Winter of Jordan
TORONTO — I have officially entered my offseason. Much like Costanza’s "Summer of George!" on Seinfeld, this is the Winter of Jordan. It’s time to take time off. After the grind of 162 games, I’m going to enjoy hours of lounging around in sweatpants and catching up on the reruns of Law & Order that I’ve missed over the past seven months.
I haven’t blogged on here since I left Boston because, well, to paraphrase the great comedy Officespace, I’ve been doing absolutely nothing, and it’s everything I thought it could be. But, seeing J.D. Drew’s mug on my blog was getting a little old, so I figured I should toss something up here to hold down the fort.
Over the past few days, I’ve purchased the new Radiohead album "In Rainbows" which is pretty sweet. It’s nice to hear them return some to their earlier sound — not that I didn’t enjoy the likes of Amnesiac or Hail to the Thief, because those were killer albums, too. I also went and saw the movie "Into the Wild," which I thought was pretty good. Eddie Vedder did the music, which was enough for me.
I have managed to watch some baseball. It’s actually been nice to sit and take in the World Series from my living room, not having to worry about writing stories for a change. Not that I’m complaining, but you sure to enjoy just sitting back and taking in a game after working so many. I’m looking forward to seeing how the Red Sox’s revamped lineup fares in Colorado. I don’t think the Rox are going to go down easy in Denver. I think the series will head back to Beantown for at least one game. We’ll see.
Also, I know there’s been some talk about the rumor that’s going around about Jays prez and CEO Paul Godfrey stepping down from his position. According to Rogers, the rumor was simply mindless banter by one of the local radio personalities. According to one report, there was no basis to the rumor.
That’s all for now. I’ve got a whole lot of nothing to get back to doing.
