To the extent that I ever get some time to do so, I do intend to write up reviews of a variety of recent things I’ve read and watched. Chief among them are the Game of Thrones books and the HBO series adaptation, which I find to be the best new thing on television in at least a couple of years. HBO just released their new trailer for the second season.
Earlier today (Friday the 25th), baseball practices started up across the SEC with Florida and South Carolina kicking off with scrimmages and Vandy having their first practice of the year. As with last year, I intend to launch of full series of previews… I’ve just yet to get the chance to finish them off. In any respect, there are high expectations with the Dores pulling in preseason rankings of 10 (Baseball America), 11 (Coaches’ Poll) and 12 (NCBWA Poll) in the last week. Florida is the consensus top team in the land, with South Carolina coming in second or third.
Over the next three weeks I will endeavor to do so before the Commodores kick of the season against All-American rightie Mark Appel and the Stanford Cardinal. For now, here’s a quick video from today’s first practice of the year. You’ll note that Coach Corbin’s first priority is working on the “Vanderbunt!”
