Happy New Year!
I know everyone is celebrating the end of 2020, kind of like the Ewoks when they were cheering for the exploding Death Star — and I don’t want to be “that guy” — but we may want to lower our expectations for 2021.
The world is still a crazy place and they don’t yet have a vaccine for that.
On the plus side, if you’re reading this then you made it through one of the nuttiest years in history and I guess that’s worth a toast. Not that you really need a reason to drink in the New Year but hey, no point in turning down a built-in excuse.
As for New Year’s resolutions?
To keep our loyal Maniacs happy for another year, which is actually a lot harder than it sounds. I’ve been doing this full time for nearly 15 years and not coming across like a crusty old burnout can be challenging (mostly because I am).
That said, we’re just a few weeks away from the return of Conor McGregor, who rematches Dustin Poirier at UFC 257. A lot has changed between now and their first fight over six years ago, including the weight class, so we may be in for a hell of a fight.
See you on Fight Island!
