After taking a look at everything they do and what the wider Fansided Network did, I decided hey why not see if they like the random musings that I've done for our tailgate the past few years? Sure enough, they did and offered to have me come join them at 12th Man Rising. While I'm not quitting my day job and moving to the islands (it's an unpaid position at this point) it was still a pretty cool honor.
However, as with most things in life, there is a small catch. I will have to end my contributions to our Hawkstrong website as they want to be the exclusive home to the rumbling, bumbling, stumbling tomfoolery and ballyhoo that I pour forth. Rest assured, the targets of my written arrows will not change. The Niners and their river of human debris they call fans will still be skewered. We'll still make fun of Hank Williams Jr. on Monday night games. ESPN will definitely remain a consistent target. Plus, I'm sure I can come up with others that are just begging to be made an example of. So, come on over with me to 12thmanrising.com for not only my semi-coherent thoughts, but also to get some great additional analysis from their stable of writers.
Oh, and just so it's clear, this changes nothing for me as far as the tailgate goes. I've still got my season tickets and I'll still be there every Sunday tending bar and slinging chicken wings. Thanks to all of you for reading this the last couple years and making this something that's truly been a lot of fun to put together.
