I'm cruising the Caribbean, so the Blitz is on hiatus for a week

March 18, 2011|By Matt Vensel

In my three years covering Baltimore sports, I've been able to do plenty of fun things, such as covering three Ravens playoff runs, occasionally watching the Orioles win baseball games, lacing up the skates with the Charm City Roller Girls and going one-on-one with the Baltimore Blast's leading scorer, Pat Healey.

I have yet to take a legitimate vacation until now (sports bloggers typically don't have six-figure salaries and a lot of downtime).

So on Sunday morning, I'm off to the Caribbean where I will be floating from island to island for seven days, showing off my beer belly and watching the NCAA tournament while drinking some frozen beverages with umbrellas in them. And you can be sure I'll be wearing flip flops the entire time. I'll Tweet photos.

I'd send you a virtual postcard, but I plan on being as far away from computers as possible. So you're going to have to dig up your own inane Baltimore sports nuggets until I return. We'll chat when I get back on Monday, March 28, assuming my cruise liner doesn't get hijacked by pirates and I don't find buried treasure in a casino.

Stay safe, Baltimore.
