I don’t know why you’re here.
I don’t know what you’re looking for, what you expect to find, how you think anything said here is useful, relevant, insightful or entertaining.
And I don’t know how you washed up on this site.
But I am curious.
This is why you’re here: the top search terms bringing people to our site over the past 30 days.
It’s that time again to drop another $18 to keep this blog around another year. And since I’m essentially alone in its maintenance, upkeep and contribution because my one-time peers (I guess) have better things to do with their lives, I’m thinking about making the place my own a bit more. Maybe redo the curtains. Hang a couple of Steely Dan posters in here. Shoot the cat.
I never liked that cat.
As a lark every so often, I take a peek at the search terms that are bringing people to squad-blog.com. To be honest, they’re not bringing many of you, and as I stated before I don’t know why you’d want to come (even I don’t come around that much, and it’s my damn blog). But the search terms always provide an interesting glimpse at what Google thinks we can offer — if you go about eight pages deep through the search results or are foolish enough to push that “I’m feeling lucky” button.
So, since there’s no one here to stop me and since the content on this site is, admittedly, pretty… eclectic… I’m going to start periodically posting the search terms that are bringing people here.
And I’m very sorry to say that “burt reynolds on a bear skin rug,” “burt reynolds sexiest man alive” and “hairy gay man” are not in the top results for the past 30 days. But there is a curious fascination with cedar waxwings out there. Hmmm.
I guess I really am going to have to do something about that.
While I am not completely new to the media, having written a few sports stories for the local newspaper and being a highly unpaid intern for morning radio on the old 99X (99.7 FM — everything alternative, including my lifestyle), I am new to blogging. To introduce myself, I would first like to express how much I love those “Most Interesting Man in the World” commercials.
Sexiest man alive? Try sexiest man ever!
Of course, those commercials would cease to exist if it weren’t for the man behind the scenes.
There was a man who inspired such witty comments as, “He’s been the best man at weddings of people he’s never met.” Naturally I am referring to the man who will be getting most of the praise from the bloggers on this site. The man who, without him, nothing would exist in this universe: Burt Reynolds.
Had Burt Reynolds never been born, the hillbilly would still be raping that fat guy from Deliverance. Perhaps his mustache has given him mystical powers that enable him to perform supernatural automobile maneuvers in a black Trans Am (Smokey and the Bandit) or an ambulance (Cannonball Run). Maybe he is an alien from a distant galaxy where all life forms are perfect physical specimens. Whatever his secret, I feel confident when I refer to “The Burt” as the sexiest person the universe has seen or ever will see.
I could go on and on about the merits of Mr. Reynolds, but it is getting late and I need to go let my cat, named Burt Reynolds, inside. I hope all you bloggers and bloggettes enjoy our future writings. I will end this blog the way I should – but probably will not – end all my future posts… with a hearty “Hail Burt!”
