...Thanks to everyone who sent e-mails and messages encouraging me to keep the blogs going and updated more often. I have always intended for the site to be kept up to date and use it as my way of getting my writing out there in hopes of making the difficult transition from my tedious day job to a fulfilling career that I would actually enjoy. Working in sports in some capacity has been a lifelong dream & goal of mine basically since I was in Kindergarten, but as most of you know, life doesn't always go as we planned and bills need to be paid. It can be tough to juggle a crappy job & 2 kids while trying to operate an online store and this website all at the same time, and lately I'm having some difficulty keeping up with games and I would rather say nothing than spout off about something I didn't even see! With all that said, I want to thank all of the regular readers for their patience, and I will be attempting to set up a regular schedule for all blogs, or maybe just one for everything, that way I can always update it at the same time every day or a few times a week.

....Don't forget that Winter X-Games starts Thursday Jan.24, 2013 in Aspen, CO! Don't know when the events are happening? Just keep reading!

MUCH MORE INFO AND COVERAGE COMING YOUR WAY AS WE GET SET FOR WINTER X-GAMES 2013! We will be creating a new blog specifically for the X-games which may eventually become a full-time action sports blog and information center.

**UPDATE** 5:37 Pacific : Winter X-Games '13 Update Blog is now up and running and will be updated daily during the event.

.....The Baltimore Ravens may be heading to the Super Bowl, but they're simply this years "getting hot at the right time" team, who I give zero chance to win against the 49ers.  

.....Manti Te'o may not have originally had anything to do with the whole dead girlfriend hoax, but he definitely lied about some things and clearly tried to take advantage of the situation in order to boost public support for his Heisman campaign.

.....Bill Bellchick may not be the nicest person in the world and may not be willing to give alot of interviews, but like him or not, he is still one of the greatest coaches in the history of sports and the Patriots are always near the top of the standings no matter who is in the lineup or what the situation. True, they haven't won a Super Bowl in a while, but how many teams would love to be as consistent as New England and at least have a chance every year.

.....The NHL may be back on the ice, but this lockout may have a larger negative effect on the league than the owners anticipated when they decided to go the lockout route.
