For a long time now, I've wanted to write about, like, the substance of what I do at Bleacher Nation - which is to say, NOT about the Cubs, but about covering the Cubs and running a professional blog. I don't anticipate it's going to be for everyone, and I have a whole rundown on what the site is and is not, but some of you might find it interesting. The site is pretty bare bones right now, and will probably stay that way for a long time. It's just an outlet for me, but I thought I'd give you all a heads up.

http://www.puckerpants.com

First substantive post, which, again cautions you that it might not be your cup of tea: http://www.puckerpan.../03/25/opening/

And the About page, which explains the name: http://www.puckerpants.com/about/

Especially given that the cat in the sink was just the beginning. I have *much* more cat-related freedom there.

A outlet for more cats AND an outlet for TWC trolling.

Puckerpants might just become the single greatest thing ever.

I started to read this, but then stopped as to preserve my previous thoughts of Brett. I liken reading this blog to being a fan of Superman for years, and then following Clark Kent around for a day while he gives his cat a bath in the sink and other such nonsense. I feel like I have really broken something that can't be fixed now. Brett, you have found your kryptonite. (note: I may or may not have had a glass or two of the Easter wine a bit early)
