Well, a lot certainly happened in the sports world yesterday. For one, Reggie Bush surrendered his 2005 Heisman. Unfortunately, even though his problems are off the field, his on the field accomplishments are being diminished. Not that any of his problems are excusable, but it is too bad because he was one of my favorite running backs at USC over the past few years. Another piece of big news was that thanks to Jorge Posada and the Yankees are now back in first place by one half of a game. Personally, I am a Rays fan, so not that I have anything against the Yankees, but I will not be rooting for them in this race. One more great piece of sports news was a Phillies victory combined with a Braves loss. That means that we now have a two-game lead in the East and is nice to see that Cole Hamels was able to deal a gem last night. The Phillies are going to need all three of the aces to come up huge because quite honestly I'm not too sure about Joe Blanton. He can be amazing, but he is much more sporadic than the other three. Once the Phillies are in the playoffs, I don't know who can stop them.

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.
