station)…to my next stop in West Palm Beach (weekend sports guy, had to write all my own stuff)…to CNN and Turner Sports (yup, wrote almost all of my stuff there, too…and now, to The Blob. (By the way, there’s a little tip in there for all the young pups thinking about going to journalism school…write, write, write).
And by now, you’ve noticed the title of this Blob, The Singy Ringy Thingy. Check out the blog of Suzanne Singleton, aka Ken’s wife, aka “Mrs. Singy” here on the Web site. She has a tremendous background as a writer and author, but what you might particularly like in one of her latest blogs is her detailed description of the three championship rings that Ken possesses. Click on her blog, check out the bling, and then try to figure out WHICH ring Kenny is wearing tonight on his right hand on the postgame. Between looking for that and looking for the old guy in different hats in Cleveland, The Blob has evolved into some weird internet version of Where’s Waldo?!
I received a request to take pictures in my office of Kenny and me enjoying our dinner. Well, he’s here for the entire Rangers series, so I’ll check with him and see if he’ll allow that kind of personal access (because it is personal when one is sitting there eating lasagna with a huge string of melted cheese hanging off one’s chin. That was not Kenny, by the way, that was me). I hope Flash reads this because then he’ll know he missed out on Spazzio’s lasagna. Sorry, bro.
So for now, do the Singy Ringy Thingy, and I’ll work on getting the rights for behind the scenes Singy access…and I’ll keep an eye on which bowl of candy he goes for…
In the meantime, here are a couple things in my office I thought might amuse you. The first picture is the TV we watch the game on…and yes, that is the Caddyshack Gopher making a cameo. The second picture is a drawing my daughter did a few years back that I display proudly…I guess you could say it’s something of an inspiration. I mean, how can Ron Burgundy NOT be inspiring to an anchorman?!
