Taking another break

In an effort to use all my vacation in 2010 before training camp, I'm taking another break. I will be away from the AFC North blog until July 5.

Everyone was on their best behavior in the past while I've been away. But just in case, I will offer another warning.

If my substitute says our community was too rowdy, I will turn this space into an AFC North baseball blog for the remainder of the summer. The focus will be on the Pittsburgh Pirates, Baltimore Orioles and Cleveland Indians. (No Reds. They're in first place.)

So if you're not interested in wall-to-wall coverage on Ross Ohlendorf's pitching, Cesar Izturis' hitting or "Manny Acta ball," I suggest that everyone plays nice on the blog this week.

See you soon.
