    Hey John—Max Tcheyan here, a Bleacher Report Community Coordinator.

    I've been spending time on our Phillies page and read a couple of your old articles. Really on-point do good work.

    Given that you haven't written in a while, I thought I'd check in and see if you're interested in picking up your coverage again. What do you say?

    If not, it would be great if you could give me some feedback on why you decided to stop writing and what we could have done to better serve you. If you wouldn't mind, please shoot me a line at with any thoughts.

    Thanks so much,

    Hey John ,

    I just wanted to let you know that Bleacher Report has launched out of beta with an updated look and feel and some great new features. Check out the "Game On" link in the header to find out more.

    Next week we'll be launching the site to the world with some public announcements—and it'd be great to get a contribution from you between now and Tuesday to make Bleacher Report's launch a success.

    Let me know if you need any help with ideas or have questions. Have a great weekend John !

    Face it bub. As long as you root for Philadelphia teams you will suffer. Suffer like a man who rooms with Keith Sweat for 2 semesters. Yes, you will suffer a fate worse than a Friday night in your apartment swigging down a 12 pack of keystones before hitting South Street. Someday you will realize that if you want to be a winner you will root for the Yankees, Rangers, Jets and even Knicks.
    How dare you move to San Fran with no warning. Now let me hear one of these movie reviews.
