A lot can happen in five years. When this blog started on August 5, 2008, George W. Bush was a sitting duck president, Prince William and Kate's relationship status was dubious at best, Beijing was just days away from hosting the Summer Olympics, Yankee Stadium was still at its old address, Isaac Hayes, Bernie Mac and Paul Newman were all mere days away from their deaths, and two Boston sports teams were reigning champions (boo!).
Like I said, a lot can happen in five years. Five years from NOW, Barack Obama will no longer be president, my son and the royal baby will both be approaching kindergarten, the US will officially withdraw all of its troops from Afghanistan, Brazil and South Korea will have been the most recent Olympic host countries, and the current NHL CBA will be halfway finished. And that's just what is virtually certain!
Thanks to all who have stopped by in the past five years - hopefully this blog will still be remotely interesting to you in the coming half decade.
I'm a Bay Area native with a love-hate relationship towards my homeland... so I try to get out as much as I can, so that I eventually come to miss it! Oh, and I'm the teacher of some of the best kids in the world.
