We launched last Tuesday, September 14, 2010, so we've been at this for a week. I have a player profile, media on the Frank Klopas golf outing, and some other stuff in 'draft mode' but I thought I would take a second to see what you the readers would like to see. So far we have a couple of good links and good conversations going like the following:
Welcome, September 14, 2010
Meet Julian Posada, September 16, 2010
These Things Take Time, September 19, 2010
The Case for Jay DeMerit, September 20, 2010
But what do you want to see in the future? Is there anything most soccer blogs miss? Is there an investigation I should start... maybe best to send those E-mails to HotTimeInOldTown@gmail.com. Anyway, more after the jump...
Right now I'm positive there will be a 'Soccer Media Tuesday/Wednesday'. I'll highlight a recent book, movie, or perhaps a compelling issues in another soccer league. This could range from 'Green Street Hooligans', 'How Soccer Explains the World', or Russia's decision to change to a winter schedule for their top league (BTW seriously? You think Chicago is cold in the winter....). If you have a review for something, I'll consider kicking it up to the Front Page. If you have something you would like me to check out, drop me a line and I'll look into it. You could have a lot of fun with this - like make me watch Goal 3. I'd do it just for you readers... or at least do my very best to summarize it from other reviews but I swear I would at the very least fast forward the entire movie. I'll start doing that once a week, keep up with the game threads, game previews, MLS roundups and all that other stuff but let this be dynamic. There is no need for a full structure. I think blogging in general is a little stale. Maybe we'll hit something new. Your discussions on the sad state of soccer media or how you loved Goal 3 and Green Street Hooligans 2 await.
