And I’m damn glad.
It’s been two and a half months since my last post — by far the longest hiatus this blog has ever gone through — but I have every intention to resume daily blogging activities from this day forth. I’m a little ashamed to say my first post back isn’t an original lenNYsYankees.com work, but I figured it would be a good start.
I’m still working for Boston.com (remotely from Quinnipiac, my home in New Hampshire and even once from Florida), and my latest work is a feature on opponents who Boston fans loved to hate in 2011. So yes, some Yankees made the list. One of them was even voted the most hated opponent of all (including basketball, football and hockey opponents).
Can you guess the three players on the list? Check it out here, and let me know in the comments if there’s someone I forgot, or if there’s someone you feel doesn’t belong.
Editor’s note: After more than two and a half years of blogging nearly every day I didn’t think I was ever going to stop writing. Full transparency: It killed me inside that I had to stop. I should have left a note explaining why, but I’ll try to make up for it now.
In my first semester of senior year at Quinnipiac, I assumed my responsibilities as Editor-in-Chief of the university’s weekly newspaper, the Chronicle. I have worked toward making it a daily website, and also assumed duties designing our print version. That, combined with my obligations for Boston.com, my classes and the Learning Center (I’m a math and writing tutor) led to the blogging hiatus. Trust me, I wasn’t slacking.
I wanted to post on several occasions as I kept up with the news, but just had no time. Even my Twitter took a hit, but that’s also returning in full force. I expect to continue writing during my winter break and my final semester at school, as I will be gradually relinquishing some of my responsibilities with the Chronicle to next year’s leaders. Then after I graduate who knows where I’ll be. I’ll let you know when I know.
This blog is my most treasured accomplishment, and I wouldn’t still be writing without your continued support. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for reading.
Now get excited! There’s plenty to talk about. Making fun of my preseason predictions is item No. 1 on the agenda, but what’s the outlook for the Yankees next year? Is Brian Cashman doing enough this offseason to ensure another division title? What’s been stopping the Yankees from winning it all? That’s just a road map for the near future.
