Many people have mentioned that on Monday morning, the first thing they check is the Quote of the Week. Friends who don’t skate say that it is the only #content on the website that translates to them (wait the stuff about Kareem Campbell checking his pager isn’t #relevant to you?) The vast extended family of QS is what gives this website life. Even with all the laughs that happen on a given day, far too many them would end up being “you had to be there”-moments if we strained to recount them in written form. These are the ones that kinda sorta maybe hopefully translate.

We usually do these posts once every few years on the anniversary (September 12), but since this year was the ten, we had to run the retrospective video that day. Here they are for roughly mid-2013 to a week ago. Volume 1 is here and volume 2 here.
