Ole Miss October 29th, 2001 @ 11:32 am PST
The more I see and read about Ole Miss, the more impressed I am. They won at LSU on Saturday, no easy feat for any visitor. Watching Eli Manning, he reminds me a lot of Peyton as a freshman at UT – sometimes shaky, but never hesitant to put the ball in there. He’ll turn […]

Stopping the Run October 25th, 2001 @ 1:55 pm PDT
Gainesville Sun writer Robbie Andreu has a piece today that opens with these lines: “There is no secret, no mystery anymore. It’s become common knowledge that there’s a way to knock the fun right out of the Fun ‘n’ Gun. Stop the run, of course.” Well, yes and no. There have been, as far I […]
Hemingway October 25th, 2001 @ 4:25 am PDT
It took a few hours, but I finally converted almost all of my Hemingway site into The Hemingway Blog. It’s in MovableType now and I’m very pleased with the result.

Hemingway and the Beasts October 25th, 2001 @ 2:25 am PDT
Hemingway and the Beasts, by Jens Bjorneboe, is an essay exploring animal symbolism in Hemingway’s works. Update (June 2020): When I originally published this post, it included a link to a Norwegian translation of Bjorneboe’s essay, which was hosted on someone’s AT&T personal webpage. That website has since disappeared and I have been unable to […]
