This is the scene where the heroes stumble off stage right. Which is… your.. left?
As some of you may have known, we’ve been contemplating a sort of blogging-career-direction decision (if there is such a thing) over the last few months. Some of us have wanted to hone our focus a little more, while others of us prefer to hang up the ol blogging boxing gloves altogther.
About a month ago, we got an offer to move over and cover college sports for a new network called Bloguin. As professional bloggers, if you will (that phrase is quite funny when one reads it in print) we’d get an opportunity to become more involved in the sporting arenas we care about the most. And it sounded fun.
Some of us are choosing to retire, while others are looking forward to the new obstacles and spectacles that lay ahead.
All of us, however, want to say thank you for the past 2 1/2 years on APIAS. All the pickem scrambles, road trips, prognostications, cursing of our favorite teams, cursing in general, making fun of local and national media, and trading jabs with friends and foes alike in the comments. If I had to guess, I’d say this site won’t go completely dead–after all, I’ll need somewhere to curse the Tigers bullpen–but at least for the foreseeable future, those of us moving on will be focused on the venture at hand.
It’s been a hell of a ride. If we pissed you off along the way, you probably deserved it. Sorry anyway. It was all in fun.
If you want to come along for the shiny new ride, it can be found at Stadium Drives.
If I may, I’ll leave you with two small bits of wisdom: “Make sure your bed is always made,” and “Keep Billy Gillispie away from your women.”
Peace, I’m outta here!
