So, what the fuck happened?
Well, for those of you who aren't techno nerds that understand URL domain registrar lingo, I'll put it this way: GoDaddy.com is a giant hunk of money-sucking shit. And I can safely say that because A.) I'm right and B.) they happily take my money. So fuck them with Danica Patrick's racing helmet.
Basically, we lost the domain FinsNation.com. And when I say "lost it," I don't mean in the sense that there was a glitch or a malfunction in the servers and we were blacked out. I mean that we literally lost it. Or, more to the point, GoDaddy lost it. And by "GoDaddy lost it", we mean they took our domain and sold it to another person.
And this person, incidentally, lives in the UK. So, for a while there, there was a very excellent chance you would've had to come here to read about the Dolphins with polite dick jokes and served tea and crumpets while making small talk about the Queen.
But, after some smooth negotiating with -- we'll call him Mr. F -- DRK and I got the domain back. And here we are. And we will never lose you again. Never again, you hear me?! NEVER AGAIN!
Please do not blame Mr. F in the comments. Dude is innocent here. This is all Danica's fault. She choked away our domain pretty much like she chokes away all her her races. And then she ran off in a hissy fit and blamed her fans.
Anyway... here's where you come in. Or not. It's really your choice.
AND here's where shit gets a bit delicate.
Bottom line... we need your help, Nation. DRK and I had to pay a pretty penny to get FinsNation.com back (ask us in the comments, and we'll let you know). We paid less than what Mr. F had to pay for it. But we paid. And we're asking for you all to help us recoup our losses. In the form of a donation. And we mean, whatever you can give. A dollar, five. Whatever you can find in your hearts to give, because what Jesus gives you in return is priceless.
Shitballs, this feels weird. And we're very sorry this happened. But we wanted to keep FinsNation going. And judging from all the e-mails and Facebook and Twitter comments, we see that we were missed and beloved. So now we're asking to show your love in the form of a check. HOLY GOAT TITS THIS FEELS AWKWARD. But it is what it is. We had no choice but to buy back the domain, and now we need your help. And in that way, this thing will really be OURS. Which means when DRK and I are slow to post, you can send us angry e-mails and say nasty things about our Moms because you're basically like our boss.
Anyway.... that's what happened.
What we've done is posted a donations page on the sidebar (top right of this here page) where you can help. It will be via Paypal. And we thank you in advance as well as apologize for this shit. Sorry.
Thanks for all the love.
(Update: See post above this one)
PS: DRK will be by shortly with an update on the tailgate festivities. MORE MONEY! YAY!!!!
