We at The Daves I Know have long believed that there is no God. He is no more than a longer-running version of Santa Claus, an all-seeing being used to scare kids into behaving. However, we have been forced to reconsider our beliefs in the past two weeks, as it seems a preternatural power has kept us from being able to deliver you a podcast.
It has been two weeks since we’ve provided to you the stumbling, gin-soaked United analysis you crave. In that time we’ve run into vacations, scheduling snafus, and technology meltdowns. Despite having not published our revered pod, we can say that someone has at least been sitting in a bar talking into a microphone each of those last two weeks; it frustrates no one more than us that these ramblings have not seen the light of day.
Our biggest fear with this podcast from the outset was that it would take the shape of 95% of amateur blogs on the internet: two posts, followed by three weeks of silence, followed by one post where we say “sorry I haven’t written, guys, it’s been crazy,” followed by nothing ever again. Fortunately, that’s not what this is (hell, we’ve sunk too much money into this thing to let it collect dust). In fact, we are busier than we’ve ever been.
As you wait for the next installment, click around the site to see some of the fun stuff we’ve been up to. There are great new features like Team of the Week where we explore the unbelievable things that happened in the last week; FM Sims, where we use Football Manager to determine whom you should stake your child’s education on in key upcoming matches; and Weird World, where we delve into some of the most absurd and obscure soccer idiosyncrasies from around the world. Come back next week and see even more brand new series; again, we’re busier than we’ve ever been.
Thanks for your patience and keep tuning in as we prepare to defy the will of God and continue giving you our best in dark-witted soccer analysis. We aren’t going anywhere, and likely will just keep doing this until we are called to that infinite stoppage time that awaits us all.
