A s I decided to contribute another post to my blog a few moments ago, it dawned on me that for a man who used to internally mock anyone over 18 that spent time in online communities like Facebook and My Space, I'm sure logged into this community a lot. Sure, Active.com may be a much cooler place to be than the aforementioned web spaces, but it's an online community nonetheless. Hmm....let's just say that the hand that I'm not using to type is holding a large shoe that I just removed from my mouth. See, I'm not afraid to admit when I'm wrong. Well, it's not my favorite pastime, but I'll do it every now and again just to say I do it. Just kidding. Or maybe I'm not.
Anyhow, the new Active.com is pretty sweet. Not that the old "bubble" landing page wasn't great, in 1977, but "A2" is in its own league. It looks nice, has lot's of great content and functionality and best of all, everything on it is based around sports and the people who love to participate in them. Sort of like ESPN.com with more of a community feel to it. Well, maybe I'll stop short of the ESPN comparison. Active.com is more like ESPN.com for endurance athletes, which the mirror tells me I am not (anyone who has seen me in the past year will be nodding their head in agreement rather strongly when they read this. Ok, you can stop nodding now.). My self-given mission now, armed with the power of my almighty blog that millions of people are surely reading (more like 1, if I'm lucky),
is to get some team sports athletes to become members of the Active.com community, so I don't get run out of town, or just plain ignored, because I don't like endurance sports. Yes, I said it again and I'll say it one more time. I don't like endurance sports. So if you like team sports, any team sport will do at this early stage of my mission, make some noise with me. Reply to my blog posts. Create your own obnoxious blog. Do whatever you have to do to make yourself known. Let's represent and rebel against the establishment, er community, that is Active.com.
