See you on the other side

And thus endeth the current iteration of ShysterBall. Starting Monday it will be all CTB, all the time. It’ll be everything ShysterBall is and more. I’m hoping you all join me.

But this is not goodbye old friends, it is merely farewell, for I will be back on the esteemed pages of THT come April with “And That Happened.” Same Bat Time — early — but different Bat Channel — most likely at THT Live. I may even start doing it on the weekends. We’ll see.

Like I said yesterday, thanks to all of you for making this blog everything that it has become. If it weren’t for your clicks, comments, praise and, occasionally, scorn, I would have quit a long time ago. If that had happened and I never would have realized my dream of becoming a full time writer and there would be one more practicing lawyer in the world come Monday. Nobody needs that.

I’m the luckiest sonofabitch on the face of the Earth, and don’t you think for a second I don’t know that. And for that allow me to, once again, offer my thanks.

Craig

This isn’t so bad- just do a Clemens and throw it over their heads once in a while, and we’ll keep giving secret handshakes to each other.  Hell, maybe even I’ll begin to bond with EvilEpirE2009.Will take my CAPSLOCK in for a tune up.

Can you tell NBC that partial RSS feeds suck?  And that maybe it would be nice to offer feeds of particular writers, rather than having to follow all the writers?

Now begins a new era, having to compete with the shouters for comment time. I guess I can tune-up by yelling at Skip Bayless. No wait, I don’t watch those shows.

I guess I’ll just have to keep reading. Best of luck.

Jon: give Yahoo Pipes a try. You should be able to filter the rss feed down to just what you want.

Any way we can get a Craig-only RSS feed from CTB?

Have fun, and I’ll be over there. Hopefully, I’ll have time to even comment once in a while again.

I’ve put together a Craig only Yahoo Pipes feed for CTB. It’s the URL in my name.

I love you, man.  I’d wish you luck, but I know you don’t need it.

Will – Thanks.  Though that still doesn’t solve the partial feed problem.

Thanks Will. 
@Wooden: Didn’t even have to play with Yahoo pipes…I could add a Craig-only RSS feed from CTB to “favorite feeds” just by using Will’s URL link.  I just clicked on “subscribe to this feed”.
Craig, Nice to know that there is one multiglobal corporation that recognizes talent.  Wish you every success.
Stupid question: Is there a feed at your “dead blog” so we can tell when you’ve posted there?

You’re right that the world doesn’t need any more lawyers….but does it really need General Electrics minions any less? Obligatory jokes aside, quick congratulations (because from the sound of things this is an upgrade in your private life) and I personally want to gratefully recognize and appreciate your fine work here.  For me, this mostly means your tolerance of – and even sometimes interest in – my (unintentionally) incendiary posts and their temperamental tone.  This past summer I wrote dozens (hundreds?) of posts that were often emphatically opposed to the sentiments of the masses and had lots of references to… Read more »
