Tired But Back At It

Stumbled through the door at 3:30 a.m. after visiting three national parks (Yellowstone, Glacier and Grand Teton) and spending the last 13 nights in a tent. It was a fabulous trip and a great chance to spend quality time with That Certain '14, who will have a novel new position at Yellowstone after winding up her seasonal ranger position at the park this fall. But more about that later ;-)

The last member of the vaunted Dartmouth Class of 2016 still with a team is center Jacob Flores with the Green Bay Packers. He gets a brief mention at the end of THIS STORY.
Now I've got to get some sleep, grind out a few stories to make pressing deadlines and start the BGA Premium preview series by week's end. If you haven't yet, be sure to renew or sign up because Dartmouth coverage will be coming fast and furious in coming days.
