Return of The Mack

Howdy folks,

I’m David Zavertnik and I’ll be taking over for Scott. It appears between practicing his savasana pose and procuring vegetables from his backyard garden he’s a little too busy to contribute to Scotty McLuker. But fear not, I’m here to give it the attention it deserves.

You might be asking yourself, who is David Zavertnik? Why would I bother reading what he has to say? Did Scott adopt a child from Slovenia?

First, I’d like to say I’m incredibly impressed you could guess the origin of my namesake. Second, I’m Mutt’s for-now-just-an-Intern (hint hint fellas). I’ve been working here for just over eight weeks, or about 4,628 hours.

But David, there aren’t even 4,628 hours in eight weeks, what are you talking about? Right again, but I move quickly, so quickly in fact that I’ve been known to slow time.

Now, I’d like to tell you a bit about myself. I’ve told you my name, but left out the middle- it’s Burton.

This is what I look like:

I just graduated from here:

More specifically, I graduated from the School of Journalism and Communication. And I am pretty okay with LaGarette Blount punching the Idaho kid. It was an impressive hook and shouldn’t have anything to do with Oregon the university. If it does, it should make us look like badasses, which we are.

I’m a big fan running. I went to school at the running capital of the world, so it’s to be expected that I picked up a few things, mostly the skills and spirit of Prefontaine. Unfortunately I did so too late so I couldn’t take his title, but believe me, I could have. Speaking of running, Brooks, if you’re reading this, I’d love to work with you. I’ve got some ideas and I think we can put you above Nike.

Alight peeps, I like to keep my relationships interesting, even a bit mysterious, so I think I’ve given you a fair taste for today.

I’d like to leave you with a little tribute to the late great Mutt Blogger Scott Cromer.

David, hah. Nice to meet you? I had no idea you attended Journalism classes at Autzen, where was I?

Also, Slovenia is a beautiful country, so you have that going for you!
