I love vacations.
Some people claim that I get too many of them during the course of a year.
I say it’s never enough.
The problem with many vacations is that you do so much while on them that you actually need to get back to work to relax.
Not this past vacation for the Koza’s.
We ventured to Orlando and instead of our usual visit to one of the Disney theme parks or Sea World, we relaxed while hanging out with my mother and two of my three sisters.
Daily visits to their clubhouse pool was our main task for this vacation. My brother-in-law cooked our meals.
Our biggest expense was a family trip to get manicures and pedicures.
I can’t believe I actually got a pedicure and loved it.
But my wife still commented, “You never get away from your job or sports.”
Thanks or no thanks to my Blackberry, I am privy to every text and email from work so I can still get the job done while on vacation.
And thanks to the Blackberry, I can consistently check the sports news while also following the Indians games via the internet.
Technology is a beautiful thing, or is it?
So I guess I will tell my radio boss that the Koza’s need another vacation soon.
I was working anyway, right?
Other Koza thoughts:
• I learned through my Blackberry, while in Florida, that there was “breaking news” about Ohio State head football coach Jim Tressel.
Of course, we later found out that the NCAA release of its findings against Tressel was actually old news. We knew of everything that was released except for the dates of the appeal and the hearing. Interesting that there have been so many rumors of Tressel stepping down or being forced to resign with the latest report.
Buckeye Sports Bulletin editor Mark Rea says it is not going to happen.
Rea said if Tressel was going to be fired, it would have already happened and if he was going to resign, he would have done that already. It is amazing how many Buckeye fans have dropped their “in Tressel we trust” motto.
Do you think Ohio State football is better with Tressel as the head coach or without him? I think the record speaks for itself and that is why the university continues to stand by him.
-- Last week I wrote that I wanted the Browns to take Georgia receiver A.J. Green with their number one pick, which is the sixth overall. Talking with Bengals radio analyst Dave Lapham on Tuesday, he believes Cincinnati has targeted four players to draft: Auburn quarterback Cam Newton, Missouri quarterback Blaine Gabbert, Texas A&M linebacker Von Miller and Green. And when it comes to the Bengals making their number one selection, and fourth overall, they will take Green. Ouch!
-- It is hard to believe that I have been in our fair town for more than 30 years. Radio boss came up with a great idea of Koza’s 30 top sports memories in my 30 years working radio and TV in Limaland. So beginning Monday, we will count down my top 30 sports memories on Sportstalk with Koza. Should be a lot of fun!
