As Danny said earlier today, SBN is getting ready to launch their official YouTube Channel. This is not a small deal. It is a reasonably big deal for SBN and Sports Blogging in general. It's also a big deal for me, since I'll be your representative for the Field Gulls YouTube channel.
It's not as big of a deal as, let's say, war, but it's a big deal to us! We hope to one day be so big that Julian Assange will hack us and ruin us forever. That's when you know you've made it on the internet.
One website that apparently is doing well is called YouTube. Ever since Andy Samberg and Chris Parnell told us about a Lazy Sunday and The Chronic(what)cles of Narnia, this video site has done pretty well. It's hard to believe that was only five years ago. From Charlie biting a finger to Rebecca Black having a Friday, online video has overtaken popular culture and set the standard for what's popular and what's not.
I would prefer to be viral and make the Field Gulls channel the best of the network. I already know that the 12th Man brings it better than any other fanbase, so I am not worried about getting support and will hope to give you the best content possible. If all else fails, football in the groin will have a football in the groin.
After the jump, I'll explain how YOU can help ME help YOU help FIELD GULLS.
I have already got several ideas for running series that will be featured on the FieldGulls SBN YouTube channel. Think of my regular articles on FieldGulls and then put them into a visual format and you'll have some idea of the content I will have on a regular basis. (So, if all goes as planned, me and Kam Chancellor riding a tandem bicycle.)
But when I'm not playing catch with Pete Carroll or doing my off-Broadway one man show, there will be other segments that will definitely just be straight up talk about the state of the Seahawks. One of which will be a question and answer segment. I'll work on the answers but I need the questions!!!
Still, if you don't know me by now, you will not never ever know me. I would hope that over time eventually you will get to know me. And I can get to know you. But if you do know me by now, you know I don't like to do things in the typical cookie-cutter fashion. I want to do this with a little bit of edge. A little bit of style. A little bit of "What the hell is that guy doing?"
So I need two types of questions to start with:
- Just send in your questions about the Hawks. It can be anything related to the team, the draft, free agency, or any football-related questions.
- Send in advice questions that are not football-related. Something like a "Dear Abby" segment. They can be relationship advice or a tough decision you have to make. Anything is up for grabs. "What does this have to do with the Seahawks?" Trust me, I've got that plan sorted out!
