Update from Spain

Taylor checked in yesterday to let everyone know how he's doing! He writes:

"So far it has been an exciting trip! I flew from Burlington to New York and was delayed in Burlington- - before I could even get on the plane- -so I missed my flight scheduled at 6 to Madrid from New York. I scrambled but made it on a flight to Madrid from New York at 9pm and changed my flight from Madrid to Alicante since I would have missed that. I got to Madrid and had only 50 mins to make it to my gate AND through customs! I made it- - barely.

Once I arrived to Alicante I met the team and checked into a hotel where I will stay until my apartment is set up. I am hoping to get my car tomorrow and also have a press conference scheduled. Tonight I had my first practice which was great but pretty tiring. I did receive one of my missing bags before practice so it was nice to have some extra clothes. In the hotel I have internet and some channels in english so I'm good to go for a while! Hope all is well ttyl!"

Taylor is posting to and checking this blog from Spain so be sure to comment often!

Spain, Spain

Hi Everyone,

We have exciting news over here! Taylor recently signed with the Alicante Costa Blanca professional basketball team of Alicante, Spain.

If you remember, Taylor first played professionally in Greece and spent the 2006-2007 season in Biella, Italy where he averaged 7.6 points and 4.8 rebounds per game while battling an ankle injury from the beginning of the season.

His new team, Alicante Costa Blanca, plays in the ULEB Gold League and has also signed American Cameron Bennerman from North Carolina State.

Alicante is located on the Eastern Coast of Spain and borders the Mediterranean Sea.

Taylor is really looking forward to being in Spain and meeting his new team. He flys out early next week.

It's a perfect fit. The Celtics need some help. They now have Taylor's favorite player. He'd be close to home. It's the NBA. And, if we do say so ourselves, he looks pretty darn good in Green.
