Help Doug Haslam Ride

I have a soft spot in my heart for noble charities, and Doug is contributing to one of the most noble: the Jimmy Fund. Doug is going to be riding his bike for the Pan-Mass Challenge, a grueling bike trip/fundraising effort with proceeds going to be Jimmy Fund. It's one thing to stroke a check or to get one's head shaved on St. Baldrick's Day as I did a couple of years ago, but Doug is putting his body to the test where others have their tiny bodies at risk -- children. Childhood cancer is, for me, the cruelest of diseases. It does not have to be, however. The are fine organizations like the Jimmy Fund that raise millions to fund childhood cancer.



Media Bullseye Radio Roundtable Drugged-Up Edition: Super Guest – Neville Hobson

If you read this blog semi-regularly, you'll note that I occasionally fill in for Chip Griffin as a co-host on Media Bullseye Radio Roundtable. It's always fun and we always have a few laughs. And I always learn something. Yesterday, however, I did my best to stay on top my game, because our host was the esteemed Neville Hobson, he of the "For Immediate Release" fame. And of the thought-provoking Neville Hobson blog. And a bunch of other smart, interesting projects evidence by his 4,053 Twitter followers. With a guest who has forgotten more about podcasting that I will ever know, I have to admit that I was a little nervous. Have a listen and see if you think I pulled it off. And if the Roundtable folks had conducted random drug testing (read: Manny Ramirez) I would have been banned from the show because I managed to throw myself down a flight of stairs the day prior - and was in a slight percocet/flexoril/celebrex/neck brace haze.



#Blogmonday – Let’s Share the Linkey Love

I have to confess, however, that my daily reading does not include some of the real blogosphere luminaries (I promised, no more about Scoble). Aside from Shel Holtz and Neville Hobson (whom I consider A-Listers), my daily reading consists of some of whom I consider to be the "hidden gems" of the blogosphere. And that's why I came up with the wacky idea (boldly stealing #followfriday) with #blogmonday.



As if I Did Not Have Enough Outside Projects…

I have found an outlet for my other passion in life: my beloved Boston Red Sox. Boston Hardball My pal and all-around good guy/Media Magnate, Chip Griffin, has revived his all-things-Boston-sports blog, Boston Hardball. Yours truly will be opining, whining and teeth-grinding like only New England sports fans can.
