First off, I'm undertaking this with some trepidation. I'm not at all sure I'm cool enough to blog. I'm 52 years old. I don't watch American Idol, or any "reality" TV. My "snark" quotient, like my hair, might be thinning. My witty pop culture references might be dated; I still haven't quite figured out what "rick-rolling" is. And I'm pretty sure I don't care.
But I do know there is an insatiable appetite, in this market, for anything that concerns the Eagles, even indirectly, and that's what this blog is all about. My voice certainly won't be the only one from the Daily News on here, which is good. I can't speak for anybody else, but my hope is to entertain, to give a deeper, broader context, and to facilitate dialogue.
I've been reading a lot of blogs, and a lot about blogs, to get ready. From what I can gather, there is an expectation that the blogger be sitting in his mother's basement, blogging in his pajamas. This is problematic; my mother's basement is more than 500 miles away, in North Carolina , and it's damp there this time of year.
I'll probably either be at my desk in the kitchen of my home in South Jersey , at NovaCare when something is going on there, or at the Linc, of course, for games. But when I'm blogging from home I will try to do it in my Spongebob boxer shorts, just to "capture the spirit of the thing," as Dickie Dunn might say. (Kiddies, Google a movie called "Slap Shot.")
