Belated Milestone

I’m going to assume that the greeting cards filled with your best wishes and your packages filled ornate gifts are just in the mail. I mean surely you wouldn’t have forgotten how important yesterday was, right?

Curious about what was so important about yesterday. It’s more than Koko the sign language gorilla’s birthday and more than Filipino-American Friendship Day….

It’s the Rider Prophet’s 3rd Anniversary!!

Yes we’ve defied the odds and managed to last another year… one that was yet again free of litigation I might add.

As you know the 3rd anniversary is traditionally the leather anniversary. Unfortunately, one member of the Rider Prophet staff whose name rhymes with Pan in the Shush, took that way too literally and showed up at my house wearing leather chaps… and nothing else to celebrate. It was disturbing to say the least. I live beside a park and needless to say Man in the Bush is no longer allowed in my neighbourhood.

The whole incident has me convinced that I will have to shut the blog down sometime before our 5th Anniversary which is the wood anniversary. Something tells me that if we are still in operation then I will have to pre-emptively put Man in the Bush on Administrative Leave.

Anywho, there were a number of notable achievements during my 3rd year in the sports-related prophecy business.

- A trip to the Grey Cup, filled with requests for pictures from fans and media alike.

- Being featured on a piece on CBC National

- Becoming a columnist for Fantas-Eh Football

- Being featured in an article in the National Post

As we head into our 4th year, I would like to give a sincere thanks to all my readers for your support and not ratting me out the authorities for the comments I’ve made that could be considered hate crimes.

I’d also like to thank my staff Man in the Bush, PR Guy and Media Consultant. Whether it be promoting my blog, have jokes written at his expense or rescuing a lost and disoriented Prophet from downtown Calgary their contribution to keeping this site going are greatly appreciated.

3 years wow. Longer that it takes Michael Bishp to read a playbook.
Love the blog and despite not ever receiving a royalty chq, I spread the word of the prophet

Gov, I swear the cheque is in the mail. It's not like I've seen you or been in your house in the past year. If I had, I'm sure I would have given it to you then.

But as a thanks from the Rider Prophet for all your support from day 1, drinks are on Media Consultant next time we are in Calgary.

Yeah, but only because I'll probably be spilling them everywhere by the time we find Gov.
