This may not be my most eloquent blog that I've ever written, but it is my most heartfelt. I must warn you though, if you continue reading, it will become a little sappy.
The other day, a friend had asked me if by doing something, would he overstep his boundaries with certain individuals. I had to chuckle, because I've overstepped my boundaries on here quite often. I guess I do so, because it is easy to do...so blame it on the community members and CBS Sportsline staff.
There's no denying it, I like this site. This site has seen "more of me" then any other site that I blog or chat on (and before ya'll ask...yes, I do have a life, thank you). The reason why is, ya'll make it easy to do so. It's easy to get into a "conversation", it's easy to post my thoughts, it's easy to joke around and when it comes to football, ya'll feed my addiction to talk about it. Despite all the "issues" that may be on the board, it's this group of people that I would enjoy meeting at sometime and just sitting down over coffee and chatting, yes, even gmac.
What's even more is the atmosphere that the CBS staff has attempted to create. Oh, I know that some have issues with them, but I love them. From the admins to the writers to the editors. You make it so easy to interact with you. You're good natured when it comes to the joking. Forgive me Gregg, I have to say this, but Gregg Doyel was really such a sweetheart when I did a good natured blog on him and Eric Kay is such a kick when you joke around with him. Then there's Joe...what can I say about Joe? Gotta luv ya. Ya'll do make it very easy to interact with you. Even if it's just to "complain". If I knew where to send them, I'd send ya'll some cookies.
Dook had wished in a recent blog of mine, for a sense of community. I've gotten a small glimpse of the good people on here and there are many, and for me at least, CBS and the Sportsline community has succeeded in creating that. It's a good start, don't you think Dook?
So if ya'll are ever in my neck of the woods, let me know. We'll have coffee...and perhaps some cookies.
