Greetings fellow BGNers,
I have been floating around this site for about a year now, and I think I'm ready to become a contributing member of the community!! ( yes I'm sure you all couldn't care less ) But I feel that after being around this site for a fair amount of time that I have gotten a pretty good grasp of what it is that you expect of a contributing member. I have had my own " this shit should be a fan shot " experience a while back, and since then you guys have taught me a lot. A little about myself after the jump.
My Eagles fanhood began at the start of the 2004 Super Bowl season, and I have been addicted ever since. I have been through many highs and lows, such as the Euphoria prior to the season, which was subsequently followed by the dreadful happening that has been weeks 2 through 5 (Unfortunately in being faithful to a fault I'm convinced that the Eagles can still take some big steps towards glory by the end of this year.) But I digress. I have never played organized football, all though I regret it. My mom bastardized football when i was young, so I got a pretty late start at 12, and for some reason I never played despite my dad being a big football player himself. I don't really have a great grasp of the X's and O's of football, mostly because I never played, and I am fully aware that I still have much to learn. I am currently majoring in communications in hopes of someday becoming a sports broadcaster/journalist. Now despite being into Journalism I have been really pressed for time since beginning college, and will unfortunately not be able to write 20 page fan posts, however i will do my best to consistently weigh in on discussions. So please don't expect the world of me haha
I never realized how little I knew about football until I started reading the posts on this site, and you all have greatly influenced the growth of my passion for the game. I am very grateful for all that you have taught me. So thanks guys. I'm sorry that this post is so short, I'm pretty jammed up with homework tonight. But i'm excited to begin weighing in on future discussions/debates and to bring positive contributions and unique perspective. Cheers BGN, this is going to be an awesome ride.
