I just want quickly to notify all our readers that I will be taking a break in the next few days or weeks.
Hell, it can be seconds for all I know.
Mrs. Mania is in the late stages of pregnancy and is set to deliver at anytime -- we're at DEFCON 1 over here.
As a result, I will be taking a much-needed break for a few days to spend much-needed time with my family.
Updating and maintaining this site has become even more of a challenge these last few months. It's hard to find the time to do this right between all the building, shopping and seemingly endless preparation that goes into parenthood.
Somehow, it still manages to get done.
At any rate, in my absense I'm temporarily handing over the keys to Daddy's Porsche to our resident and reckless stepchild, UFCmania contributor Jesse Holland.
By now, most of you know Jesse and are familiar with his frequent posts.
And even though I can never resist taking a swipe at him, the fact that I'm entrusting my cyber baby with him while I tend to dirty diapers and thankless shrieks hopefully speaks volumes for what I feel he can offer our readers.
Hopefully, it's a seamless transition and no one even knows that I am away. However, I really don't think he knows what he's getting himself into ... kind of like myself.
Therefore, play nice and try not to rough him up too much.
I've challenged him to stay on top of the latest UFC news around-the-clock like I attempt to do each day. It might work out or he can fall flat on his face.
Either way, it should be fun to watch.
I'll more than likely check in, but expect very little input from me while I'm away.
When I return -- recharged and overtired -- we have some pretty sick ideas to get this site rockin.'
For chrissakes, there's no other option -- I've got another mouth to feed.
