Sports category request
« on: August 23, 2006, 09:46:38 PM »
I'm a big sports nut, and would LOVE for Astorians.com to have a category (or even a subcategory) just devoted to sports.  Right now the Mets and Yanks are in first place, fantasy football is starting up, and we just went through one of the most entertaining world cups ever.  I'm sure other sports-minded guys and gals would love to have a section devoted purely to this topic where they can celebrate (or cry) about their fave teams (local or otherwise)

It can also be used to set up games among the community (softball, ultimate frisbee, touch football, heck even poker, bowling, or darts)

Thanks!
-Rob

I'm keeping an eye on this thread. If there's continued interest (among others) we may add it.

Sounds like it could be cool.

I'm also curious as to whether or not there's a way to include sports but broaden the topic a bit.

Like what else goes with sports?

Sports & Games, Gaming -- including WoW, football, poker, frisbee, running

I think just sports might be a little too narrow.  But I'm also not a sports geek.

I know I've been wanting a place to discuss IFOCE events Meg but alas, there's no category for it so I've just been holding it in. :)

Meg, I think that is the only place that one can find hot dogs called a "discipline."

I like Rob's suggestions for a sports category.  I think it would be cool to have a special category to talk about our hometown NY teams and sports in general.   :lol:

yes, sports and games would be fine too (although since poker is on espn I assume it now qualifies as a sport  :-) .  running and frisbee are certainly sports as well.  what is WoW?
