Another year over.
Being honest here, there are times when I do consider stopping the blog, but that feeling doesn't tend to last too long.
I'm still not too sure about this project's purpose, but even after another loss, another minimum of an hour's journey home on public transport, and no light at the end of the irrelevance tunnel, I'm still drawn here.
Perhaps if I was someone with something better to do, I would have given up already. But that's enough self--pity for one year, because we also had a lot of fun.
That whole Toumbourou/3XY/Ta Nea/Greek Media Group thing entertained us something special during November. It also saw us get a large increase of visitors and comments. So many comments! And then the issue died and you all disappeared. Typical.
For what it's worth, this was my favourite post of mine of the year, because it shows my love of free to air television. I also liked this one, because it has a picture of a very tasty looking piece of cheese burek. And who could forget board member Tom Kalas stealing/borrowing/reinterpreting the first half of this post for his presentation to South members on the NCR?
Unless something major happens, we'll be keeping a low profile on the blog for the next couple of weeks, but do tune in every now and again, as I have about a dozen posts lined up which will entertain you for about two minutes per day. Anyway on to the thankyous.
All my readers, whether you like what you see or not. You add an incentive to keep going. Double cheers if you left a comment at some point.
The South Melbourne Hellas Hattrick crew.
Arthur Papas, for being a good sport.
Krizar, who balances out my loose anarcho-syndicalism with his western suburbs fascism.
Gains, for sanity and perspective. And for dinner options that weren't run of the mill souvlaki joints.
Steve from Broady, for his exquisite story telling.
Big thank you
Kiss of Death for providing match previews, and an aggressive angle to an enterprise which often veers too close to the maudlin and the mawkish.
And of course
