We Finally Got A...

It's true. It's official. We've "sold out." Advertisements are now a part of your Sports And The City experience.


Let me tell you, it wasn't about the best offer on the table. It was about the only offer on the table.

In all seriousness, I'm proud to announce that Sports And The City is the newest member of the Sports Federation, TheScore.com's new network of sports bloggers.

It's an honour. 

I mean, the first thing I did when I received the email from TheScore was run upstairs from the basement and tell my mom the good news. She was ecstatic.


You'll notice a new header at the top of the page, along with a drop down menu to the other sites in the Federation. Some of them we know very well - Ghostrunner on First, RaptorBlog, Down Goes Brown, and Drunk Jays Fans - and others you should get to know, much like I am. 

TheScore.com's venture is yet another example of the quality writing that exists out here on Al Gore's internet, and I'm excited to be a part of it. 

So, a big thank you goes out to TheScore for giving me the opportunity to spread my devout homerism. The more eyes over here, the better. And a big thank you also goes out to you, the reader, and to you, the commenter. Without you, I'd have probably packed up and left town a few months ago. You are appreciated, more than you'll ever know.

Remember, the content isn't going to change around here now that I've joined the Federation. So don't mind the ads. Just click on 'em.

Congrats and welcome to the dark side! Now you should extend your home team support to the U of T Varsity Blues, York Lions or Ryerson Rams as well so we're not the only Sports Federation blog talking about CIS sports!;)

Awesome news eyebleaf. No doubt The Score wanted you and DGB to go at it in regards to Sundin when/if he comes back.

@ Andrew: Thanks bro. And haven't I already filled my quotient of shitty teams I can support? I have only so much sanity left.

@ Neil: Much love, Boberty. Your stocking is going to have something nice in it.

@ Bkblades: Thanks dude. It's going to be epic when Mats comes back. Me and DGB in a steel cage ladder match for the title. Once and for all...

Again Congratulations!

The ads aren't the greatest thing in the world but it pays the bills. On your site, the top banner ad is fine but for some odd reason the ad above the "subscribe it up" just seems to be out of place or it's just too big.

But I guess it is effective since it caught my attention.
