This seems an appropriate time to announce that I am not seeking election.
I've been a member of Sports.SE since day 1, and had the privilege and responsibility of serving as a moderator since the first set were appointed back in early 2012.
It was generally understood at the time that pro-tem moderatorship on a Stack Exchange site was a temporary thing, rarely lasting more than a year. I had in fact already served on English.SE from beginning until the site's graduation, which took a mere 7 months.
So my serving here for 8 years (!) is something of an accident.
I haven't been able to spend much time on the site for quite a while now, only jumping on to clear the moderation queue once in a blue moon. And I haven't really been keeping track of Meta at all.
I've appreciated the energy that first edmastermind29 and now Philip Kendall have shown as fellow moderators. And I was going to credit Philip with moderating for about a year, when in fact he's been going at it since 2017, which shows that I am not paying the site nearly the attention it deserves and needs. Sorry Philip!
I wish the elected moderators all the best. I'll still be around, and if American sports come back, I hope to join the March Madness bracket challenge once again next year.
