Another Year Older

Standard
I’ve had some fun with my last two posts around this time the last two years.  Mainly I was using this opportunity to see what does a sports fan truly want for his birthday?  Also to gauge the reader. To get feedback on what I should or shouldn’t do going forward with this website.  I have to say that the one thing as a sports fan that I truly want for my birthday has always been the same. Family.
There have been a lot of things that have happened in the last two years that have put everything into perspective.  I won’t go into details, but suffice to say that it has made me a better person going forward.  Sure no one is perfect.  I’m not trying to tell you that I am.  All I’m saying is that I’m truly grateful for the time that is given and the time that is spent with those that I care about.
Thank you for continuing to check back when you can to see what is new on the website.  What’s in store for the future?  Well, I can say that with the NFL season back on track I will be previewing every team and giving my predictions on the upcoming season. Also during the season I will continue to provide a ‘Week In Review’ post after each week of games.
The website will go through some changes as well.  Cosmetic looks mostly.  Again I encourage you to leave some feedback. Something you want to see or something you don’t want to see. Please feel free to let your voice be heard.  I stress again that this isn’t just for myself.  The motto I have for this website is this; ‘A site run by a sports fan for the sports fans.’
Thank you all again from the bottom of my heart.  Take care and God bless.

My Birthday Gift to You

Standard

It has been one year since I wrote “A Birthday Wish for the Sports Fan” and I have to say that none of those wishes have come true, yet.  One wish that I can make come true is the beginning of something new and extraordinary to this site.  Starting this week you will begin to not just read what’s on the mind of Wes The Sports Guy, but actually listen to what he has to say on the wide world of sports.  That’s right, it is now possible for myself to be heard once again on the world wide web.

This is my gift to you, the loyal reader and listener from my previous spot at KLBC.ORG as co-host of “Talkin’ Sports with Wes & JR.”  My voice has returned.  If there is anything that you wish to see on the site, please leave some feedback.  If you want something taken off the site, leave some feedback.  I know you’re there.  Let your voice be heard.  No one is hear to judge.  This is a site not just for myself, but for the entire sports world.

You’re probably asking yourself, “why is there a picture of a football field?”  Well, I put it there to test yourself.  If you can name this field without zooming in at the scoreboard, you are like myself.  Someone who only needs a little information to come to the right answer.  I consider it a gift.  I can share knowledge with you and whether you use it or not, it makes me feel great that you’re checking in.

One last bonus gift to you the reader is the picture below.  It’s more for the slogan in the picture than the person.  But hey, it’s your gift.  Take it as you will.  Stay tuned for the first podcast.

A Birthday Wish for the Sports Fan

Standard


Just before you blow out the candles you make a wish. That wish could be for that ultimate gift. Whether it be for that new video game, toy or the simple one of what would a sports fan want to do? The possibilities are endless.

With the pennant races heating up in baseball, how about spending a day in the clubhouse of your favorite team. NFL training camps have started. Spend a week seeing everything the coaches see on the practice field as a coach. Sit in the broadcast booth with Vin Scully during a Dodgers game and see how it is done. Again the ideas are endless. Think real hard about your wish and get back to me. In the meantime I will be on vacation for a week, so I leave you with my sports fans’ birthday wish. No major headlines, controversies or funny stories until I get back. Keep thinking about that wish. It just might come true.
