If you haven't noticed already, Extra Points is on vacation. I will return Aug. 25, just in time for the week leading up to the college football season.
At that time, a few new features will be introduced in this ever-evolving blog/journal/think tank/whatever you want to call it.
In the meantime, enjoy the space we are getting from each other because this fall is sure to present some polarizing issues in which we definitely won't be in agreement all the time. To me, the disagreements are one of the best parts of sports, and I look forward to debating with everyone because you all represent a fabulous collection of views and insights.
While I'm away, feel free to communicate with me in the comments section below or in private e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) and leave some stories, questions or viewpoints that are on your mind presently. When I return, I'll be certain to keep in mind the concerns or perspectives that matter most to you -- the readers, the fans, the people who make this job so special. Staying in touch with your thoughts makes me a better columnist.
Perhaps I'm a little nostalgic today because I'm less than a week away from my two-year anniversary at the Times. It's been the best experience I've ever had as a journalist (aside from my days as a young, burgeoning journalist at Western Kentucky University). And I'm excited to refocus, improve and make Year 3 better than the previous two.
Talk to you soon.
