Hello all you fans of the biting bug! As you can see from the last entry, the Mets announced that Donovan Mitchell will be our manager for the 2008 season. Mitchell came into to town today (Wednesday) and did some interviews with the local newspaper as well as some local television stations so be on the lookout for those. Donovan will also appear on Ray Steele’s morning show tomorrow morning (Thursday, Valentine’s Day) at 7:40 a.m.
Around the office nothing too new to report. My intern Matt will be arriving in Savannah this Friday and start on Monday so I’m sure you will see him posting on this blog in the near future. Matt is also from California so I will have another West Coast native in the office to back me up.
The Southern Women’s Show went well. We met lots of people and Gnate even got his picture taken with the Sleep Train Mattress Center Sheep while he was there. There are no appearances scheduled for this weekend but keep an eye out for Gnate and the Gnats staff in the near future.
The Mets pitchers and catchers report to Port St. Lucie, Fla. tomorrow and I know I’m excited. I’ll be making a trip down on March 7-9 to check out the Mets as well as a few other teams.
In non-Sand Gnats news, I rented 3:10 to Yuma the other day with Russell Crowe and Christian Bale. It wasn’t a bad movie for a western. It kept me entertained for 2 hours and the ending wasn’t half bad. Rent it if you get a chance.
That’s it, I’m out for now.
