Chris Gayle is racking up runs in the IPL, the Sixers just beat the Heat at home, J.P. Crawford can suddenly see the ball, and Red Bull racing has won a Formula 1 race. Let’s hope these trends continue even as our unseasonable weather has given way to a proper spring here in North Dakotaland.
Now all I have to do is survive the last three weeks of the semester and get my life together to head to Cyprus and Greece for my summer field seasons.
In the meantime, you should all go and download my most recent side project, The Letters of Edward P. Robertson, President Emeritus of Wesley College from 1935. I’ve blogged about it here, or you can download it here.
