It's occurred to me that there may be some folks out there cursing me for not writing more this week and wishing there were something new popping up on this blog more frequently that once every few days.
So I've decided to give you an opportunity to have both:
First - I renew my invitation to you to begin any comment you write here with "Hey Greg, you're a jackass". Don't go any further down the R-rated road than that because my kids read this, and besides, I don't need them learning any new words to use on me in the future.
Second - I'm inviting you to chime in on the subject of Vogalonga.
I'll get a more complete report from the Venetian experts next week, along with a copy of the paper from the day after.
But by now I'm guessing some of you have already heard things, and indeed a few of you were there to experience it first hand.
I'd like to thank Tamas for his comments already.
Sometimes I'll throw something up wonder how the commentors will respond, or if anybody will comment at all.
Tell us what you know, what your opinions are of the day, the race, and how it was handled by both rowers and race officials.
Some I've talked to have expressed their displeasure over the fact that there was no contingency plan for weather and sea related challenges.
Others say "tough luck, suck-it-up and deal with it".
What's your take?
If possible, please identify yourself when you comment; otherwise, some folks might not take your words seriously.
Hurl your best at me!
