Well... I Guess That's It


With only marginal fanfare, melodrama, or pomp I'd like to say that effective immediately Sports As Life will be closing it's doors. I know that there have been temporary slow-downs and standstills in the past, but this time the lights will not come back on. The reasons are many and varied but the meat of it is that the time is right - counter intuitive as that may seem.

To the noblemen and captains of industry who helped contribute over the past 2 1/2 years: Cooper, Trebor, TH, Jeff K and CH - thank you all for your hard work. I can't imagine this place would have lasted as long as did without your help.

Lastly, a huge tip of the cap to everyone who read, browsed, accidentally clicked, commented, didn't comment, lurked, laughed, spat with contempt, mocked, derided, agreed, disagreed, or otherwise. Your patronage was always noted and greatly appreciated.

In the prime of the sports year?

Hockey is around the corner (and the flames are going to kill this year), NFL just started, CFL teams are all starting to balance out with 500 records, and even the upcoming baseball playoffs may be interesting.

Who will publicly laugh when Tom Brady gets hurt? Who will comment on Fleury cracking an NHL roster? No chance for an about-face change?

It was a good run though. I'll miss the opportunity to forego work for a few minutes every day and check in on the site.

I'll still hold out hope that you'll be back, but for now, farewell.

Sorry to see you go. I suppose every editor has to ride off into the sunset eventually.

Enjoyed your insight and wit. I'm quite certain your father is extremely proud of your effort, dedication and passion for sport.

You have a great sports blog. This is my first visit but I'm impressed. I have two sports blogs myself and I'd like to exchange links with you to spread some traffic around. Let me know if this is cool.

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of troubles when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in large starting capital.
Nowadays, I feel good, I begin take up real money.
It's all about how to choose a correct partner who uses your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, and shares the profit with me.

You may get interested, if there are such firms? I have to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them:

You may probably be very curious to know how one can manage to receive high yields on investments.
There is no initial capital needed.
You may commense earning with a money that usually is spent
on daily food, that's 20-100 dollars.
I have been participating in one company's work for several years,
and I'm ready to share my secrets at my blog.

Please visit my pages and send me private message to get the info.

P.S. I earn 1000-2000 per daily now.
