I suppose I’ve chosen the former. I’m blogging.
It would be impossible to cite the specific reason I’m here or the particular event that drove me to launch No Crying in Baseball. I’m just a 23 year old guy with a lot of opinions who decided to start writing them down somewhere.
I don’t know whether anyone will read the words I will write here. It’s not clear to me whether anyone should read the words I will write here. I figure that the internet is already full of people who speak a lot without having anything to say so what’s one more, right?
People are going to be curious about the name, so let me be clear that No Crying in Baseball is not just a baseball blog. It’s ostensibly a sports blog, but I imagine it more like a lifestyle blog for people who like sports. I will evaluate that description constantly and revise it as necessary–it would be a grave mistake to handcuff the site today by giving it too narrow a focus.
The name does have meaning and we’ll explore that in the future–along with a whole host of other topics. No subject will be off limits, but we’ll shy away from directly opining on the political topics of the day. Republicans read lifestyle blogs for people who like sports too, after all.
I have already darted in and out of using the pronouns “I” and “we,” so let me assure you that that the site only has one author. I won’t say much about myself yet. Just to get ready cause you never met a motherfucker quite like me.
And, with that, No Crying in Baseball was born.
