A fond farewell and a new era –
Things change. Sometimes for the good and sometimes not. We (Manish and myself) started this blog a few years ago as a means for turning our love into sports into an academic pursuit. Its been a lot of fun and and a lot of work. Its taken us into different ways of thinking and exposed us to a lot of interesting media.
But its come to an inflection point. Manish has decided to leave academia. Nothing wrong with that, but it does mean he needs to step off the platform. Its one thing for an academic to publish findings that insult Raiders or Duke Blue Devil fans. Its another for someone in the corporate world.
He is already missed. The best thing about this line of work was that it was fun and we had a shared purpose. We also did a lot of other stuff related like teach several sports courses here at Emory. We will have to see how all this evolves. at a minimum there will likely be far more spelling errors and typos. But fewer !!!!!
I won’t get too sentimental but its a huge loss. And I’m genuinely sad.
