The Streak Ends

December 15, 2010

Cal Ripken, Jr. had a streak of playing in 2,632 consecutive games. Brett Favre made it to 297 consecutive starts. Joe DiMaggio had a base hit in 56 consecutive games. I feel honored to join such elite company by having posted a blog entry for 44 consecutive days beginning on November 1, 2010.

I’m sorry to see the streak end today, but all I can say is that today I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of this earth.

I’ll make this short because I’m a little emotional right now and I just want to thank every other blogger out there for blogging and reading because without all of you I’d be sitting on the couch writing things in a little pocket notebook that no one would ever see and I… I… oh, I’m sorry. Thank you all!

    And why is the streak ending? (since technically you posted this, so really your streak is continuing). Or were you really just looking for the opportunity to link to Ray Stevens?

      I don’t think we ever need an excuse to enjoy the genius of Ray Stevens 🙂 But you’re right, the streak continues!

    A day off – even for bloggers – is necessary and feels good. Hopefully, it feels just as good to come back.

    Thank you for writing! Even if it’s not every day.
