Eric McErlain is taking a break and leaving the Off Wing Opinion in the capable hands of Jeff Cooper, Skip Oliva, Michael McCann, Jim McCarthy, Joe Tasca, and Ben Wright. And as much as I’d like to have Eric back at the keyboard, I’ll be sad to see these guys go. They’ve brought in new energy and brightened the place up.

Jeff, Joe and Ben have their own blogs to tend. But maybe we can persuade Skip, Michael and Jim to keep going when Eric takes back the keyboard.
