What's This Blog All About?
I was thinking about this on the way home from work this evening. If this blog has had any central theme, it's about heroes, and I use the term somewhat loosely. Sometimes I'm talking about real heroes like Brian Chontosh or Pat Tillman and sometimes I'm talking about sports "heroes" and sometimes I'm talking about superheroes like Batman (yes, I know he's not "super") and the Flash. I got some attention in the blogosphere on the Pat Tillman issue, particularly for the Ted Rall Unemployment Project, but it was just an oddball synthesis of four things I talk about constantly on this blog--sports, comics, politics and the war.
I will probably be covering the war a little less, although I will try to continue to find good stories of the heroes in uniform. Blackfive
and Marine Corps Moms
do a great job.
I'll continue the Greatest Player in the History of Every Team series later tonight. I haven't decided about doing other sports than baseball. I'm really only qualified at that and football, and football I suspect I'd just end up picking the best quarterbacks of all time for each franchise.
I'll probably start doing more posts on comic books, although it will be mostly comic book history. I have been reading a lot of the very old Batman stories lately thanks to abpc, to the point where I feel like more of an expert on the subject.
