I've been actually wondering how long I've been visiting this site. I remember my brother sent me a link during (early in?) the 2010 season (something Bob Howry-related) on which I dropped my first comment. Don't think BN has been the same since. Sorry 'bout that, Ace.

edit: Well, OK, that didn't take long. 5/19/2010 Bullpen Desperation Roulette: Cubs Sign Bob Howry. And look at that esteemed list of commentators: Jeff, curt (née Hawkboy64), jstraw, Bric. And I had the audacity to post my comments as just TC. It's almost embarrassing.

I'm fairly certain I stared posting around this time last year, but I was reading for good year before that. I'll have to go back and see when I first posted, but needless to say than BN gave birth to MG and now we are all doomed.

Enjoying the thoughts (not just because they stroke my ego), and I'm finding it interesting to learn how many of you found BN via Google, originally.

Brett, it is on grave national security concerns that you must shut down BN IMMEDIATELY. (and yes, BN stands for what you want it to ;) )

I always obsessed over the Cubs, even before I found BN. I think it was 3 years ago around this time that I came across BN and I have been hooked ever since. Brett, or Ace when I started reading, does (in my opinion) the best Cubs coverage on the web. Since I started reading BN Brett has always done an excellent job of reporting Cubs news, even before ESPN. So keep up the good work Brett, and thanks for feeding my cubs addiction.

Lurked for awhile but really started posting when the season ended. Found it through google.

Don't lie you searched for "stud farm" and found BN thinking it was a dating site.


Wait. This isn't a dating site? Fuck this, I'm outta here.

Actually before I go I'd like to share that I have a date with Better News. I have to have him home before 9:00 so his mommy doesn't get mad.
Peg: Oh Al! Did you miss me?
Al: With every bullet, so far.

No MG, he's not a child. He's a 30 year old still living at home. Believe me, women find that sexy.

Wonder how my parents would feel about me moving in with them. I'm not 30 yet, but I can make being 27 and living in my mom's guest room sexxay.

Damn my college degree, damn you straight to hell. I guess my student are right: School is waste of time, bitches don't want smart they want a creepy basement dwelling. DAMN, you lied to me mother.

That is why there are no girls allowed in my basement/bachelor pad.
