Sometimes ideas, the good, the bad, and the stupid can’t help when they decide to be born. The idea for Domain Roast burst into this overly-crowded world of dog bloggers, mommy bloggers, food bloggers, whoa-is-me bloggers, domain bloggers, etc. in September 2014 (although it’s actual birth was just a few days ago). I was at my day job perusing a Godaddy auction for a work related domain name when I stumbled upon schweddyballs.com and saw that it was an expiring name auction. It had been years since I’d seen this most hilarious SNL skit. I went to YouTube and watched it in all of its magical glory, then shared it with a younger co-worker who’d never seen it. She cried from laughing so hard.
Hopefully, Carolina Panthers linebacker and Super Bowl champ (when he was with the Giants), Chase Blackburn, saw my tweet today. Chase’s domain name, ChaseBlackburn.com, appears to have been registered by his agent, KMG Sports. Well, someone forgot to renew it. A few days ago I noticed that it was being auctioned off through Godaddy’s auction platform. Luckily, no one bid on it. Because of that, Godaddy then just set a “buy now” price, which currently is $9.00 (was $10.00 a few hours ago).
