All good things

December 4, 2008

Must come to an end.

It is with a certain degree of melancholy that I am announcing the end of the End of the Bench.  This decision has been brewing in some shape or form for almost 12 months now, and with a good deal of thought process behind me, the decision has been made to pull the plug.  I am enjoying myself much more on the couch these days, just sitting and rooting my favorite hockey team on to victories, losses, and all the minutes in between. 

My life has shifted from where it was when I started this site nearly three years ago, and while I love hockey and reading about hockey, I do not feel the burn to post regularly any longer.  To those who have made the End of the Bench a regular read; to those who took the time to comment and carry a dialogue with the authors; to those who joined the EOB team (Truth Serum); to those who linked to us; to those who put up with our real life rants and encouraged us to commit them to cyberspace: thank you.  It’s been a great ride.

The site will remain as is for now, so you can still go back and read all your old favorites.  But new posting will be non-existent.

Thanks for stopping by the End of the Bench.  It’s been fun.

  1. Sorry to hear about the decision to hang it up. Lord knows the Jackets need supporters where ever they can. Continue to carry the flag.

    Thanks for doing great work for the past three years.

  2. That’s so sad. Thanks for all you have done for the blogosphere Drew!

    You will be missed.

    Best of luck!

  3. Sorry to hear that man – out of curiousity, is Truth Serum going to be writing somewhere else?

  4. Its been a nice read and i’ll miss it. hope you have fun on the couch…

  5. Coming soon: Dispatches From Columbus written by Truth Serum. I’ll be blogging about hockey from a wider perspective and also cover more topics, like the failed Obama administration and the superiority of the Macintosh. You’ll find me at: dispatchesfromcolumbus.wordpress.com
    in a few days.

    I know, that is a lot to type into your navigation bar, but after a few months, you’ll hardly notice the wear and tear on your keyboard.

  6. Thank you, Drew.
