It’s winter now and our beloved blaugrana are about to play a friendly in Kuwait against Kazma Sporting Club before a well-deserved break. Four of our stars–Xaviniesta, Messi, and Dani Alves–will be missing as they’re attending the FIFA Player of the Year gala, so they’ll be missing from action today. Messi will also be missing the Argentina friendly tomorrow thanks to an agreement with Maradona.
In response to all this, I’m going to go on a brief vacation, to re-energize after the long haul of the first half of the season and to focus on some important domestic matters (health care reform, the unemployment rate, etc). I’ll still be around and I’ll be doing some writing in the background as well as working to get the site’s new design up and running, but I won’t be doing daily posts and I probably won’t even be reading Sport and EMD (much less Marca) for much of what’s left of 2009.
Kevin will remain and will be posting when he sees fit and, as I said, there will be something coming from me in the next few days (I need a vacation so badly–I just wrote “new fext days”!), so stay in touch and have a wonderful end of the year and, if you’re in a part of the world where this is possible, stay warm and have a snowball fight or two (in Times Square!).
