Correspondence From Our Correspondents

Blogging: It's fun! That sure is what I've found since I started He Score, He Shoot!. It's very rewarding to take time and effort and write something cool for people to read and enjoy. I've made a lot of effort to make it great in three ways:

  1. Try and write provocative, funny and interesting things, making this blog different from all the others.
  2. Do behind the scenes things like getting us hooked in the Blog data bases, search engines, and other like-minded blogs to get as many people as possible to come and read our posts.
  3. Invite three other people to come on and write as many...uh oh.
You know that feeling you get when you have to push someone who's vehicle is stuck in the snow, and a bunch of people get behind the car and everyone starts to push, and after 10 seconds you realize that not everybody's working as hard as you? My sentiments exactly.

Case in point: Washingtron. A lovely guy with a big heart and an even bigger love for hockey/the Oilers. I brought up doing the blog to him and he loved the idea, and he really wanted to be a part of it. Two months and two posts later, I'm the one of us breathing hard behind the Volvo.

Wash has been away on what can only be called a year long vacation where his only real responsibility is to eat all the steak his wonderful and understanding girlfriend puts in front of him. Let's just say that Wash has it so easy, he would have been envied by the French Royal Family. To prove my point, here is an excerpt from an actual e-mail exchange I arranged with his highness. Prepare to be sick.

Me: Hi Wash, how are you man?

Wash: I'm fine, thank you. And you? Hello? Is anyone here? Hello?

M: Hey man, long time no talk. What have you been up to?

W: I was in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada for a wedding and now I'm in Atlanta, Georgia for a comedy festival, and then I go to Toronto for the International Film Festival. After that I'm back to being me, and I will write another two entries to tide everyone over for at least another year.

M: So, you're one of the posters on this blog, right?

W: I am.

You've posted just twice in two months, what the hell is your problem?

W: Well, being the only person that reads my blog, I feel more qualified than anyone to answer this question. I don't know.

M: Do you actually consider yourself a "busy" person?

W: Rather. I certainly have "busy" hands.

M: Please name three (3) people less busy than you.

W: I suppose the other three posters on He Score, He Shoot... that's its name right?

M: How much time have you spent this week, "...just daydreaming... "

W: Not nearly enough.

M: Hey Wash, thanks for your time. I know all this typing you've done over the past 2 minutes must have made you awful tired. Any final thoughts for the readers?

W: Well obviously not...

You see what I'm talking about? It's gotten so bad that Now I'm posting Oilers stories. I don't want to post Oilers stories, that's not what I signed up for. The chicks. Now that's what I signed up for.

In conclusion, I want to thank the people who come to read He Score, He Shoot! Please keep enjoying it as much as I hate pushing cars out of snowbanks.
