It may not seem like I'm the brightest, but with so much time to sit on the bench, I get to read a ton. That's why I'm here to tell you that I wish Scotland had a Patroclus to protect Barry Bannan's achilles. Our wee little Scot may be missing his nation's match against Spain tomorrow because he's hurt the tendon. If the little dude is more than just a little hurt, I'd be happy to take his place, but I don't think I can do what he does. The good news is that it doesn't seem serious. Nevermind everybody, Kirsten already got to it. They bring me into this place as the news guy, and I even end up sitting on the bench here. Don't mind me. I'm nothing but a professional second-stringer. Or third. Whatever. All I know is that I'm a sad pAndy.
Over at the Birmingham Mail, Mat Kendrick did a Q&A that went on for four Internet pages. There's some great information in there, but do you know what's missing? Me! All of those words and not one iota of a speck of mention about good old Andy. You'd think someone would at least bring up the fact that Mat's got me as a new competitor in the news biz. Probably just didn't want people leaving his little chat to come read what I've got to say.
And hey, how about one last reminder to listen to the only podcast on Earth that thinks I'm still relevant. The 7500 to Holte Podcast: Andy Marshall approved! 7500 to Holte: Andy Marshall approved! Kirsten Schlewitz: Andy Marshall approved for making Andy Marshall feel as miserable as he does everywhere else! Feels like home. Harumph.
Bah, who am I kidding. It feels good just to do something. I'll see you all tomorrow morning.
