6/3/18 – Dragging Steve Ott

I thought this might happen, but then it occured to me that just because you can do something doesn’t mean you should. I like Steve Ott, even if he wasn’t particularly good. He’s been retired for a year now. Why do that to him? You can probably search through the archives I’m putting together if you really want to find that info.

No, I wanted to say something about the state of this website. I’ve been asked to write things for Sports Day DFW, the Dallas Morning News’ online wing. It will inevitably make an impact on this place. Mooterati isn’t going anywhere though.

The reality is I’m going to make just as much money from the Morning News as I am from here, but the Morning News gives the prospect of a more immediate wider audience. I don’t expect them to be into me for the long haul either way, so for now I’m going to put my best foot forward and try to give the most interesting coverage of the Stars I can there. Maybe something good will come of it.

I appreciate the Pateron contributions. I don’t want to mislead anyone into thinking the WordPress Business package is a guaranteed item at this point. I don’t really know. If you would like any money you’ve contributed back let me know and I will make every effort to get it back to you. Otherwise I’ll plan on sending all of it to the Dallas Stars Foundation down the road.

With all of that being said, here’s a roundup of everything I posted for the Morning News this week with headlines I would have prefered:

Bird Dogging Phil Kessel

Miro Heiskanen is Jesus Christ in the flesh

Seriously though, he’s really good.

Brooks Orpik stole Craig Ludwig’s bit
