My Money's on Woods

   I just placed a friendly wager on Tiger Woods finishing no worse than third place when he returns to golf at the Masters.  Frankly, I think Woods is the best pick to win the green jacket – his fifth –but that’s not a bet I’m willing to make .      Not yet. If he’s leading after the third round, I’ll double down.       Woods couldn’t have picked a better venue for his comeback.  He is more intimately familiar with Augusta National’s layout than with any of his former mistresses.        All the distractions – the sex scandal and the status of his relationship with Elin – will cease once he tees off in the opening round on April 8,...

About This Blog

Mike BosletWriting a bio presents a personality conflict to Mike Boslet. Do I write it in the third person, referring to me as Mike Boslet, or Boslet, like I barely know myself? Or do I take the casual approach, referring to me in the first person? After all, no one knows him (that is, me) better than I (that is, him) do.

What would Boslet do, I ask myself? He would try to write a bio in the first person, after which he would decide there are too many “I’s” in it and start over with the third-person approach. You see, Boslet spent 22 years working on newspapers, where “I” rarely gets past editors. And, by the way, Boslet is an editor as well as a writer, which only complicates things. Columnists and some feature writers can get away with the “I” word, but not reporters. Boslet served some time as a newspaper reporter and in his heart of hearts I am still one.

I think it’s time for Boslet, who’s been the editor of Orlando magazine since February 2008, to break the chains of his newspaper past and write the way he wants to write and not how some people (and you know who you are) would like him to write.

Hence this blog, on whatever he and I want to write about, in whatever way we choose.
