If you would have told me two years ago that I’d be sitting here on Labor Day weekend about to write my 100th post for this blog, I’d sit there for a second, do the math, and be underwhelmed. However, there were many who never thought this blog would make it to 100 posts. In all fairness to them, they didn’t have that thought because they didn’t know the blog existed, as it is wildly under-read (in my opinion).
I’d like to thank WordPress, mostly for keeping track of how many blogs I’ve posted as I would never be able to keep track or take the time to count.
Sure it’s been a little inconsistent. This site has laid dormant for extended stretches. Desperate readers checking in only to see a post from 7 months ago still sitting atop the page. Like children sitting on a couch staring out a window hoping every car is their deadbeat father coming back from his 3-year journey to grab ice cream for the family.
Well, unlike that awful dad, I’m endeavoring to be better. Not in regards to quality of course, just in the sense of producing content. Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday there will be a new post on here. You can take that to the bank. That is unless I get a better writing job, which in case I will be taking actual checks to the bank.
But enough of these self-indulgent false promises. As you may have heard, the NFL has announced replacement officials will start week 1 of the regular season. Seeing as this labor dispute has no end in sight, I think it’s time to get to know these scabs a little better.
It’s time for, “Get to know an NFL Replacement Ref” with Bruce Herman.
Q: What’s your earliest memory watching football?
A: I went to a Superbowl party two years ago. I mostly went just to watch the commercials, but I found the game to be pretty neat. I think it was the Jaguars and Tigers or something.
