Yes, I have been away

Sorry everyone, life gets in the way of blogging sometimes : ) Anyhow, am back and have an action item for you.

But, before I get to the action item, things seems to be moving along for the "home team" San Jose, and given that our population has passed 1 million, our numbers should help convince MLB that San Jose is "the" place to be (we already know this, just have to make sure the powers that be get the message as well).

Action item: Tomorrow there is a city meeting, early afternoon, and one of items on the agenda has to do with the stadium:
Tuesday, for the first time, the City Council will vote on a handful of principles meant to shape any future negotiations with the A's. While those provisions hold the promise for some form of city contribution, they also make clear such an investment would require a citywide referendum and couldn't include San Jose's strapped operating funds.
The item should come up at about 3 pm or so, and if you can, please try to make the meeting (always good to show the council and mayor that there is support for MLB). The meeting is in the council chambers, San Jose City Hall, and don't forget to wear your baseball hat : )

If you can't make the meeting, you can also watch online, click here to go to the live stream.

Here is a link to the agenda, print it out if you like, or save it for historical purposes : )

Ok, that is it for now, be back after the meeting tomorrow.
