Oh man if you only knew how fried my brain is. I may have one brain cell left… HOG is back!
I don’t have time to write, I have more stuff to fix. But I’m glad to see the core of HOG is back online with the new server!
It has taken me almost three hours of clicking and reading to go through the golf blogs in the HOG Links. I went through and checked them all and deleted all the ones which have been inactive for more than six months or just didn’t exist anymore. If you have a blog, I recommend doing the same to help the bots feast on fresh golf blog food.
Among the sadly ignored blogs which were apparently left for dead was the USGA blog, with a last update of January 2, 2008. You see many entities like this try to jump on the blogwagon but they just don’t get it. Just “having” a blog doesn’t cut the mustard folks. Ya gotta work the thing.
Another sad find, was that the Reluctant Jam Boy has hung up his golf blog caddie bib. Sorry to see him go, again.
A not-so-sad deletion was the Wie-Blog, with the most recent post being “Wie to attend Stanford next year.”
I didn’t even notice this until recently, but I’ve surpassed the 2000 golf blog post mark!
With that many golf blog posts, one of them is bound to be decent.
This is the 2nd post in a row with a scary orange image.
The only thing more frightening than ghosts and goblins is my short game.

A note from Tony Korologos,
HOG Space commissioner and organizer:
HOG Space Participants: It has been a great 2008 fantasy golf season! I’ve truly enjoyed the competition (when I didn’t forget to select my damn team before the deadlines). It takes a lot of time to put together the scores, ship prizes and do all the "administrative" parts of running a league with roughly 200 participants. I did my best to get things done as my schedule allowed and I hope all went well for everyone. I look forward to making 2009 even better!
Let the sponsors know they are appreciated!
Do us all a favor and let all the sponsors know that you appreciated them. Click their links and send them some emails letting them know! We’d like them to feel like they’re getting some marketing value out of providing prizes.
I’m going to start looking for sponsors for HOG Space 2009 soon so please contact me to be a sponsor.
I’m considering using a different fantasy engine/provider for next year so let me know if you have any suggestions. In fact, I’m open to any suggestions at all to make the league better for 2009!
See you on the golf course and I look forward to 2009 fantasy golf!
