This is my 800th post in 21 months. I haven’t missed a day since the beginning (November 2007) and I’m very proud of this. Of course the time will come when I’ll miss a day, I’m sure of that, but until then, my record is unblemished. And 800 posts in 21 months means I’ve managed to add two or three in a day every so often.
I wouldn’t be able to do this if I had young kids, so I’d like to thank my kids for growing up.
I wouldn’t be able to do this if I had another wife, so I’d like to thank my first wife for divorcing me.
I’d like to thank Bob Gainey for all the player movement this year because, as you can imagine, it’s slightly hard to have a hockey blog in the summer. Especially a different post every day.
And I’d like to thank those who comment. Here’s how it works from my end. I wake up in the morning and turn on the computer, even if it’s a work day, and I have a look at the comments. They put me in a good mood. Even the ones who tell me my blog sucks. (of course, the obscenity-filled, nasty ones get deleted).Then, periodically throughout the day, I check, even at work when the boss isn’t looking, to see if more comments have arrived and if they have, I continue in a good mood. Okay, maybe not always a good mood, but often I don’t feel like kicking a fluffy puppy because of you.
In these 800 posts, I’ve talked about many things. Habs naturally, which is the absolute foundation. Bruins and Leafs, who are the devil’s advocate. Russia. My personal life. Flying with the Snowbirds. Hitchhiking. Expos. Altar boys. Las Vegas. Buying the Habs. Stickboy. Everything. And I plan on continuing.
800 posts. I think it’s a lot, especially when two years ago I didn’t even know what a blog was until Lawrence said I should start one and he told me how.
Thanks for reading.
Now I’m going to jump on a ferry and find out why there’s a suture scratching my eyeball.
