Jay-O in town to participate in the Warrior volleyball golf tournament (think it’s today) over at Olomana.
He gave me a call, hoping to catch up at the arena tonight. Not sure if he’s going to make it but be nice to see him. Just as it was when catching up with Carlos Briceno the other week. What I miss with the way the job has changed is … not getting the chance to get to know the players better. With the Star-Bulletin’s deadlines as the afternoon paper. I could stick around and chat with players and coaches. As long as my stories got in by 1-2 a.m. things were good. Now, deadlines for a morning paper are very tight, especially of the match goes long. sometimes no time to get quotes. Or have to save them for the next day.
Kind of the beauty of the blog, being able to catch people to help out Ann with quotes and then post online. Still not the same, tho, as the old days.
