Good afternoon children. I have a wonderful story to tell you about a little boy. This boy is a lot like me. Can you imagine me as a little boy? *Class shakes heads, boy with ADD yells YEAH!*
*Teacher laughs* I knew you wouldn't be able to think of that. But this is an astounding story. Now hush up, and listen to...
My Start on FanNation: by Jay Thomas
When Jay was just 18 years old, he was everything. He had it all. He was going to college for the University of Michigan and was very excited.
But on one bright May day, May 12, 2007, he was very, very bored. So he decided to look at a couple of his old Sports Illustrated magazines.
In one magazine he saw an advertisement for a website. It was called, "FanNation: The Republic of Sport."
So Jay, curious as usual, hopped onto his Mac laptop. He typed in the address.
Then he got started. He created an account, and "erwin" was born.
His first throwdown was against BirdsTakeBowl, and the topic was "Ultimate fighting is one of the fastest growing sports." Jay won. And so begins the legacy of erwin. He is still solidifying it today. His next milestone attempt is 50 wins.
*Teacher closes book* So, class, how did you think that story was? *Class yells, IT WAS GOOD!*
I'm glad you hope so, because that boy was me!
