My wife and I had our first baby on Tuesday afternoon. Her name is Olivia and she is the newest addition to the Varsity Insider Team. (Sorry, Dan.)
Olivia (baby, pictured right) arrived at 1:44 p.m. and checked in at a healthy 7 lbs., 7 oz. Both mom and baby are doing great and we plan on returning home Saturday.
I’ll be out through the Martin Luther King holiday, but will return on Jan. 22nd. Although I’m on daddy duty, Dan has done — and, no doubt, will continue to do — a tremendous job in my absence. He and our colleague Nancy Haggerty will handle most of the coverage from now until then.
Until we speak again, enjoy the basketball. Thanks for your concerns, but, like I said, life now is better than ever…
