I'll eventually jump back in the loop...

The more I read other boxing sites and blogs just to keep up with what's going on, the more I realize that I am just totally out of the loop. The fact is, I've always maintained the position that you shouldn't write about a fight unless you've actually seen it. And these days, with no premium channels on my TV, I don't see much at all. There's occasionally a decent bout on Friday Night Fights on ESPN, but those fights are never close to the marquee fights you get on HBO, Showtime, and PPV.

That said, I think I'm just going to continue on this somewhat extended break, until I can get to a place where plunking down fifty bucks to watch a fight on PPV, or adding an extra $25 a month in premium channels to my budget is do-able. I'll also admit that I've become rather caught up in my obsessive love of the NY Mets (they are, after all, having a very good year). I guess we all have to have our priorities. Which isn't to say that I'm leaving boxingfan forever. It's just that my posting will be sporadic at best. Like it has been for most of the year.

As an aside, I think it's pitiful that for most of the year, I've been dreading the day when Wladimir Klitschko finally has a decent fight (or actually, any fight at all) and I can't watch it because I can't afford to. I can't believe I'm still waiting.
