My previous thoughts on CONCACAF's Big Three and their road matches all came down because of my PE column. I'm writing about the qualifying in this region, sort of an ultra-expanded, thought-out actual column spinoff from my first thought about qualifying a few posts down.
This blog sometimes serves as a sort of pre-rough draft venue, see.
Anyway, my column topic and everything else may have all been for nothing.
I've got a call in to a local player and if he calls me back (we actually already spoke briefly in the morning) I'm going to write a column on him. If not, back to Plan A, which actually was Plan B to begin with... but nevermind that.
That's how this business is sometimes. You put a lot of thought and effort into a story and then it vanishes and you pursue something else. I had to re-write completely a 2005 LA Galaxy season preview story I wrote for someone because of the Landon Donovan trade, for instance.
So if the player calls me back and we chat, I'll wind up just using my mostly-written Tuesday story right here.
