First off, I'd like to thank Computer Junkies for sponsoring my Detroit Lions blog, Blue and Silver Pride.

Secondly, I'd like to tell the blog readers why I approached Computer Junkies to sponsor it. 

This blog is a hobby. However, thanks to all the loyal readers, it's become pretty popular. Now that I have extra time and better Lions connections through former Lions wide receiver Herman Moore, I'll be updating Blue and Silver Pride more frequently -- and with content other blogs might not have.

So, due to the popularity, I thought it wise to get a sponsor. Computer Junkies was a perfect fit. The Flint-based service shop isn't just a shop that doles out cash to be an advertiser on this blog. In fact, it probably doesn't need to advertise much; it has a great reputation in the Flint area and with online customers.

Eric Barclay and the rest of the staff never juked me around. I'm not the most computer-savvy guy around, and I was tired of shops taking advantage of that. I was being charged more than double by other shops for what Computer Junkies has done for me for little to no cost.

Yes, the guys have actually fixed my computer for free, well before joining the Blue and Silver Pride team. They've even worked with me when I was short on cash. They care about their customers, and that's why I've been a customer for over three years.

I refuse to take my machine anywhere else. Computer Junkies is fast, convenient and never charges me an arm and a leg.

I freelance for other sites, and I'll be doing radio with Moore in the near future -- post-game Lions coverage on WDFN 1130 AM. I also manage content on a recruiting site, www.scoutspy.com. I can't afford to have a slow computer. An unreliable machine costs me money, not to mention headaches.

The guys at Computer Junkies have always delivered. If they say my computer will be ready at 3 p.m. that same day, or at 9 a.m. the next -- it is. And sometimes it's even earlier than what they forecast.

I'd like readers to know that Computer Junkies isn't just a sponsor of this blog. Thanks to having a machine in tip-top condition, I've made a good living doing what I do. I credit my hard work, of course, but I also credit Computer Junkies' genuine interest in their customers. The guys know that a lot of make our livings doing things online.

Computer Junkies is the only shop I'd ever trust with my computer. I highly recommend them.

But don't take my word for it. Experience the Computer Junkies difference yourself. The guys are offering 50 percent off any service to Blue and Silver Pride readers. They'll even help you over the phone. If you're looking for a Matthew Stafford-to-Calvin Johnson-type hookup, Computer Junkies is the way to go.
