on Raptors Republic who I enjoy talking with and consider one of my friends in the blogging world. We have a lot of mutual respect for each other and actually over the years have shared a lot of the same opinions on the Toronto Raptors. Finally we were able to get are schedules to work to hook up to do a podcast together. We talk about a lot of general topics in the 20 minutes or so we chat. First and foremost the impact of Rudy Gay on the Raptors. Other subjects include the future of Bryan Colangelo, what to make of the current state of affairs with Andrea Bargnani and if the Raptors are indeed playoff contenders or pretenders at this point.
If you didn't know already you can follow Sam on Twitter @Rapsfan and catch his work in the Raptors Republic as he does the Morning Coffee pieces with all of the Raptor news from around the net including on occasion from here in the Dino Nation Blog. He has been part of Raptors Republic I believe from almost the start and does great things for them. In addition, he has always been so kind to praise me for my hard work and dedication. The truth is all of us in the blogging community work very hard and I don't think any of us are getting rich from it. At the core we love what we do. It is thanks to all the great people that read our sites that make this something worthwhile to do at the end of the day. I look forward to doing this again and bringing the Madness and the Mania of the Raptors blogging world together again.
