Thank you to everyone who chimed in – regardless of your stance – on the OJ Houston issue yesterday. I know Operation Jack appreciates the support and I appreciate having badass & passionate readers. For the record, the purpose of the post was to clear any tarnish to the OJ name that may have come with the cancellation/relocating of the event and the unfavorable correspondence sent by HARRA. Ok and reiterate what an awesome cause it is. That’s all.
But let’s take a step away from the social media warfare and do something fun and completely unique…
RECAP THE YEAR! EVERYTHING I DID IN 2011!! Nobody else on the internet is doing this. I checked.
I hate to brag, (do you hate when people say that? like obviously i’m about to brag but want it to seem a little modest? dumb. i’m bragging.) but my 2011 was pretty awesome. There were some significantly sucky parts, but all-in-all, 2011 was definitely worth
writing home blogging about.
So here’s Part 1, aka,
