Introducing “Glick on Gaming”

Back on the 4th of July, I said that that I wanted to start doing some non-baseball stuff on here as well.

This new feature, Glick on Gaming, is one such feature.

As the name suggests, it is about gaming. Video gaming, to be more precise. It’ll be an irregular feature with no real schedule, basically coming along whenever I finish a video game or want to talk about it. The form it will take will also be highly variable: sometimes it could just be a few short lines, other times it may be a long essay, review, or rumination.

Among the games you can expect to see covered in the opening parts of the feature are Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, Kingdom Hearts, and Red Dead Redemption II.

So keep an eye out!

The Week Ahead

Aside

It’s time for a look at what you can expect from the Baseball Continuum in the week ahead:

  • Olympic update. There have been some late changes to some Olympic rosters due to things like injury or suspension (two members of the Korean team have been replaced after they were found to have ignored social distancing during a recent increased COVID outbreak, for example), so I’ll note that.
  • Final Olympic preview and thoughts on the Olympics in general: Exactly what it says on the tin, complete with my prediction as to how the medals will turn out.
  • Potentially a “Neat Site” will be shared.
  • Possibly the first of a new feature that isn’t about baseball.

Stay tuned!

Blog Dealings: The week ahead

Here’s what to expect in the week ahead here at the Continuum:

  • On Monday, a consideration of who would be in a hypothetical “All-Time Home Run Derby”. No restrictions on league, era, or anything else.
  • On Wednesday, random assorted thoughts on the All-Star break.
  • On Thursday, I wrap up the Olympic team previews with Team Mexico.
  • The rest of the week, if anything, is TBD.

Thanks for reading the Baseball Continuum!

4th of July Blog Dealings

Happy 4th of July! Here’s an update on some of the stuff you can expect in the days and weeks ahead.

  • As I said yesterday, this coming week will primarily be Olympic previews as more rosters become available. There will also be a neat link put up next Saturday.
  • The blogroll is a bit out of date now due to some sites either going under or ceasing to update, so I’ll be making some changes sporadically in the days ahead.
  • Bizarre Baseball Culture and Breaking OOTP remain in development but I don’t have a specific idea of when they’ll be ready yet.
  • I also may be putting up some non-baseball writing on stuff like video games, movies, etc. in the not-too-distant future.

The schedule ahead

Aside

Later today (Saturday) or possibly tonight, there will be a post about the Blue Jays in Buffalo.

There will be Olympic previews throughout the coming week on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, depending on if rosters have been released. As of now South Korea and Mexico have released rosters (along with, of course, the USA and Japan), but to the best of my knowledge the Dominican and Israel have not. The order in which I do the previews will be a bit dependent on roster releases so I can’t give a hard schedule.

Next Saturday, there will be a neat link.

Blog Dealings: A preview of what’s to come

Here’s a preview of what’s to come here at the Baseball Continuum:

  • By the end of this week (possibly as early as today), there will be a “Famous for Something Else” installment. This one-year minor league also played several years in the NFL, but perhaps his most notable sporting moment came in yet another sports. Keep an eye open to find out who I’m talking about.
  • This weekend, I expect to have another interesting link to share.
  • Next week, there will be a column and possibly some other things.
  • Also in the works: an Olympic baseball preview (will happen once rosters are revealed).
  • A Bizarre Baseball Culture piece and Breaking OOTP are also in development, but I’m not sure when they’ll be up.
  • Further down the line: “International Baseball Culture” and some musings on who will be on World Baseball Classic rosters whenever the next one comes around.

The rebirth of the Baseball Continuum

Well, as you noticed, I’m back. Yes, the Baseball Continuum is back. I know that I’ve said that before, but this time it is for real. At least, to a certain degree of real.

So first I’ll be up front about it: I won’t be doing stuff every day. Maybe not even every week. But going forward, I want to have a steadier output of material. Sometimes it will be based on what’s going on in baseball, sometimes it’ll be about what I see online baseball-wise, sometimes it may have something to do with baseball history, and sometimes it might not be baseball-based at all.

And, of course, I’ll try to have some of my more “famous” (for lack of a better word) features like “Bizarre Baseball Culture” and “Breaking OOTP.” Only time will tell, however.

So, yes, the Baseball Continuum is back. So stick around.
