Happy Sunday...

Someone has to post something right about now. For two reasons.

One... it's easier than having to reload a page over and over again with over 600 comments.

Two... when a major contributor decides to up and leave, someone ought to say something, Might as well be me.

Honestly, I wish Zeke hadn't pulled his name from the contributor list after the TCS was over. I will miss him being around if he really has decided to up and leave for good. And if he reads this, I'll say right here that I hope he decides to at least comment on a regular basis again. He added a lot to this blog, I think we will all agree.

But... at the same time, he made his decision. He pulled his name out of contributor status abruptly. He said goodbye. Once that happens, we have to make the decision to act.

Meiz... the invite is in your e-mail box. Feel free to accept and start posting on Monday. You have earned it for sure.

And everyone who is currently contributing now has admin status. Should have done that before, but better late than never. When Meiz accepts, he won't have it right away. But any one of the contributors can change him to admin status. If I don't get to it, one of you feel free to hook Meiz up. And if any changes need to be made, any one of you can handle it.

One of the strengths of LOV has been that if someone has to step away, someone else fills the vacuum very quickly. It happened when I went into semi-retirement. And it will happen here.

Because LOV was built on the strength of all of you combined. Not some self-absorbent former ESPN page 2 writer who wants the comments section to go the way he wants it to, first amendment be damned. Lord knows I've probably disagreed with 50-60% of what is said in these comments because I'm a flaming, do-gooder, bleeding-heart, tree-hugging, commie, left-winger, liberal pinko. But I will always defend your right to say what you say no matter how D- it is. And I will defend my right to call you an idiot, and for you to call me a jackass for saying it. It's what makes this blog great.

(And for the record, "self-absorbent former ESPN page 2 writer" applies to more than one person out there, just so that one of them doesn't think I'm talking all about him and get all giddy that we're paying attention to him alone.)

All of you are what makes this blog what it is. And without you, this place is just a dead space. So when one leaves, I know all of you will continue without him.

We may not be the biggest blog out there. We may never be. But when you have a group who comes back over and over again because they're enjoying what's going on, and when you have people who go away for a while but for whatever reason get drawn back to hang with us again, you've got something pretty good.

And I do have a feeling Zeke will be one of those guys who will be drawn back at some point. Just my hunch. But that is up to him.

Now that I've said what I need to say, I will now fall back on the founding principles of LOV, and say one last thing.

Zeke... you're such a bitch!

I just learnt that Kevin Everett gives us perspective

JFreak said...

Kevin Everett is back.

Cool.

JFreak said...

Why is everybody so down on the Giants?

They win more games than they lose, and they make the playoffs.

Rev > Jim Valvano

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I have graciously and humbly accepted the honorable Reverend's invitation.

JFreak said...

stupid wrestling

The Rev said...

Don't quit!

Don't ever quit!

The Rev said...

Thank you Meiz.

I took care of the admin thing for ya.

Keith S said...

zeke will be back with a vengeance on Monday

JFreak said...

The Coltsmas thing was stupid for how much they played it up.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Now that was a refreshing shower

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Hey Zeke,

What's wrong with Raja?





eeerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

JFreak said...

Zeke is out with a lack of vengeance.

JFreak said...

Cigar Box Guitar for Rev

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Freak, you're a weird kid, but a valuable component. Who finds this stuff?

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

**Edit

Who looks for this stuff?

JFreak said...

Ed Hoculi and his pythons are in Indy.

JFreak said...

I don't look for the stuff.

It finds me.

JFreak said...

The Colts are playing 3 rookie defensive lineman.

blue said...

I hadn't seen a 5 scroller from rev in a while...refreshing.

blue said...

from the previous thread:
"Is blue playing for the championship in the keeper league, too?"

yep, and in my money league, probably go 0-3.

JFreak said...

Keith...

Ed Hoculi is a lawyer in Phoenix.

Go say hi.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Blue, I gifted you the Keeper Championship. Fucker.




I'm such an idiot.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I hope I can muster a tie with Blue because I have 60 fucking points rotting away on my bench already.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I need Welker for 13 grabs, 160 yds, 2TD. Want it. Need it. Gotta have it.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I can't believe I'm watching God's Team & KC over GB Chicago.

JFreak said...

GB-Chicago is a bad game.

Brett Favre has 2 ints.

Green Bay has had 3 blocked punts (1 for a TD return), and one fumble on a punt.

Keith S said...

"Ed Hoculi is a lawyer in Phoenix.

Go say hi."

He lives closer to zeke. Zeke would do it, but he'd probably turn around halfway there.

Keith S said...

Yes, Sage Rosenfels with a garbage time TD.

Keith S said...

Washington Redskins have offered a two-year contract extension to head coach Joe Gibbs

JFreak said...

Why in the world did Houston go for two with a minute left, down 25?

Keith S said...

And then kick it away instead of an onsides kick

Keith S said...

Happy Holiduhs

WFT?

El Padrino said...

giants in playoffs, 3 years in a row

Keith S said...

Rev's state of the union speeches are great

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

"WFT?"


This has to be in reference to Yhe Quitter, right?




Deke. Reporting from family Crimmus.


Loyalty.

Keith S said...

What are the round 2 TCS matchups? The bracket isn't showing up for me on LoF

blue said...

round 2 TCS is

Iam vs Jug
Blue vs Freak
Keith vs Deke
tem vs ep

JFreak said...

Sustenance!

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Keith is going to wreck me. I'm pretty much not even going to try in round 2

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Congrats to Blew, so far.


Do we still play next week?

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

I'll put my post up later. I'm leaning towards my own "gimmicky" type thing. I'm thinking of doing a basic weekend recap and doing a full weekly Fantasy recap.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

We'll see.

Ultimately, I'll do what the fuck I want to do. Guaranteed it won't be some lazy, trash bullshit. Sporting events will be the centerpiece(usually), since that's why we're here in the first place.

Dikembe Meiztombo said...

Okay, completely disregard that last comment
