If you're seeing this post, you probably found the hint of a sneak-preview of this new blog project buried in a post over at danshanoff.com. (Nicely done in finding it!)
There's not much here yet, but I'm writing new posts everyday, so I figured that DS.com readers, of anyone, should get the chance to see the posts fresh(-ish), rather than as part of a backlog of archived posts when I launch it next week officially.
No matter: Welcome! This blog is inspired by last year's arrival of my first kid and is dedicated to tracking the ups, downs, friction and folly of raising a sports fan. (Nine months old? Yeah, I'm starting early on him. But really, until he has develops some sort of "fan cognition" -- which probably won't be too long, given last weekend's development -- it'll be about figuring out what "raising a fan" even means.)
This blog is a work-in-progress -- and it will be for at least a little while. Feel free to email me any feedback at the email address to the right. I'll have an "official" "launch" next week, time/date still TBD. But this should be fun, and any of you who find it interesting or intriguing couldn't be more welcome.
