This may be my last post for a few weeks or even months. I am leaving for a two-month study abroad program in Russia this Sunday and I have to go to my cousin's high school graduation in Akron tomorrow. I'll be spending six weeks studying Russian at Tomsk State University in Siberia and then two weeks seeing Moscow, Novosibirsk, and Krasnodarsk. Hopefully my host family has broadband (a guy can hope, can't he?) More than likely, though, I will be slumming it up in some Siberian internet cafe so my internet access will probably be severely limited.

Although I just joined the board in late May, I really enjoy being a part of this community. And I am really looking forward to joining the Old Red Guard one of these days...

Anyways, I'll try to check in periodically from Russia, but if I don't, just know that I haven't fallen off a cliff or something like that. Keep the pressure on DanO and Miley...I'd like nothing better than to come back and find those two fired and Casey, Milton and Wilson all traded.

PS--Guess who's taking Cincinnati Reds gear for his host family? :thumbup: I'll see if I can bring back some pics of the first Reds fans in Tomsk, Siberia!

Hopefully interesting for the right reasons...not for reasons like getting mugged or drinking tainted water and then getting some hideous intestinal virus. :)

I heard the Reds used to be pretty big over there, but they kind of faded in popularity in the early 1990s. ;)
