It’s a rough time for newspapers these days. As a result, I’ll be taking a weeklong furlough starting today and lasting through next Sunday. It’s discouraging, but it’s the reality of the business.
Unfortunately, that means I won’t be able to ruminate on Auburn’s possible bowl destinations for the next seven days. I assume things will be decided pretty quickly after Saturday’s SEC championship game. Regardless, I can’t work again until 12:01 a.m. ET next Monday.
In the meantime, think of my furlough as a weeklong party loosely resembling the video above by The Trammps, only with brighter colors, bigger lapels, wider bell-bottoms and funkier dance moves. (And plenty of video games. Oh, the video games.)
So I beg you not to abandon the blog in the next week. I’ll be back soon.
