[stextbox id=”warning”]Flash:  The observer is returning to home base after an  11-day  coaching search in the Caribbean. Thanks much to Paul Sykes, Sonja Sykes and Tom Stosberg for keeping things going during his absence. Good job, guys. Passed Paul on his way to Morgantown where he will be on the front lines this weekend.

    11 day cruise? Was Gruden on board? And, was Paul hanging out the window when you passed him?

      Joe, the most likely candidate was the leader of a Caribbean steel band. Offensive rhythm unbeatable.

    LOL. Talked to Paul earlier this morning when they arrived to tailgate. A brisk 40 degrees up there. So far,things are going great for them and they’ve not been harrassed…just a little friendly teasing.

    OK. Headed to Churchill to make more money to pay for his trip…I’ve posted my Satueday picks over at http://www.cardinaldominance.ning.com

    Friday was a good day for the Sonja selections and got a great tip in the Classic from a buddy that paid very well in the exacta.

    Hey, Sonja. He’s not answering his cell phone. Think Krags went out into the parking lot and told him to suit up?

    Yes, many many thanks to Paul, Sonja, and Tom for carrying on for the observer while he was carrying on on the deep blue sea. Had you all not been willing, I might have had to eat all that baked Alaska and shrimp cocktail by myself, a tough assignment but I was also willing to make that sacrifice.
