Matt Glaude, who many of you may simply know as "HoyaSuxa," announced today that his popular blog of the same name has reached the end of its road.
Orange::44 was the original brainchild of the genius that is The Glaude. Without him, Brian and I would not have been able to carry on the tradition. So, we certainly owe a lot to him. We were, of course, excited when he decided to devote an entire blog to making fun of Georgetown, or, whatever it is that he did over at HoyaSuxa. I probably visited HoyaSuxa more that I did this blog (maybe because I knew when new content was here or not). But truth be told, Matt just has a way with words, a way to be funny by being simple, yet sophisticated. We'll miss the Daily Affirmations, the "... Is A Fine University," the self-depreciating bets, and the dossiers on the "Princeton-style Offense." Thankfully, Matt's knack at internet prose will not go untapped; he'll still be on twitter @HoyaSuxa, as well as writing for CollegeCrosse, your one-stop shop for all things college lacrosse.
To Matt, a very heart-felt thank you and best of luck from Brian and John at Orange::44. We'll continue to try our hardest to be even as good as you on a bad day.
And don't forget, he's a hell of a dancer:
