The short introduction

Welcome to the SportsLink.

What the heck is the SportsLink?

Well, honestly, I’m not sure yet. I have a general idea of what I want it to be, but I guess you’ll judge if it hits the mark.

I want it to be your link to Inland Northwest sports – all Inland Northwest sports: preps, colleges, pros.

I want it to be fun – and funny.

I want it to be timely – and timeless.

I want it to be your first stop on your sports-orientated web journey each day.

I hope you’ll find …

- Up-to-date (as in “right-after-it-ends” coverage of all the Inland Northwest sporting events, from key Cougar football games to important Gonzaga basketball matchups to top prep battles.
- Commentary, analysis and opinion (OK, I know that’s redundant but it does sound better than just writing “uninformed bull”) about our local sports scene.
- Links to stories in other newspapers and websites, stories that relate to Inland Northwest sports.
- Other crud that comes to me – and stuff you might suggest.

The idea is to have a conversation every day, or as I called it when talking to one of the bosses, “sports radio with journalistic ethics.”

I’ll give you the stuff promised above and you can comment about it. I’ll call you names, belittle your opinion, make fun of your life, and you’ll apologize and send me presents – anyway, that’s how I see it working.

If you have had a chance to read the Prep Report blog that past couple years, you know most days I’m just trying to have fun. Some days I get serious. Whatever, I hope you enjoy it – every day.

So let’s get started …
