Over the past few days you may have noticed the site being down on occasion or slow to load. We spent the weekend migrating from our old host to a new web host with an upgraded server. It’s just a bunch of internet jargon that I really don’t understand either. Point is, sorry if your LBS experience has been hindered in any way over the past few days and the plan is for everything to run smoothly and uninhibited in the future. LBS is growing and that’s a good thing! Thanks for being a part of it and we appreciate you continuing to spread the LBS love.
This will only take 30 seconds of your time, I promise. Our advertising partner would like more information about you because they’re trying to learn more about our readers. All I request is that you fill out this very simple 10 question survey. Upon completion of the brief survey, you’ll be eligible for a $100 American Express gift card. Pretty please fill it out, with sugar on top.
Here’s the link to the survey.
I realize that you may be reading the website at work or some other environment where you might not want people to know what you’re up to. With that in mind, I have taken a cue from CBS March Madness online and NBC’s Olympics coverage by creating our very own LBS Boss Button. It is located on the right sidebar, just below the search box. I feel it is a pretty convenient location and that it takes you to a pretty safe page. Please email me or comment on this post with your feedback on the boss button. Like the idea? Would a different location be more helpful? Does the page it jumps to work for you? Let me know … I’m trying to protect you so you can continue to enjoy LBS whenever and wherever possible!
It’s not often that we pat ourselves on the back here at LBS, and that’s probably because most of what we do is crap. I recognize that. But even if our expertise is only posting garbage, we take some pride in knowing that we’ve been doing it for quite some time. This little blurb here is officially the 3,000th post written at LBS, which isn’t bad considered the site is just over three years old (started in January of 2007 – we haven’t changed much, have we?). We’re averaging just over two and a half posts a day since the site’s inception. I realize that you’d love to see more content generated here. I’m right there with you. Unfortunately, things like full-time jobs and life sometimes get in the way, but I continue to make a great effort to give you an enjoyable product with fresh content as frequently as possible.
It’s almost funny that a few years ago we were in the heart of a blogs vs. mainstream media debate. Now, nearly all the big sports sites have bloggers working full-time, and even some blogs that started out part-time have gone full-time. That makes it hard to keep up with the competition production-wise. With that in mind, keep your eye on the byline for each post because you may start to see new writers pop up in an effort to provide you with more quality content. Lastly, and most importantly, thank you for taking time out of your day to read the site. Whether it’s once a day, once a week, or once in a while, I don’t care — just that you’re reading means a lot to me. Thanks for your support of LBS and please pass along the word if you know someone who might enjoy the site.
A lot of people who read the site have no idea that I work for Sporting News Radio as a show host and update anchor and that I work on this website on the side. Likewise, many people who listen to the show have no idea that I also have a sports site on the side. So for those who were curious or happened to listen to the Sunday morning show I was hosting during football season, I wanted to apprise you of my new schedule. LBS takes the radio waves by storm on the following nights:
Friday: 11pm-5am PT
Saturday: 8pm-1am PT
Sunday: 8pm-11pm PT
You can listen at sporting news radio’s site, on Sirius channel 127, or on your local affiliate. For those who don’t care and just want their share of funny videos, scandalous pictures, and inane commentary, sorry to bother you. Please carry on as you were. Thank you for your time.
We apologize for interrupting your normally scheduled programming to bring you this announcement. Some of you may have been aware that aside from updating LBS with frivolous sports content, I also host a show and do sports updates on Sporting News Radio. For the past 6-7 months, I had been hosting a Friday overnight show but that shift has moved to Sunday mornings. Meaning if you’re on the East Coast, you can kick off your NFL Sundays with me from 7am-10am on your local Sporting News affiliate or at radio.sportingnews.com. If you’re on the West Coast, I know it’s early but should you happen to be up sometime between 4am-7am PT, you can put on 1090am in So Cal to catch the show. This weekend we have the pleasure of being joined by former Super Bowl MVP Doug Williams at 5:25am PT/8:25am ET. We’ll also talk shop with Hall of Famer Warren Moon at 6:30am PT/9:30am ET. Keep it in mind if you happen to be up early on Sundays and thanks for reading.
That’s right, I’m going parasailing with my 20-year-old girlfriend. And keep it quiet — the wife doesn’t know anything about it! See you back here on Tuesday, the 21st (unless I find my way to a computer before then …)
I leave you with a photo gallery of Jessica Simpson and Tony Romo, back in their pre-breakup, happier days. You think she digs bloggers??
