Well, we're back! I have a ton to blog about, but I'll whet your appetite with some short bits about the major topics:

Vermont: We had a fabulous week in Vermont. We missed the old house a bit, but the place we stayed was beautiful - right on Crystal Lake. We did lots of touristy stuff, saw a baseball game and the kids had a blast fishing and canoeing on the lake (both fishing poles and the canoe were provided with the house).

The Decline and Fall of the 2006 Boston Red Sox: Maybe one of the best parts of being in Vermont was the fact that we didn't have any cable or TV reception and I wasn't forced to watch the Yankees five game sweep.

Vintage Base Ball: Last Friday before we went on vacation I was given the opportunity by Jim Bouton and Chip Elitzer to invest in the Vintage Base Ball Federation, a new umbrella organization for vintage base ball teams. It sounds like a great opportunity, and I'm really excited to be in business with Jim and Chip again. Among others, former baseball commissioner Fay Vincent and sportswriter Frank Deford are involved, so this could really be a lot of fun. I'll have a lot more to say about this, but you can check out this article in the New York Times for information about the press conference that was held in NYC yesterday announcing the VBBF.

Lots more to come. Stay tuned!
