Boi from Troy, R.I.P.

One of the old-time Los Angeles bloggers, Boi from Troy, has typed his final entry. There, anyway.

In more than five years since this blog started, more than 3.5 million people have visited BoiFromTroy–for some reason or another. And to each and every one of you, I want to send my appreciation, as I bid this blog farewell.

Over those five years, BoiFromTroy has been a unique experience–bringing together a unique mixture of folks–gay and straight, Democrat and Republican, sports fans and those not athletically-inclined. It became a part of my identity to many people.

I loved this blog…but sometimes relationships just run their course, for better or worse.

BFT's classic intro: "The BoiFromTroy is a 6'1", 169 lb., 33 year-old, gay male, Republican, sports fan living in West Hollywood, California who has been writing on Politics, The Gays and USC Football since 2003." Scott still contributes to Spot-On.
