Sites Holmquist trys, and often fails, to go no more than a couple of days without visiting (some of which Holmquist regularly swipes links from without attribution)
Blogs that for one reason or another Holmquist would like to read on at least something of a regular basis (always in development)

There appears to be a deal in baseball thus presumably making Glenn Reynolds and Todd of Todd's Place unsure what will happen in the November elections.
In the mid 1980s, when I was in grade school, I was a huge baseball fan. I collected the cards and memorized stats but then my interest waned in middle school. I still followed the game up till about 1998 when it became clear that the Tigers weren't good that season and weren't going to be good any time soon. Now I just don't care.
Call me a fair weather fan or what not, but I have realized that I don't follow sports so much as I follow teams. Speaking of which, the only football team I actually want to win starts playing tomorrow.
One thing I do find odd is how a lot of people, including my father, like to criticize Major Leage Baseball players for being greedy while they love the minor leagues. I hate to break this to such people but the minor league players are trying to get to the big leagues. They want to play in games where their performance is treated as the product and the fans care whether they win or lose. And, oh yeah, they want those big salaries.
