I'm leaving tonight for a weeklong trip to the beach, so this blog probably won't be updated again until Sept. 10. I'll be back just in time for next Saturday, Sept. 8, which is full of big events: Ohio State vs. Akron, Columbus Crew vs. Chicago Fire, Slum-B-Q 4, Sword Heaven's album release party...

As for the paper, I'll be popping up a lot in next week's issue because I worked ahead on many things. Crew Cuts will not be appearing, however, because I don't want to write anything without knowing what happens at this weekend's home game against Colorado.

Anyway, I hope you all have a good long weekend, and I'll see you back here in 10 days.
