It is that time of year again when the Phillies are back in first place, and I go back to scoreboard watching. It is a really fun activity. What happens is when you see that the Phillies are winning; if they're playing at home you look over to the right-field corner and see where the little ATL is. From there, you have to discover whether the Braves are winning. Right now, it really is that big a deal with the Phillies just ahead of the Braves. However, I'm not the only one who does this. Even the Phillies television station last night kept turning to look at the out-of-town scoreboard at Citi Field since the Phillies were playing the Mets have commenting on whether or not the Braves had a chance at beating St. Louis. Last week when the Phillies were at home, you could actually hear the fans react when the Atlanta score changed. It isn't enough just to win right now; everything is dependent on what happens with their opponents. All this being said, I hope that the Phillies won't need to worry about that because I hope that we'll keep winning and make it impossible for the Braves again on us.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org with story ideas, criticism, comments, or honestly anything that will not crash my computer when I open it.
