I don’t know if it came with the start of NBA free agency or if it’s been there for longer, but I’ve felt pushed in a certain direction lately. It’s stirred something in me to develop more from the sports writing standpoint, especially because there is an abundance of stupidity to be read out there (cougheverythingonESPNcough). And I feel like I wanna combat the stupid.
This drive isn’t so much coming from increased blog traffic or reader comments (since neither exist), but from face to face interactions with people that I know who tell me how much they enjoy the Twitter commentary or looked forward to sports-specific blog posts in response to something that happened. And I’m not talking about close friends, but surprising sources of encouragement that lead me to believe there could be more out there that I’ve not heard about.
So I’m trying to figure out what this means. The simple answer would probably mean a different or additional blog. I’m not sure yet.
I’d also have to determine what the focus would be. The NBA? The Bulls? Chicago sports? I’m leaning more towards basketball right now, but want to keep an open mind.
In other words…help.
(if the picture and title of this blog made you think I was feeling pushed to play more basketball, well that’s true too)
