The skeleton crew is even more skeletal than usual today. Lots of work plus Yankee off day = lame post.
As I mentioned yesterday, this blog will be splitting in the near future into a Duke blog with the same name and a Yankee blog with a different name.
Today we will get closer to deciding that name. Here's what people tossed out yesterday:
The Yankee Yodeler
Robinson Cano Saves The Yankees
Sweet Robbie Saves The Yankees
The Blog That Ruth Built
The Robinson Ca-Know-It-All Report
The Yankee Bandits
If you want to endorse one of those, that's cool. If you want to suggest another, that's cooler. I'm partial to names that include 'Yankee' in the title, and also ones that are somewhat evocative. One of my favorite blog names ever was 'The USS Mariner.' Everybody was on the ship! But these guidelines can be broken if you've got something awesome.
Winner gets a slice of internet fame and possibly sweet prizes down the line.
Yanks-Jays tonight, with Burnett facing his old club on the turf. Toronto has turned into one of those teams I hate in a kind of surprising way. It's mostly Jose Bautista's fault. Wrap-up tomorrow.
A couple days ago, in a Business Reporting class, we had a mock press conference with a Public Relations class. Each of us represented a different publication, and mine was the New York Post. The PR class adopted a company. We faced the 'Apple' PR contingent, and their big announcement was that Steve Jobs had died in a motorcycle accident. We had to write an article after it was over, but I remembered from my NYC days that the big draw of the Post was the cover. So I spent most of my time on that instead:
I got an 85 on the assignment.
