Way back in March I posted this:
"Due to my personal/professional aspirations in my real job, things may be a little quiet over here for the next month (especially the next 2 weeks)... have no fear we aren't going anywhere and I'll try to keep up and post when I can."
Well I ended up getting the job I was going for. The amount of prep work that went into getting that job was nothing compared to what I have to deal with now that I have gotten it and my time constraints are extremely tight. I do not wish to reveal what the job is here, many of you that I know personally are aware, and if know who I am and see me at a game feel free to ask and I will elaborate. It is a job in the public safety world and it has an academy process (think boot camp but I get to sleep in my own bed) that I am currently in the middle of and will not complete until the end of the season.
That being said I really miss posting regularly and engaging in discussions here, on Twitter and on Facebook about everything on and off the field. I just unfortunately do not have the time to work on regular posts. Despite what you may think I put a lot of time into them and make every attempt to ensure they are as factual as possible. I feel that I am doing a disservice to my loyal readers and everyone that has been so supportive of us, our no holds barred style of discourse, and blatant disregard for anything representing proper journalism (we are an opinion site after all!). I refuse to pack up and shut down however... this site will return to it's former self eventually. I still think there is a need for a site that has an asshole spouting off his opinion on this team and sport... you all have proven that it's worth it... and after all isn't that really what the internet is for? Some loudmouth asshole to spread his opinion?
I can't tell you when things will be back to normal but I promise you that they will. For now, consider this a hiatus or leave of absence with me occasionally popping in to say hello.
