I apologize for the site being down this weekend. It looks like we were targeted in a malware attack that brought the entire site down. It would certainly explain why the site was getting blocked by work filters lately. I appreciate you folks reaching out to me to let me know that the site was getting blocked recently.
I don’t know what caused it, but I do know we were specifically targeted, as this was an isolated incident to just this site, and not a larger scale issue across multiple sites on the same hosting platform. That is rather frustrating. It also came at a bad time, as I was traveling when the site crashed and had limited resources to be able to fix it. Naturally, I had to shell out a decent chunk of change to get it fixed. But that comes with the territory of owning my own site, and not having a bigger content hoarder site like SBNation at the helm.
We lost a week’s worth of content, including my 1,000 word post on Glen Sather and his impact. I can’t sum it up in one tweet, but this one seemed to work:
After writing 1,000 words on Glen Sather, his tenure, and his impact on the Rangers, I am left with one thought that all can agree upon.
Thank you, Glen, for preventing the Rangers from becoming the Knicks. You had Dolan's ear, and you ensured that fiasco would not be for NYR.

This was very frustrating to deal with, and I thank you all for your patience while I worked to get this site back up. We will be back with regularly scheduled content tomorrow."And we are back",
