The All-Star Break is upon us. Some of the best baseball has to offer are converging in Anaheim to fight for home-field advantage in the World Series. Tonight of course is the Home Run Derby. Over the years, I have enjoyed watching this event, but it often seems like if a player has an amazing day, the rest of the year is not quite as stellar. Does anybody remember Bobby Abreu's monster day at the Derby? If you do remember, you will remember that he was amazing. However, the end of the year was not quite as amazing and eventually led to him being dealt to the Yankees. It was as if he burned all of his home runs in one night and then couldn't keep up with it the rest of the year. I hope that doesn't happen to anybody this year. Do you know what else should not happen again this year? I vote for no more ties ever in the All-Star Game. I know that this is a few years old, but we are still making jokes about it. It was a joke, and I hope it never happens again. Enjoy the break, then tune in tonight!

After a year of economics, I have learned about supply and demand; to be honest, that's about all I remember. That's the concept I'm applying to this blog; I am supplying the quality writing that you as the reader demand (or at least I hope I am living up to your standards). My name is Zak Schmoll; I am a Business Administration and Statistics double major at the University of Vermont. I have been a sports writer in Central Vermont with the Central Vermont Sports Network, The Bridge, as well as a regular contributor to "The Local Angle," by Jim Higgins in the Times Argus, but I have now taken my audience to the Internet. I hope you will come along with me on my random journey through my mind on the Perpetual Blogging Co. Feel free to e-mail me at email@example.com with story ideas, criticism, comments, or honestly anything that will not crash my computer when I open it.
