Thanks, everyone, for the well wishes and questions about the blog. By now you've probably heard the rumors, and they're true. I'm leaving The Oakland Press. I'll still be in local sports and you'll still be able to read my reporting on this wonderful internet thing, but for now I'm off the Lions beat and turning this site back over to the paper.
I appreciate everyone reading and all the interaction we've had. I know you're all passionate about the Lions. Hopefully you're loyalty will be rewarded.
You can always follow me on Twitter @davebirkett and for the time being you can reach me by e-mail at email@example.com.
