Here I am again, saying hello to the Fan Nation folks. One of the things I forgot to mention about the new website is how friendly it is for fans of every age. I don't know what kind of fan you are, whether its a fan who loves the current players of sports and cheer them on, or the kind of fan who longs for the older days of the Brett's, Ripken Jr...or Fouts and Montana. This is my generation.
But one fun thing about sports, is that the games affect everyone for their life. I'd love to read blog posts from fans who talk about the game further back. The days of Bob Gibson, Archie Manning, a rookie Kareem Abdul Jabbar. These are the voice I love to hear...and sports is such a universal language, you can easily strike up a conversation with someone much older than you and talk about their memories.
Diehard101.com is much like MySpace, but its so much more. If you have a MySpace, could you imagine your dad on it? Imagine your grandfather leaving comments. Ick, right? But that's the beauty of Diehard101.com is that it's going to be perfectly normal to have a profile at their ages. We welcome that. You know how to design a MySpace? Why not get your older relatives to sign up with you and teach them how to design their page to represent their players or teams from their generation.
Anyways, on to the challenge. This blog is meant to basically be a more formal hello to you, the Fan Nation members, and to tell you we appreciate the support you guys have shown us since Day 1. What would be fun is to see your profiles, and show them to other Fan Nation'ers. So in the comments, if you have signed up with our site, post the link to your profile in my comments here, as I would love to see your creativity, and I am sure other fans here will love it as well.
Tomorrow, I will announce whose profile is the sharpest (mine sure isn't, but I love the comic book Joker). Now off you go and remember, we don't want you to leave Fan Nation...we just want you to expand your circle of friends and talk sports.
Let's see your creativity, and tell your friends, relatives, older relatives, co-workers, former college classmates, doctor, the guy at the DMV, even your dog. We'd love to have them with us too.
