These Chapman ladies bid adieu to our old commenting system...or not

Most of ustedes have already noticed that we've switched our commenting system over from Livefyre to Facebook because...PROGRESS! All previous comments left over the years are safely stored away with the NSA, so don't you worry that all the fun you had over the years throwing non-sequitors at Moxley, Coker, and I are long gone.

Most of ustedes won't bat an eye at the change, given the Blue-and-White God is so ubiquitous in our lives. But we can't help but to shed a tear at the fact that truly anonymous comments will most likely not make the transition. In fact, some of our most loyal commenters--long hidden behind pseudonyms--are DEFINITELY not going to join in the fun for various reasons. So, in honor of those fanboys (and girls) who are probably not making the transition over, this listicle is for you.

HELL YA!

Whenever I accept an award or give a commencement speech, I always write down a speech instead of my usual off-the-cuff remarks out of respect to the institution at hand. But last night at the OC Press Club awards gala, where I was being honored with the Sky Dunlap Award for lifetime achievement, my speech got lost between the bar and the bar. So what I REALLY said last night will be lost to history, although the themes don't vary much from the text of my original speech, which is published below.
