Readers of Over the Monster,
I would like to announce something that's been brewing for awhile but officially launched today: SBNation has partnered with Yahoo! Sports:
As members of our communities or readers of our sites, you already know that SB Nation takes a different approach to online sports. Our focus has always been on empowering fans to participate in conversations that are specific to their particular teams, leagues or sports. We’ve watched over the years as the popularity of this unique approach has rapidly accelerated.
Today we want to welcome some new members to our flourishing communities. SB Nation and our friends at Yahoo are partnering to give Yahoo Sports audiences one click access to our sites and content. In addition to being the largest sport property on the web, Yahoo Sports is known for some of the best general sports blogs including: Ball Don’t Lie, Puck Daddy, Dr. Saturday, Big League Stew and others.
What does this mean? It means you will see OTM content on Yahoo! pages. For example, if you head over to the Red Sox page you will see this if you scroll down just a little bit:
You'll also see OTM content on other pages like when games are actually in progress. We won't really see the full extent of OTM on Yahoo! until the regular season starts.
Here's your bottom line: this is a great thing for Over The Monster, SBNation, Yahoo and, especially, you -- the readers.
I feel like this is a great time to just thank all the readers that have spent time on OTM. You are the ones that make this the great place that it is. You are the ones that are pushing OTM beyond my realm of expectations. I have been blogging about the Red Sox since early 2004 and this is, without a doubt, the best time I've ever had.
Thank you to everyone.
If you have any questions, pose them in the comments section and I will try my best to answer them. And if you are coming here from Yahoo!, then I hope you stick around, register a name and enjoy your stay.
