Blogroll Update

I’ve removed my blogroll from the site. And while I was at it, I removed dozens of blogs from my reading list at Google reader. Why?

I’ll be subscribing to some blogs that I don’t want everyone knowing I’m subscribing to. So, yeah, privacy. And all that jazz.

I could spend a lot of time managing a public list and a private list, but that won’t happen because I’m too busy and nobody cares: two events which guarantee stalls. If something is really good, I’ll share it in a post. If it’s pretty good, I’ll share it in the section to the right (New Posts I’ve Enjoyed). Else, you just won’t know what I’m reading.

The Rise and Fall of the New England Patriots: Blame Belichick

I’m not sure the Patriots previous 18 wins this season actually served them as well as history and Bostonians might have liked.

Had they lost tonight with a regular season of, say, 14-2, as they had in 2004 when they won the Superbowl, I don’t think they infamy of their loss would be great. Or even noticed. And the Giants would still have had an upset by any sports writing standard.
