I showed up on this site because of a link from either Rock M Nation or Bring On the Cats. After reading the column that was linked, I started reading the comments and I was hooked on lurking. A short time later I made my first comment and was told I wasn't snarky enough, if I recall correctly.
What I found out is there are others that like college sports as much as I do and don't mind sharing their opinions about a bunch of other areas of life as well. Even if I don't agree with an opinion or view, there is enough discussion in this place that I can focus on other areas rather than get into the normal flame war that happens on the internet. And most, definitely not all, of the fans on this site I would put into the well adjusted category as opposed to the nut jobs that you can find in any college fan base.
The things I've learned related to cooking, drinking and other interesting topics on this site is a rather nice bonus to the sports discussion. And the helpful attitude of folks is rather refreshing. I'm not going to mention anyone by sbnation nom de plume, but several folks on here have offered assistance or advice which was (is) definitely appreciated.
Now I find myself working again after a lengthy vacation and I won't have as much time to participate in the daily discussions, which I will miss a great deal. I'm not sure though that I can convince my employer that this site is required daily therapy.
Thanks to all of you for participating here and providing a welcome oasis on the internet and to Spencer Hall for creating this site. As I continue to be amused by Spencer Hall, at some point I need to purchase him a nice refreshing beverage or threeve.
