Friends, family and my loyal subscribers (all 9 of you) this evening I’ve had epiphany of sorts. Something hit me like a jolt in my finger tips, a slap on my ample backside (sorry for the imagery) or cuff to the kisser (Gorilla Monsoon reference). For months I’ve been lagging behind in terms of keeping this blog up to my mediocre standards. Poor technology, lack of time, lack of effort and lack of talent can all be used as realistic excuses to why this little blog that can’t has fallen on hard times. However since receiving an email from a loyal reader in Penticton, British Columbia (thanks Joey Youreal) I’ve decided to start my blog New Year’s resolution off early. Drum roll please……………………
I’ve decided that the year 2011 is the year that i’ll try to get Straight From The Arse nominated for a Canadian Blog Award. You might ask yourself “Self…is there really such a thing, a Canadian blog award?” or perhaps you might ask yourself (especially if you are familiar with the drivel that I provide) how on earth can this blog get any consideration for such a prestigious award?
For your viewing pleasure I submit to you the facts about my blog: I am Canadian so I qualify, I can with assistance put 2 sentences together a majority of the time (which puts me in the mid pack of Canadian blogs in the gr.2 to gr.3 category), I consider myself the Robin Hood of bloggers where I steal from the rich (good blogs) and give to the poor (my blog), I frequently write about the hideous state of the professional sports teams that I support (Leaf fans vote for me and the passion that unites us), I sometimes demonstrate the command of the English language (although the grammar portion of the language will always be a work in progress much like the offensive rebounding skills of Andrea Bargnani) and at the heart of the matter my blog is generally mediocre at the best of times and I come across that fact honestly(so hook a heavy brother up, would ya?).
While looking at the overwhelming list of evidence I think it’s pretty obvious that Straight From The Arse is more than worthy, n’est pas? On second though most likely not, but one can dream. Bang the drum my friends…..bang the drum. Arsy is back in town and he’s as mediocre as ever.
