A place, where nobody dared to go, I call it vacation.

Yep, that’s right. I’m taking a week off. So when you don’t see my posts next week, that’s why. I need to rest my little brain and reenergize my batteries. Don’t worry, I haven’t been suspended. I’m not in trouble. The Chron has not put out a contract on me, and since I don’t think the Astros know I exist, I’m not really worried about them. Though I will be doing my best to stay out of the way of Roger Clemens.

But I’m going to ask a couple of favors. Please keep coming over and checking out the rest of our fine blogs here at the Houston Press. And I’m sure my boss has something in mind for Ballz, so come back here too.

Also, I want to ask something else. I read lots of sports blogs, sports news sites, and newspapers everyday. But I know that I’m always missing something, so if you’ve got a sports site that you really like, let me know what it is and I’ll check it out. I can never have enough places to go to for info. And you hockey fans, I’d really like some hockey sites to visit. I know about Andrew Ferraro’s blog, and I read Russo’s Rants, but if you’ve got anything else, let me know.

And until I return, I hope that everyone has a good a Fourth of July weekend.

Meanwhile, I’m on VACATION!

Just don’t forget about me. It will only be a week. – John Royal

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
