This piece is not necessarily about sports, but rather about my struggling with the one thing I love the most.

I am one of the many fans and dedicated readers of this amazing social network for sports fans. I had never heard of Bleacher Report until I crashed into the site by mistake surfing the net for some quality sports news.

Once logged in, I could never go out. The site is addictive, and it is quite easy to lose yourself in it.

The problem with Bleacher Report is I know for a certain it is going to cost me my job. It is the first thing I do when I get to my office, and I keep the site on until I knock off, and that is nine hours later. My occupation requires that I am always on the net and consulting. I am unable to do that because of B/R.

I am not certain of the numbers, but I have always wondered if there's anyone out there who has lost their jobs or at least been warned at work for abusing the Internet?

If there is anyone out there reading this and had experienced either job loss or citation of poor performance and abuse of company, please let me know. I feel I am about to go through that.

Each morning, when I wake, I can't wait to log in and check the comments so I can speak to fellow brethren, and although some of my brothers on B/R tend to personal and insulting most are intelligent, intuitive, and logical in reasoning, debating.

My missus has warned me several times of my addiction to B/R and warned me rather severely against her neglect, but my brothers are calling.

This is a letter to all my fellow Bleachians, thanks for the keeping the world of sports debate alive, and thanks to Zander for a brilliant innovation.

Now if only I can remember what I am suppose to be doing here at work...
