Busy, Busy, Busy

Sorry about the lack of new posts. This has been an amazingly busy January and I have decided that I wanted to hold off on The Ohio County Project until I was able to commit the time and energy that it deserves.

This is a story that I wrote for work this week, that I wanted to share here as well. I apologize for the non-baseball post, but - occasionally - things go beyond baseball and this is one of those instances.

My grandfather has Pearl Harbor.

My dad has JFK.

I have the Space Shuttle Challenger.

They are the memories that stay with you forever, those "where were you when" moments that every generation – unfortunately – experiences. Twenty years ago Saturday, the Space Shuttle Challenger exploded 73 seconds after take-off killing all seven crewmembers.
