Just the facts about a new blog


July 30, 2008|By PETER SCHMUCK

Editor's note: Sports columnist Peter Schmuck begins a new blog today. He'll hit on a variety of topics, but the focus will be Orioles and Ravens. This is an excerpt from his first post. For more, go to baltimoresun.com/schmuckblog.

The first thing I'd like to do before I unlink my tether from the journalistic mother ship and float off into the blogosphere is to separate fact from fiction with a quick game of true or false:

True or false: Peter Schmuck has relocated into cyberspace and will no longer be the bright, insightful and wildly popular columnist we've come to love in the print edition of The Sun.

False. I will continue to write two or more columns per week on a variety of subjects for both the print edition and the Web site.

True or false: Peter Schmuck's extensive experience covering the Orioles, Dodgers, Angels and NFL make him uniquely qualified to take you inside the Orioles' clubhouse and the Ravens' locker room.

True. It's either that or his slightly twisted view of the sports world.

True or false: Peter Schmuck will spend less time at sporting events and more time sequestered in his basement knocking out humorous and informative blog commentary.

False. I will actually spend more time at sporting events and team headquarters providing up-to-the-minute coverage of local and national sports.

True or false: Peter Schmuck is the only Peter Schmuck who will come up if you Google search "Peter Schmuck."

False. There is another Peter Schmuck who is an internationally recognized psychologist.

True or false: This Peter Schmuck could use an internationally recognized psychologist.

True. Enough said.
