funny new website

hey everyone... i'm gonna be writing for a new Onion-style sports parody site based in baltimore called SportsCrab. please check it out and spread the word.

here's the first one i did, about Pacman Jones signing with Cincy:
Pacman Looks Foward to 3rd Strike With Bengals : Sports Crab

next one will be about how Vinny Cerrato wishes he still had a job so he could sign JaMarcus Russell....

thanks.

Re: funny new website

While Jones might be switching teams and zip codes for the 2nd time in his career, he’s also looking to make another change. “I’m not really pushin’ the ‘Pacman’ nickname any more. I just wanna be Adam. Y’know, like the original man Adam. That dude was a bad ass. He woke up in the middle of nowhere, was the only person around. Eden sounds nice, but it musta been boring. Like worse than Cincinnati. So dude just ripped his own rib out like BAM! He made himself a fine woman outta that rib and then it was on. Then I think on the next day he made it rain.”

Re: funny new website

why name it sportscrab and post it as being baltimore-based when the articles/coverage really doesn't give off that vibe? I mean there's a considerable amount of local stuff.. is it basically most will be local (like the O's loss article) and then just the bigger national stories will be covered?

yea, i'm not the founder/namer but i sorta agree. i guess he did a test launch last fall and had some success and it seems his goal is to grow it locally/regionally with the idea that the national success would follow it. i think his origial ideal was to have mostly local angles and/or make fun of rivals but i think it could and should think bigger than that.

i could see a need (possibly soon) to change that tagline on the site about "baltimore's...." and i'll probably change my sig as well.

thanks.
yea SportsCrab as a name itself can just a be a subtle hint at its baltimore origins if/when it were to get more popular/national.

but i'm gonna mention your point about the Baltimore tagline cuz it's a good one. thanks.
