I got in at 8:30 last night after a terrific weekend in Cleveland for Sports Media 360. I’ll be posting more about the conference over the course of the week (including a photo gallery from my first Browns tailgating experience) but I do want to quickly thank Glenn Moore for putting the conference on, and all of the attendees for really making it a worthwhile experience.
Just a head’s up: I’ll probably be a day or two behind on our normal posts this week, so I apologize in advance or that. But I’ll get the TV schedules and fantasy stuff up as soon as I’m able.
Also, my apologies to those of you who posted fantasy questions during the weekend that I wasn’t able to get to. I didn’t have quite as much time as I thought I would once I got to Cleveland. But hopefully you all still had good weeks anyway.
And with all that said, it’s time for me to tell you What You Need To Read. And since we featured Minka Kelly on Friday, we can’t leave out Kate Hudson, who will always hold a special place in my heart for her role in Almost Famous.
