Hey there ladies and gentlemen!

It’s been a while since you’ve heard anything from the old benchwarmer, and I’ll freely admit that the same motivation that took me to such astounding athletic heights at OSU-Mansfield has been behind my writing as well. To put it simply…I’ve been lazy.

Well, that’s not completely true, although it has been one factor in my lack of production. Lately, there have just been more important things to write about than the personal story of some lousy benchwarmer at some obscure satellite campus of The Ohio State University.

At any rate, the series is not dead. In fact, I’m currently working on content for the second half of the series. I ask that you stay patient with me, because it will definitely be worth the wait (If you’ve enjoyed the previous pieces that is. If you’ve hated them…well…I’m afraid it probably won’t get much better.).

To keep you busy in the meantime, feel free to refresh your memory with the complete catalogue of posts from The Benchwarmer series: (available for a limited time only of course)

The Benchwarmer: The Prologue

The Benchwarmer: Just Plain Awful

The Benchwarmer: Making the Team

The Benchwarmer: The Jersey Number

The Benchwarmer: The Road Trip

The Benchwarmer: The Contest

Hopefully this gives you everything you need to survive the downtime.

Until next time,

The Benchwarmer
