Sink staying put; raves for Postcard Inn; catch a game

I ran into Alex Sink at the Armwood High football game Friday night (Go Hawks), and I asked her to give me something to write about.

Sink said that in the wake of her gubernatorial bid, she's gone around the state thanking supporters and found a lot of people interested in state issues, so she's considering starting a policy foundation.

I guess some are interested. I'm just afraid.

Of course, when I asked for something to write about, I thought she might confirm a rumor that she was going to move from Thonotosassa to Tampa and run for mayor. Sink smiled and said she didn't think that was in the cards, even though others had inquired.

Armwood (where my son plays), Plant and Jefferson are all vying for a spot in their respective state championship games this Friday.

Regardless of allegiance, find your way to one of the games and revel in the joy of playoff football.

That's all I'm saying.
