First off, thanks to all who have sent well wishes to my mother, who was recently released from the hospital. We had a pretty big scare there, and the support and prayers we got from family, friends, fellow writers and especially the UCLA community was in a word, overwhelming. But there’s never just one word from me, so: Thank you all, again.
Secondly, as some of you know, I had to head north to help her for the week, returning Friday or Saturday hopefully, so Jill Painter and Daily News intern extraordinaire Sam Strong will be handling most of the blog. I’ll be back for the start of fall camp.
Thirdly, Kai Forbath signed with the Dallas Cowboys today, per his Facebook page, and the Tennessee Titans UCLA connection is sticking together.
