What ever happened to The Bucky Channel?

I feel like I've seen this exact post written one a hundred different blogs out there, so I'm going to keep this short and sweet. After the Packers loss last week to the Bears, I sat at my computer for a good while trying to figure out how to write a column that would be seemingly be going against the grain. Despite everyone panicking that the season was over because we lost to the Bears on the road, I didn't think the loss was that much cause for alarm. I'm not sure if it was because of how mad I was at people that were overreacting or if I was just tired, but I just did not feel like writing the article.

As the week went by, I still just did not feel like writing the article, and that has kind of been the problem around here lately. I'm not going to pretend like I'm a terribly busy guy, but when this blog was in it's heyday it's because I was either a) writing it from work, which is impossible now or b) working very little if at all, which gave me mounds of freetime. Hell, I've been planning on this article for five days, and I just haven't been able to.

It sucks because I've seen so many blogs come and go, and while I'm not saying that I'm shutting things down completely, I can now realize why those blogs packed it up and said goodbye. If I really wanted to make this site to be what I really want it to be, that would take up a lot of time and energy that I just don't have right now. Because I've been looking at this as more of a chore than a hobby, I'm probably going to shut it down for awhile. I don't really know what that means, or how long I'll feel like this, but to those of you that have been coming here this week wondering what the hell has been going on, I wanted to write this little blurb.

In the meantime, thanks to everyone who has come here and read the things I've had to say. Thanks to Bear and Gweeds for contributing, thanks to Dan for the good things we were able to do on SportsBubbler, thanks to Wally and PocketDoppler for letting me write some Winks Thinks over there (which I will still probably do on occasion). Thanks to everyone really.

Honestly, if this was my final post I would probably just take the site off of Blogger. I do love writing, and I do love sports, but I just need an extended break right now from The Bucky Channel. Unfortunately, it's going to be an indefinite break and I don't have a timetable for my return. Who knows, maybe in a couple of weeks I'll get the itch, and something will be bound to happen.

Man, Favre is such a douche.

Who is going to give our obscure website an inexplicable amount of links?
