We Have A New (Soccer?) Website!
Image courtesy of Jeremy Olson of http://www.digitalgopher.net/Sports/Minnesota-United-FC/But the biggest reason is that we have a lot of brilliant soccer writers locally that should be heard. I’m not overstating this. Several have nationally recognized blogs that have drawn thousands of regular readers. They are passionate, obsessive, analytical and entertaining. Seriously, they’re so good they’re going to make you like soccer.
Jon Marthaler, who many of you know either from The Sportive Podcast or his satirical work at TwinkieTown or his SoccerCentric blog on the StarTribune.com, recognized the irony of these three facts. He has been bothering us for a couple of years to do something about it. At some point, it became less work to just appease him.
Or that’s that I tell him. The truth is that we do this because we love people who love stuff, and these guys love this stuff. I think there is a good chance that you’re going to love this stuff too, even if you’re determined not to. That’s a good thing. Finding stuff to love is life’s work.
So please swing by and let us know what you think about the new NorthernPitch.com. I think you’ll see why we felt it was important to add this to the MinnCentric sites. And maybe you’ll even fall in love.
