Guess what? More TWFE housekeeping

I must apologize to my dozens of readers. I'm sorry for the dearth of quality posting this week, save for my Tiger game travelog. Things have been more than a little hectic at TWFE HQ this week. In fact, I'm currently posting from TWFE east side auxillary. It sucks when life gets in the way of bitching about sports.

Not to worry, as things should be back to a semblance of normalcy by tomorrow afternoon. Be that for better or for worse, well, that I have yet to determine...

First off, some sad news. There was an announcement today at, and it was one that was one we didn't want to hear. will be going on long term hiatus. As one of his 23 readers, I'm sorry to see him go, as Kevin's blog was one of my inspirations for starting TWFE. But Kevin has legitimate reason for stepping away from He is on to bigger and better things, with his new positon as online editor at "Mile High Sports Magazine." Congrats! I hope Kevin still has time to stop by TWFE occasionally...

As I mentioned a few days ago, I will be attending the Lions exhibition game tonight to drink warm, overpriced beer and to check out the latest Lions regime. I'll be the guy starting the "Bring back Wayne" chant sometime in the 3rd quarter. I'll be easy to spot, as I'll be one of the 20K at Ford Field wearing a #20 Sanders jersey.

But...I also have huge blogging news, as there will be an introduction of the sports blogging minds. I plan on meeting frequent TWFE commenter and one of the The Sports Frog's high priests, BrianDTW, at halftime. We plan to have a cold one and to commiserate over the fact that we are dedicated fans of the worst franchise in professional sports. We'll be the guys by the gates in the in Ford Field atrium, crying in our beers, reminising over the best Lions years of our lifetimes, the Wayne Fontes era.

In other TWFE news, I do plan to live blog my attempt to play the "Rod Allen Drinking Game." After making a few adjustments as to drink quanities, of course. I'm still determining what game will work best to insure my survival. Expact an announcment as to game and time soon. I'm looking forward to it, cause it's going to be a train wreck...

After some encouragement from Sweaty Man Ian, I'm also seriously thinking about starting another blog, one that will be 180 degrees in focus as compared to shenanigans here at TWFE. I'm still mulling over the blog details, as it'll be quite personal. You all will be the first to know when it goes live.

Go Lions! Go Tigers! Go away, Big Al!
