That's what makes the message board so much better

The best thing about the message board is no die hard and no BetterNews.
Peg: Oh Al! Did you miss me?
Al: With every bullet, so far.

I found BN through Google, "Chicago Cubs Rumors" I think last off season. I got irritated reading MLBTrade Rumors and made my way here. I just read for a while then got drunk posted a couple wierd stories and was hooked. I don't really read anything else cubs wise. Good Work Brett!

Did you just (and by just I mean a week ago) Bazinga? I hope that's a Big Bang Theory reference. If it isn't, it really should be.

I am a BNV and am a part of the problem, I suppose. I found BN when I was curious about the new GM we were going to hire after Hendry was let go. "Chicago Cubs Rumors" went into Google, and it spit this out at me. Been absolutely hooked ever since (a whopping 2+ months ago).

Started checking out the message board just a little bit ago (like a week) since the main site seems to be getting muddled up with junk. Trying to catch up on inside jokes, which is why I keep posting in these old threads. How old is too old 'round these parts? I almost feel dirty posting in a thread that is 5 days old. Pardon me if I'm bringing back dead threads! Anyways, it's nice to be here and nice to be on a site where I think I'm one of the younger ones.

A good thread never dies, it just hibernates for a while.
Please don't feed the psychos.

See the problem is, that you are not a Doctor, if you were a Doctor then you would have know where the reference came from. BTW, Penny is my new "it" girl

Well, my turn to help Brett out with his market research.

Except for one problem. I don't really remember exactly how I found the site. I was excited about Theo and I found the Cubs Den blog written by John Arguello who I really like. Then I got sick the week of the Winter Meetings and was home for a few days just sitting in front of my computer keeping an eye on things, waiting for a big transaction. I'm thinking I found the blog through someone else referencing it on Twitter but I can't say for sure.

Either way Brett, I'm about to stroke your ego some more because I think you do great work. I enjoy your take on stuff, and the fact that you don't sensationalize stuff so far as I can tell. I also like that you keep fresh stories going!! There are a couple of other blogs that I like, but they don't have fresh material every day you can read. Brett has (for the couple of weeks I have been here) at least 2-3 articles a day. Love it!! Keep up the good work.

Thanks, SLTC. Keeping things fresh with useful/interesting/not bullshit content every day is a priority of mine, so I'm glad to hear that it's been impactful. Welcome.
