Please SPAM this blog

Hello ‘All’

I say all because I’ve been – a year? – without an actual response to this thing.

I’d taken a break from banging away at this blog to let the spammers catch up.


It amazes me how much junkmail this blog gets.

Actual replies are few and far between, but the spam – WOW.

I have to approve any comments that get posted to avoid all of the silly things someone with too much time on their hands could do, so I get an alert every time someone posts a reply. Since the blog got up and running and whether I put up new posts or not the SPAM producers keep pelting this poor defenseless little blog.

Is there anybody out there?

Have a question for your friendly neighborhood reporter? If so, send it along and I’ll reply – quickly, weekdays during business hours. The longest response times would come during the weekends and might not happen until Monday.

Random sports-related thoughts.

It was pretty shocking to see the boys basketball team (BBB) drop two straight. Hoosick Falls looked sharp but I question how much of that was GV making them look good.

On the mats the wrestlers continue to shine. Despite the narrowest of league title misses last week Walter Foster, Eric Hastings, Karl Palmer continue to excel for GV.

My knod for unfortunate wrestler of the week goes to two guys: Aaron ‘Fuji’ Mead and Kurt Ehntholt. Fuji got his head split open in practice, no word on stiches or a concussion and Ehntholt ran into a pair of very tough cats at 145 against the number one guy in Section II small schools at Tamarac and Glens Falls’ Bryce Harrington.
