Open Mikes Returning to Their Roots

In the beginning, the Open Mike free-for-all entries only appeared on Fridays. If anyone had something to share or ask that didn't fit in any other recent entry, they could drop it there.

There was a lot of activity in the Friday Open Mike, so it became bi-weekly, with another Open Mike appearing every Tuesday. It's been that way for years.

I'm going to return the Open Mike to its roots, returning it to its Friday-only glory. So if you have a rant in you, or a story to share, or a question for me or the hivemind, please use your reliable high speed internet and drop it in the most recent Friday Open Mike.

The Tuesday Open Mike is dead. Long live the Friday Open Mike!

What about when Friday falls on a stat holiday? Will Open Mike be on the following day, moved to Tues, cancelled, or remain unchanged?

If a Friday is a stat holiday, and I remember, I'll post the Open Mike on the Thursday to prevent the inevitable crickets.

What happens if it's a Leap Year and there is both a sun and moon eclipse happening simultaneously?

Once a week is enough. Only possible problem is Cheryl having double the amount of comments on her sports updates.

That's too bad. I kinda liked the 2 Open Mikes. By the way why is this entry posted under "Ch-ch-changes"?

Okay. Well, it was only one Open Mike before, so I guess it's okay it happens again. No more stat holiday Fridays until Christmas and I don't even want to think about Christmas. I want summer and baseball first.

Netflix posted a 'special' episode of Derek - and I had the pleasure of watching it late last night. What a treat. For fans of this delightful show, this episode is particularly sweet.

We watched the Derek special last night, too. I'll miss him!

I'll be participating more in the Open Mike's again starting next month. Life should be settling down soon. Solo Friday is fine by me.

@ MIke

Just don't jinx the BJays commenting when they are doing well like you did with our Leafs (Laffs) months ago.
I went to a Jays game early July last year after a long winning streak, they lost the game & lost many more after that & then out of contention for playoffs in 2014.

You're right, it's my fault the Leafs suck.

I can't wait until the weekend when my Orioles are going to beat the Jays. They better. I'm winning the money. I really am.

@twins from bolton

That's really clever, calling the Leafs the 'Laffs'. Brilliant stuff, right there. /S
