  • A few things:

    1. The premise of my blog was highlighting my favorite times of year. Those times being spring and fall. I then elaborated on why they were my favorite times by tying them to periods in time on the sports calendar where there is generally a lot of excitement. Some people have that excitement in March not because of baseball, but because of playoff basketball. Some people feel it in August because football is starting back up again. Some people enjoy hunting, so November is their favorite time of year. All these things are subjective and do not invalidate each other.

    2. Just because a sport is out of season -- which, with the World Series being played later means that November baseball is incredibly exciting -- does not mean that stops being exciting. Often times, excitement can reach fever pitches in the offseason as teams make acquisitions and seek to build on their winning ways or fix their mistakes.

    3. Sure there are other things going on in Greene County, but no one blog post or story (aside from community notes and area roundups) can encapsulate everything going on in the county. I chose to highlight how the seasons are changing. Volleyball, football, and cross country all wrapped up around the end of October leaving way for boys and girls basketball to shine in the spotlight in November.

    4. Lastly, criticism is always appreciated. "As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another." However, criticism online can often times turn sour when it lacks obvious good will.
