Rumors of the House Rock Built's Demise Have Been Greatly Exaggerated (Again)

Knowing how sensitive and caring my readershp is, I'm sure everyone out there has been placing bets on what horrible fate has become your beloved editor in the month or so that he has disappeared from the face of the earth. Naturally, I'm sure "Gored by Wild Boar" and "Knifed in Back Alley by Jilted Lover" hit the post as even-money favorites, but everyone who didn't have "Frozen in Carbonite by Debt Collectors" can go ahead and rip up your race tickets, and thanks for playing.

So rest easy, I'm still very much alive and starting to get mobilized for the upcoming football season. Aside from a few new yet-to-be-Anagramaticusized recruits and a non-surgery, not a whole lot of interesting stuff has happened under the golden dome in these dog days of summer. As a result, the House Rock Built has been shifting attentions toward baseball, binge drinking, and the bevy of comely young maidens that emerge in Chicago once miniskirt weather hits. Additionally, I've penned two articles for upcoming Maple Street publications, so there will be some of my quasi-drunken musings in Here Come the Irish 2007 and my laugh-a-minute preview of the 07 Irish in the Michigan annual, Hail to the Victors 2007. Those should become available sometime in the next month or so.

So anyway, the House will be off to sunny Arizona for the holiday weekend and, shortly thereafter, will begin regular(ish) posting, slowly building in momentum until the fever pitch of preseason pandemonium of August, so plan your web surfing accordingly (and tell your friends). So, that's what's up in the House Rock Built's world. What have you been doing to deal with football withdrawl?

Oh, and if you're aching for some hijinks, I farked up a few pictures for Orson this morning, which you can check out here. I was more than a little embarassed to learn that former NYPD Blue semi-hottie Kim Delaney is not the commissioner of the Big 10, but rather eponymous sound-alike Jim Delaney. I think I'm going to have to go back and edit a few old posts that probably sounded really, really, really ignorant. Mea Culpa.

Damn... I was close... I had dragged back to Hawaii by Dog the Bounty Hunter (for a trumped up solicitation of a minor charge) and snuffed to death between his wife's bosoms.

Welcome back.

My vote was something involving underpants gnomes and Demetrius Jones, but guess that got thrown out too.

I had "tried to beat up a chimp with a folding chair". Guess I lost out.

I hat it on good authority that you were in Vietnam, busting out Gary Glitter. Now I have to rethink everything.

I placed my bet on "alcohol poisoning", in case you were wondering.

Someone gave me 1000:1 odds on you being in a bathtub filled with ice minus your kidneys somewhere in Mexico. So much for always betting on those odds.

Now how could this man, of all people, live without kidneys? I mean, he has a god damn super soaker full of Rumple Minze.

What, no comments on Ticket Gras? Or on the fact that Quinn has spent his vacation chilling with Bret Michaels and wearing leather chaps?

Someone needs to be filling the ND snark void.

New bet: this time it definitely is alcohol poisoning.

well, from today on out I think it's pretty safe to assume the culprit is NCAA 08

Well, if that is the case, say hi to Oil-can Manwich for me HRB. I miss him.
