Celebrating last-place finishes at the Olympics. Because they're there, and you're not.

DFL on Hiatus

I'm sorry to announce that I will not be blogging the 2010 Winter Olympics on DFL.

For the most part, however, I've already said what needs saying about how hard athletes have to work to make it to the Olympics, and how good you have to be to finish even in last place at the Games. If I do say so myself, there are some awfully good entries in DFL's archives. You could do worse than reread some of them. (See the sidebar for some featured entries and archived entries by date.)

Thank you for your interest in this site, and in the gutsy athletes who finish at the back of the pack -- but still finish.

    Oh, no! I was really looking forward to reading your 2010 posts! Quite the bummer.

    Thanks for DFL. I will make an effort to check the standings and salute the DFLers on my own.

    Thanks for the work you have put in, I will also miss the site this winter. Hope all is well up there and nothing is keeping you from working on this project.

    Thanks for the thoughtful comments and analysis of the past games. I was looking forward to this year's edition.

    Wishing you all the best.

    I truly regret missing out on your 2010 comments - I've been here for all the last ones. Heck, I had a cousin who nearly featured. :)

    Best wishes for 2010 and hope to see you in 2012!

    You're freakin' famous now!!!

    I wish you would update this year's Olympics.

    I understand it's a lot. However, I'm a loser (in real life) and I want to know who my company is.

    I'm sorry to have to disappoint you all, but my reasons for not doing it this year are quite legitimate -- and quite personal.

    Thank you all for your kind comments.
