Four DBD's and several green recs ago our blogfathers brought forth on SB Nation a new site, conceived in sturdiness, and dedicated to the proposition that all Bears, except the dickless ones, are created equal.
Now that we have won the great color rec war, testing whether that SB Nation, or any sports nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met in the great internet of that rec war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that world wide web, as a final posting place for those who here gave their recs that that Golden Blogs might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.
But, in a larger sense, we can dedicate, we can consecrate, we can hallow this site with the golden rec. The brave CGBers, living and banned, who comment here, have consecrated it, far above our poor green rec power to add or detract the golden rec. The world wide web will note and long remember what we post here, but it can never forget the color of our golden recs. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who rec'd here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task bravely behind us—that from these honored and banned we take increased devotion to that cause for which they give the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these banned shall not have been banned in vain—that this nation, under CGB, shall have a new birth of golden recs—and that SB Nation of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the internet.
