We love this blog and we love the A's. So much. But you may have noticed that not much has been happening here lately. We wanted to explain why and put up a note for those that might find our blog and wonder where we are. Some huge life changes have happened here at Oakland A's Days. Changes that have made it hard to keep up with the A's the way we used to. When we started this blog we were single girls in our twenties working as lawyers. We followed the A's back then with a dedication and devotion that now seems almost miraculous. Indeed, we marvel at how prolific we used to be, at how much we used to know, at how deeply we cared about the minutiae of the A's season. We treasure the memory of those days. When we knew what car Jim Mecir would drive out of the A's parking lot, Dan Johnson's batting average, and Travis Buck's favorite restaurant. It just isn't possible for us anymore. We love the A's as much as we ever have. But now one half of OAD is a new mom, raising a tiny A's fan. And the other half of OAD has moved to Miami, the land of the Marlins. We are both married, in our thirties, trying to start families and be grown ups. And that has changed how we relate to the A's and how we think about this blog. We see this blog as a loving and (we think) beautiful record of how we felt about the A's during a wonderful and unique period in our lives and in the history of the Oakland Athletics. And we hope it will be here as long as the internet. Accordingly, please peruse our archives, which amuse us to this day. New posts, however, probably won't happen on a regular basis, at least not for a while. Instead, we are going to wait until something strikes us, until the moment seems right. We are going to wait until we feel inspired like we used to. And then we will share those thoughts here with you. Please don't forget about us. Thank you for reading.
