It is with a very heavy heart that I must say goodbye to this blog. For over a year I have enjoyed writing about the Azzurri here, but more importantly, interacting with all of you. I had hoped to stay on longer, but SB Nation are unable/unwilling to offer even the most basic support in order to make that happen.
I have no idea what will happen to this blog, I’d love to tell you that it was just me, but I am certainly not the first blogger to leave because of the people at SB Nation, and I know I won’t be the last.
I had another blogger interested in taking over here, but unfortunately, I cannot set up their account, and my emails to SB Nation have gone unanswered. What a shame, with the Euros around the corner. Perhaps when the potential to make advertising money on this blog by switching over to the new SB Nation blogs is realized, they will change their practices. Or maybe not.
I would like to give a special thanks to Sam, who is ufortunately also unable to continue blogging at this time, and did me a huge personal favor by taking time out of his very busy schedule to write such fantastic posts here.
Anyway, I will definitely be watching every game in June and thinking of the friends I’ve мейд here. Thank you so much for putting up with my girliness and my ridiculousness and for making this blog such a fun place to be.
