    Say it aint so Joe (FJM)!!!!!!!!!!!

    Truly sad news:

    Hello, everyone.

    After 21 years, and almost 40 million posts (we'll have to check those numbers, but it's something like that), we have decided to bring FJM to an end.

    Although we have not lost our borderline-sociopathic joy for meticulously criticizing bad sports journalism, the realities of our professional and personal lives make FJM a time/work luxury we can no longer afford.

    We started this site with two purposes: to make each other laugh, and to aid and abet the Presidential campaign of Bob Barr. Although we failed in the latter goal, we gleefully succeeded in the first, and thanks to a grassroots internetty word-of-mouth kind of a deal, we appear to have positively affected the lives of actual citizens as well, which astonishes and delights us to this day. We really never thought FJM would be for anyone but us. We are thrilled and kind of humbled to have been proven wrong.

    We thank all of you for the kind emails, and the tips, and the support. To each and every person who ever contacted us: hat tip to you.

    Perhaps the future holds another project for us on which to waste massive amounts of time. For now, we will leave the site and the archives up as a testament to the fact that if you work hard enough, and blow off enough social occasions, and stare at the internet enough, and get nerdy enough, and repeatedly ignore entreaties from your friends and loved ones to please God stop blogging about Bill Plaschke and get out of the house it's a beautiful day!, then you, too, can...have a blog.

    Again, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you. And as Joe Morgan himself might say:

    "I really haven't seen them play...slidepiece...Dave Concepcion."

    Love,

    dak, Junior, and Ken
    Some commentary:

    The authors of Fire Joe Morgan (who also are script writers for television) announced yesterday that they are calling it quits on their highly successful blog.

    Over the past few years Ken Tremendous, Dak, and Junior have done a fantastic job of exposing and criticizing bad sports journalism in a highly entertaining fashion. Some of the Joe chats were hysterical and I'll never forget the legendary 'food metaphor' label. Fittingly, they decided to end the blog around the same time Joe Morgan will no longer do Sunday Night Baseball for ESPN. Ironic timing, to say the least.
    "This isnít stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner

    "But I do know Joey's sister indirectly (or foster sister) and I have heard stories of Joey being into shopping, designer wear, fancy coffees, and pedicures."
