This is Banshee Blog

"If you're a fan, what you'll see in the next couple of minutes, hours and days to follow may convince you that you have gone to sports heaven."

Okay, that's an overstatement.  Those are the first words uttered on ESPN when it came on the air in 1979.  If you knew that, then this blog will be right up your alley.  If you are thinking, "who would even want to know that?" then this blog is still up your alley.  This blog is not going to be a place to read in-depth disections of the Cover 2.  If you want to hear about that, tune into NFL 32 at 6:00 p.m. on ESPN2.  I am not saying that I could not converse on that level, but that is not the purpose of this blog.

I love sports.  I have always loved sports.  I grew up in a place where nothing was more important than what happened under the lights on Friday nights.  It was a place where the answer to the question, "What is your favorite sport?" was always answered with, "Whatever is in season."  I love the action on the field.  I love the business aspect.  I love the atmosphere around sports.  And, I love the food and drinks that are a part of watching sports.  The purpose of this blog is to share the love of all those things with the readers.

Enjoy!  And, if you do, please spread the word.  It's gonna be a work in progress, but if you stick with it, we're gonna have some fun.
