I started writing an online column at timesfreepress.com on Oct. 25, 2010, and "The 5-at-10" has been there every Monday-Friday since — 1,000 consecutive Monday-through-Fridays — as of this week.
Thanks to everyone for playing along

Happy Wednesday. It's not as good as Thursday, but better than Tuesday.
Gang, remember the mailbag. Yes, that one.

The 5-at-10 and the cast of characters that make up Press Row spent most of last week at SEC media days.
Boy, that was a profitable weekend for the McIlroy clan, eh?
Gang, well, we're here. We're like a week away from high school football practice starting and about 10 days from college practice beginning.
