I know that all four regular readers of this blog have been wondering where I’ve been, considering that in the past several weeks, the Illini throttled #1 Ohio State and are heading to a New Year’s Day bowl, Sexy Rexy has reappeared as the starting quarterback for the Bears, and Kobe Bryant-to-the-Bulls rumors were at a fever pitch for a period of time. There has been an abundance of potential blogging fodder, but the confluence of insanity at my day job and standing up in multiple weddings over the past month is the reason for the radio silence. Anyway, I’ll be back to blogging soon as things quiet down a little bit. In the meantime, make your plans for Florida for New Year’s to watch Juice Williams put a capper to a program-changing Illini football season, check out Illinois basketball at the Maui Classic next week (the only thing that could be as good as the football team beating Ohio State would be the basketball team taking down Coach K’s smirk and Duke), hope for the Bulls and Bears to get back on track, and most of all, have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
