This Is Not Goodbye




As people who have been coming around these parts know my posts have been far and few between over the past few years, our lives have been growing busier and to be honest after a decade of horrible results I was suffering from a bit of Oiler fatigue. Even the resurgence of the club last year, while welcome, didn't get the creative juices flowing.

 A few days ago James Mirtle contacted me and asked me if I was interested in doing more writing and I jumped at the chance. I am excited and grateful to James for the opportunity to be writing for The Athletic. I have been a subscriber since almost the beginning and the writers and content cannot be beat and the fact that he has asked me to be a part of it, well, I don't even know what to say, I am very thankful. I am really excited for the chance to reach a larger audience and to be part of such a great team, both of the Oilers' group of writers, and of the larger group employed by The Athletic.

 So for the short term at least, this site will be shuttered and there will be no new content. (So no different some wags might say). It will remain up and I am sure that some day in the future it may live again. For all of you who have come by over the years I say thank you. I have always loved writing and finding an outlet for it was always something I dreamed of. I hope that you have enjoyed my tales and I hope that some of you follow me to The Athletic.

 Take care.
