Six years ago, I didn’t have a plan.
Today, I still don’t have a plan.
Six years ago today, this site was created on a whim. I didn’t have any expectations. I was just throwing shit against a wall and praying it would stick. Some are still here. Others, have vanished for various reasons. And we have had some new guys join us from time to time.
It’s not just once year that I thank all of you guys and gals. It’s many days. However, I make it a big deal on this day because back then, there were millions of websites just like this and today, there are many more. When I check the amount of visits from different people on the site, there are many more people who read us but don’t comment. Maybe because they think we’re lunatics and are afraid of joining in on the discussion, or maybe they just read for fun. So for those ones who just read it, thanks as well.
I think the best part of this site is when times are really shitty in our sports’ lives, some of you post links to funny things or make a joke about the situation. It won’t change what has happened, but it helps a bit at moments. For me, personally, I tend to live under the radar in my real world. I have never had Facebook or Twitter so this site is a place that I go to on a regular basis.
I do have a special thanks to Genrebuster for helping out here over the last few years. He once said, “we get results”. And while it may not be solely because of us, no one can argue the actual stats (cue Yeti). Five assholes in Chicago sports that we have wanted gone are out. Sadly, there are many more to come. And we’ll be here to cater to those who need us the most.
Yeah. We’re lunatics. But remind yourself that there are others just like you out there and some of them are here.
