What’s up Yard?! Its ya boy B-Wood! Man, we’ve been coming off some heartbreaking games. It’s been a real sad time for our team because it seems like we keep losing close game after close game. Last night’s loss to the Pacers was extremely tough because it seemed like we had the game won. A couple of calls didn’t go our way that we thought should have (but we won’t touch on that because we don’t want to hear from Commissioner Stern). But we’re certainly disappointed in how the last 0.5 seconds went down at the end of that game. Even sadder than these 4 straight losses is the fact that your boy B-Wood is OFFICIALLY RETIRING from the blogging game.
I’ve had a great time blogging, interacting with the fans and letting yal know my points of view on different dicey topics but with the way this season has gone –at this point, I don’t want anything written about me that’s not basketball related. When you’re winning and you’re on top, you can really speak your mind and put your thoughts out there. When you’re losing and trying to stay afloat, you’ve got to know when it’s time to be seen and not heard.
I know some of my blog topics have been controversial but I just felt like writing a boring blog about how I went to the gym and got a certain amount of shots up just wouldn’t cut it. I tried to keep yal on the cutting edge and really let yal know what’s going on in my mind and it was hard to do at times. It was hard because a lot of times when you make comments, people really blow them out of proportion and interpret them in a lot of different ways than you originally meant them. Gilbert Arenas told me that it would be like that when I first started blogging but I guess I had to see for myself. I was amazed at how people cold really misinterpret my words!
I did a blog about how Mike Vick should be given a second chance because he had paid his debt to society and I had people calling the Wizards asking why I supported dog fighting?! I couldn’t understand how you read my blog and came to that conclusion.
After my last blog, which was definitely fiery and one of my favorite pieces, about how Elin Woods acted after the Tiger fiasco, we had people calling the Wizards saying that I supported cheating and violence towards women. Once again, this couldn’t be the furthest thing from the truth! You never want management fielding those types of calls about you, especially in a contract year (lol).
Even though I’m gone Yard, I leave yal with the latest Wizards’ blogger JaVale McGhee who is now a part of the Yard! Please support him like you’ve supported me. And to all of my Wizards’ fans, please continue to support us through these tough times.
I guess I’m going out like my main man Scarface said – “say goodnight to the bad guy, it’s the last time you’re going to see a bad guy like this again!”
Aight Yard, I’m officially REALLY REALLY gone!
