The crayon goes everywhere
True Hoop's momentous one-year anniversary (congrats from all of us here on the boat!!!!!) got me thinking about the evolution of a blog over time. In general, at first, before ending up as a consideration of how the comments on FreeDarko have changed.
Once, there were none. Then, slowly but surely, a few fine souls began showing up to speak on the topic at hand. Eventually, there were more people doing this, and soon a new post became an occasion for an open-ended discussion of whatever. By the time these playoffs rolled around, the conversation would often rage regardless of what we FreeDarko commanders did or didn't do/say/press.
I can't help but notice that no one has a thing to say about a weekend's worth of supposedly important action. Meaning that:
1) We have been displaced by some entity as of yet unknown to me, which would totally fucking suck.
2) I am utterly, celestially right in insisting that there's nothing to see in this round.
3) Everyone's got alter ego's that they employ when it comes time to talk about sports for real, like at least one of our esteemed contributors.
I AM NOT TALKING ABOUT MYSELF. I AM DISCUSSING THE COMMUNITY WE HAVE BUILT TOGETHER AND THE CONDITIONS THAT MUST PREVAIL FOR US TO EVER BE FREE AGAIN.
