Each week FishDuck.com authors receive feedback from our readers. The complimentary ones go on the Wall of Fame at FishDuck.com International Headquarters in Zurich, Switzerland. The ones that aren’t so complimentary are tracked down by I.P. address so that some of our more aggressive employees can help the readers understand the error of their ways. At any rate, here is a sample of some from my in-box.
Why is your page so different from everyone else’s? Everyone else writes about football. You write about…what is it you write about? Jerry from Kelseyville.
Good question Jerry. Nice town you live in, too. I went through there once and gave myself a high five for not having been born there. Actually I write different things because that’s what my readers wanted. They told me that they are mostly hung over on Saturday morning and anymore talk about the X Cross Double Wingback Inside Zone Red Dog From the Spread Formation was likely to make them hurl.
You are simply the best. Can I come up there and kiss your whole face? Britney from Hollywood.
You make me blush, Brit. There may have been a day, when I was a young man and you were trying to get over J.T. that it could have been true and right and holy. But now I’m married, and you look a little too much like Mom for it to work out. Keep reading though, love. We may get that X Cross Double Wingback Inside Zone From the Spread Formation figured out…and then it will be magic. Please don’t cry.
You Inspire Me Sir. What is the Most Inspiring Thing You Have Ever Said? Jimmy from Eugene.
“What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us”. Actually I think Ralph Waldo Emerson said that. I don’t know. I said “I’ll take a Whopper ” today. I found that pretty inspiring.
Who ever told you that you have any talent of any kind, you schlockmeister? Anonymous.
I told you that we can find you from your I.P. address and I have to say that this one kind of hurt my feelings, Mom.
Kim Hastings is a 1984 graduate of Northwest Christian College. He cut his journalistic teeth as sports editor of a paper in his home town of Fortuna, CA, and, later as a columnist for the Longview Daily News in Longview, WA.
He saw his first Oregon game in 1977 and never missed a home game from 1981 until a bout with pneumonia cut his streak short in 1997. He was one of the proud 3200 on a bitterly cold night in Shreveport, Louisiana in 1989 for the Independence Bowl, and continues to be big supporter of Oregon sports. He is an active participant on the various Oregon Ducks messageboards as “TacomaDuck.”
