Here's the Short Version of the Story

About a year ago, I started getting crippling migraines, and it was really all I could do to get work for my real job done. The headaches were a result of too much time spent in front of the computer. I stopped blogging because I physically couldn't do it for a while. Then, after a few months, with the migraines gone (and a new monitor at home), I decided it might be nice to take a full year off of blogging. My son was reaching chase-him-around age, and I was getting very heavily involved in the Stanley Cup playoffs. I had a blissful spring of watching the Bruins win the Cup and then a wonderful summer that included a long vacation in Maine. 

Now, here we are, more than a year later. I've been to Texas and back with the family a couple of times. I've been to Atlanta and Las Vegas on business. I finally made it to my first Patriots game on New Year's Day 2012. The Bruins were failures this season, but at least they've won the Cup in my lifetime now. West Ham are trying to bounce back up after an awful relegation season in 2010-2011. TCU football did me proud by putting together an 11-2 "rebuilding" season last year. Aside from sports, I'm in a new role at work, primarily working in custom publishing. My son is 19 months old and sets out on a quest every day to destroy everything in the house. He usually succeeds. He's still a good boy, though. I wouldn't want anything about him to change. I couldn't ask for a better son.

And the blogging is back, too, although it's likely to be very sporadic and also somewhat less long-winded than it was before. The Boston Breakers have gone away--likely forever--and so has the Boston Breakers Report blog. I'm going to try to fire up West Ham USA again soon, though, maybe even today. And I'll try to drop in a thought or two here for those who are still interested in this site. Suffice it to say that I'm alive and well, even if I've been dormant online. Hopefully that will continue for a while... 


  1. The Breakers are not dead, sir. They live on in the semi-pro WPSL.

  2. I was wondering why there was a Groupon recently for one of their games. I have been derelict in my following of women's soccer
