For those of you who don't know, Rudy Gay will be blogging this upcoming season on the Grizzlies website.

I, for one, am ecstatic, if for no other reason than that I no longer have to read Casey Jacobsen blog entries, which were the equivalent of a written colonoscopy.

Should be an interesting year, and hopefully Rudy has not only added blogging to his list of talents, but an improved overall game as well.

Glad to hear that Rudy spent time watching the Summer leaguers this year; that in itself shows me he is passionate about this team, and wants to succeed.

Also, I found it interesting about his mentioning Michael Phelps (Lord of the Olympiads), and how he is now the third favorite son of Baltimore behind Phelps and Melo.

I truly believe he will soon supplant Carmelo as the second favorite, gold medal or not. And hopefully, when we win our eighth NBA championship (I know, I know) he can take that coveted first spot.

Heck, he's already one of Memphis's favorite adopted sons, and continually rising.

Anyways, good luck this year, Rudy, both on the court and in your blogging endeavors; may you find success in all areas.

Oh, I can still beat you in bowling, Rudy.
