Phelps, Hoff families get big sendoff

Nice event over in Towson, where Baltimore County Executive Jim Smith led a pep rally for Olympians Michael Phelps and Katie Hoff. Of course, the two of them are already overseas, but John and Jeanne Hoff were there along with Debbie Phelps and Michael's sisters, former national champions Hillary and Whitney.

Don't know why anyone ever lets me get in front of a microphone, but it was nice to be a part of it along with Keith Mills, Don Scott, Jamie Costello, Nasty Nestor Aparicio (who's probably mad at me for making a joke about his age) and Mike Gibbons of the Sports Legends Museum. The street festival was great, too.

If this kind of thing is a regular occasion, I might have to move to Towson.

Eighty-five minutes to first pitch at Safeco Field. Pass it on.
