Quote of the Day “Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.” –Winston Churchill
I hope everyone has enjoyed Thursday Pickin as much as TB has. There are a few games left for this week and I’ll pick them and hope you do as well. But another season of college football is winding down and so too must this inaugural season of pickin. You will note that today’s post does not include standings from either last week or the season. This is so you will have to tune in at least one more time to the blog.
Actually, there are no standings because I am going through each week’s picks, and that’s taking a lot more time than a sane person would be willing to spend. But I have major awards to, uh, award. And I take the awarding of said awards very seriously–in a completely non-serious way, you understand.
At any rate, I appreciate everyone’s participation and my hope is you’ve found enough other posts of interests and/or entertainment to keep you coming around. If not, I’ll lure you back with special editions of Thursday Pickin (TM) (just thought of that) for the bowl season, the Super Bowl, the NCAA tourney, next season and any other event I deem pickinworthy. I also appreciate the humor that many of you have added to the posts and the discussion you’ve been adding to non-pickin posts. Without someone to read and comment, this blog is really just a diary, and that’s way less fun. Finally, let me say I am so disappointed in some of your musical tastes that quite frankly I can only blank stare at the screen sometimes.
While I’m taking stock of things, let me ask you to do a few things to help the blog. First, keep checkin in and joining the discussion. B, pass along the link to anybody who might get a kick out of it. And third, click on the button up top that says “share” and give the blog a plug so it can extend its reach in the mystical realm of google. Oh yeah, one other thing, if you want a cool avatar (an example is my cool goggles pic beside my posts) get a wordpress account and it will let you upload whatever you want. But no male nudity Smily. Oh, one more thing. If you think you might like writing the occasional essay but don’t want to start a blog of your own, shoot me an email and I’ll set you up to post directly on the TB site. Before you know it we’ll be bigger than Drudge and Kos, or at least a lot more fun.
