Today is a day that will live in infamy...

My friends, it is a sad day in newtdom. 

Yours truly has lost the grand battle, to that lowest-of-the-low, kermit the frog wannabe.  Now, I could be petty and mean, and blame you all for not voting for me enough... which sounds like it could be a lot of fun. 

But I'm not gonna do that.  Instead, I'll be the better newt, and congratulate Trinity on winning the contest through his probably-underhanded means.  I'm pretty sure he cheated.  Or bribed the judges.  Or, um, something.

Work with me here, people.  Somehow, I am not to blame for my failure, which isn't really a failure, but is instead some sort of valiant effort.  You know... like in all those movies where the good guy loses heroically in the end?  Like how in Rocky, when Rocky Balboa loses the fight, but learns a valuable life lesson?  Or some of those other "lovable loser" movies.  Like... Saving Private Ryan... or Braveheart... or Jurassic Park (those poor raptors!)

So, there it is.  Take a long look at the banner ad if you're reading this, because it'll be going away for a little while now.  Because, for the next couple of months, this page will be Crazy Thoughts From a Crazy Newt Steve.  I'm working on the new banner ad today, and it should be up soon.

In all seriousness, though, it was a fun competition.  And maybe Trinity will offer a rematch next year or something.  Who knows?  Maybe next time, we'll round up some more newt blogs, and have a Battle Royale. 

And as you all know, Rocky wins in the second movie. 


  1. My condolences to you, CrazySteve.
    Jeez, I'll have to gewt used to that...

  2. It was a Well fought battle and a pleasure. I think the real winners were the readers. Good job, Steve.
