Hey fam. I’ve missed you all very much.
I know I fell off the face of the earth a little over a year ago and shirked my duties as your number one provider of fantastic internet content. I apologize to those of you who enjoyed the earlier form of this shitty website. I didn’t plan on that.
Anyway, I feel like I at least should explain exactly why the old version of the Takery died. In short, life happened. I never intended the Takery to be anything more than a place for me to shitpost and have a good time. The fact that it had decent enough traffic was frankly a surprise to me. If you want the exhaustive list of why I stopped posting and kind of turded out, here it is, in chronological order:
- I got married.
- I got promoted at my real life job and free time became harder to come by.
- My sister had another kid.
- I bought a house.
- Work consumed every fiber of my being.
- I had an unexpected death in my nuclear family.
- I’m now about to procreate.
So that’s the rundown of my own shitty reasons for being absent. With all that shit happening, the prospect of commenting on shitty sports writing had to take a backseat.
I don’t know what I intend on doing with this space, and it honestly may not meet prior expectations. I have a lot of non sports related great opinions, and may just use this site as a sounding board for that. Maybe not. Hell, hopefully it can be a sounding board for multiple people (please dear god write for the Takery, just @ me on twitter).
The second to last item on that list up there is why I decided to bring this shitty website back. I need to occupy my free time now with something, and maybe this can be cathartic.
Regardless, I’m back, and don’t know where this will go. Follow it or unfollow at your own discretion. Also, please excuse the shitty design for now. I cobbled this together real quick.
Love (except for Kurt),
-Dr. Hot Takes
