RTT on NBC Sports' Hoop It Up: blogging about vomit will lead to bizarre lunchtime phone calls

You know, life is odd. On November 15, 2004, in a fit of boredom, I clicked on that mysterious, squiggley orange B on my Google toolbar and wrote my first blog post about nothing. Literally. After a year of intermittent posting, I finally posted a picture of Tennessee Volunteer Jesse Mahelona and was suddenly struck by the realization that more people were interested in the Vols than in stories about my youngest daughter puking on the family dog. Well, forty more people anyway.

Now, this week, I found myself sitting in my car during lunch talking to NBC Sports about Bruce Pearl and the Volunteer basketball team. I'm telling you. Life is weird.

Many thanks to John for having me on, to Dodd for the banter, and to Matt for editing out my most egregious errors.
