Today will be the last post on Ed The Sports Fan, starting at 12:01 am tomorrow the launch of The Sports Fan Journal will begin. For Ken and I, this is the beginning of our evolution into something bigger, bigger than anything we initially thought when we first started blogging back on February 21, 2008...
Where would we be without evolution?
In a literal sense, the world might not exist and we as humans would still exist in the stage of a formative ape. (All the Alphas in the house chill for the present time, thanks)
In the current form with sports, we've seen evolution in many forms:
- To create more excitement in the game
- To provide more safety (thus providing prolonged opportunity) for the players
- To adapt to the preferences of media and the fans who support
- To improve gameplay and competition
In the initial phase, the process of growth can be a difficult one. Over time, folks who would complain about the change will inevitably be the biggest apostles for it. (Think Facebook) Evolution can be a necessary evil, but its keyword is that is in fact, necessary.
