Arenas Retires From Blogging

Your RRS reader just  shed a digital tear because Gilbert Arenas has told the media he’s hanging up his keyboard and will no longer blog. Bummer!

“I retired,” Arenas said in the home locker room before Washington’s game against Charlotte. “No more blogging for me.”

Really? Why not? “It’s just like the double-(edged) sword thing: Eventually your words is going to kill you,” Arenas said with a smile. Asked to explain his thoughts further, Arenas smiled.

“I started looking at it as, before, it was fun, and everybody has fun reading it. And then it’s like everything I said, everybody started using it as firepower, instead of saying it’s just entertainment. You know, people started using it, trying to take bits and pieces instead of enjoying the blog,” the three-time All-Star said. “So once I started seeing that, I just started visualizing, eventually, this is going to be the double-(edged) sword thing. It made me and it’s going to kill me, so I might as well stop.”

Say it ain’t so Gilbert? Maybe in the meantime, he’ll take up Twitter. 140 characters of Agent Zero at a time is better than nothing.
