Let Me Level With You

June 29, 2011 Leave a comment

I’ve got personal stuff going on in my non-fantasy sports life that’s overtaking me and distracting me right now.  Not enough to take me away from the team I have, but enough to to take away from the attention that the blog needs to keep up its standards.  And quite honestly too, the lack of pageviews I’m getting is starting to get to me a little.  I’m not expecting 100 pageviews everyday.  But looking at the site stats of where the small amount of views come from, it seems obvious that only a few of you guys are checking it up.

I’m not getting much feedback either, if any, on the site and its content too.  The only people that give feedback are the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic fans, who read the IFL Theaters that involve them.  They like them or are confused by them, but those are the only ones who give feedback.  And it hasn’t helped the leagues any.  I’m not getting interest from them about joining up for a league to fill in gaps that I’m expecting to occur.

I’ll admit too that I’ve lacked and slagged on updating the blog.  But it gets to a point where I just have to step back and think to myself, ‘Is this still worth it?’.   I still want to run the leagues, those aren’t going away.  But the effort I put into the blog isn’t matching what I receive from it.  It’s the same reason my wife’s webcomic is fading away.

Maybe I’m lamenting too much.  Maybe I’m expecting too much.  Or maybe a hiatus for a week or two is needed until I can get my head clear.  Just tell me something, anything.

June 22, 2011 Leave a comment

I’ve been caught up in a couple projects that’s taking more time than I intended them too, plus the weather has not exactly been kind to my schedule.  I love the blog, but work’s gotta come first.  Nevertheless, here’s a look at the standings after Week 11, and who won what last week.

IFL Theater: Managers Be Angry

June 1, 2011 5 comments

Before I begin, I know ‘Bulls Jam‘ said ‘To be continued…’, but I don’t think people are ready to revisit that series yet after what happened.  And I know that I do things a couple weeks after the fact, but sometimes the creative process takes a little while longer.  Anyway….

Chicago’s baseball managers have not been happy in May.  Cubs manager Mike Quade blew up at his team against the Reds a couple weeks ago after a bad performance.  So what do the Cubs do the next night?  Play even worse.  (Hilarious)

White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen blew up north of the border last weekend, after losing a 14-inning game to the Blue Jays.  Then he reportedly went after the fans the next day, and then blasted the media for what they reported on what he said.  Quite honestly, I have no idea what he’s ranting about here.  Might be something in the water in Canada.  But nevertheless, he’s one of my favorite manager/personalities in MLB.

So it appears that the managers might need to learn some kindness in responding to their teams, fans, and Chicago in general.  And who’s going to be the one to do it?  Ponies.  Confession time.  My Little Pony fans keep popping by the site and visiting, reading the two IFL Theaters that I have featured them in.  They pop by more than everyone else.  So I’m going to keep playing up ponies and sports in these works, and be a pageview whore.  It’s a good community though, they’re pretty sweet.

With that in mind, it’s time for the show…
