They announced the results of the “Replace the KB” blogging competition yesterday and unfortunately I was not chosen as one of the 4 winners (see the announcement of the winners here).

To everyone who’s supported me: I am so grateful for your encouragement, support and advocacy over the past 4 weeks.  You’ve had to endure a half-dozen emails (sometimes from out of town and/or at weird times of the night/morning), numerous texts, and countless Facebook updates.

Whether you read or watched every single thing I posted or you blindly just gave me a thumbs up without even reading a word, I thank you with all of my heart.  Along with the 4 chosen winners, I think the real winners are the hockey fans of Vancouver as they were exposed to the good work of a new wave of bloggers.  Sounds so cliché but it’s true.  Well, it’s my story at least and I’m sticking to it!  And it’s a lot better than accusing The Province editors of racism…haha.

I’m especially thankful for those who took time out to either appear in a video and in essence steal the show (Marie and Gene), do some masterful photoshopping (Chris) or send me song suggestions for my goal songs post (Mike, Jason, Jon, Dave, Joseph, Patrick and Richard).  Obviously, I couldn’t have done it without you!

I will continue to write a regular column for Canucks Hockey Blog (www.canuckshockeyblog.com) and continue to do the Clay’s Canucks Commentary video blogs for my own site here.

Once again, thanks for your love and support.  I’m blessed to have family and friends like you!

God bless and go Canucks go!
