Welcome Home!

February 27, 2008

Welcome to the next generation in the progression of the LVC dynasty!

As opposed to a shitty facebook group, this year all updates, rosters, standings, statistics, scouting and game reports will be posted here, at the new e-home of the Lakeview Crew. I recommend that all team members sign up for a wordpress account (it literally only takes 5 seconds) so as they may comment on discussions, make updates and give input. Hek, blogs are kind of fun (in a weird “work and reward” way) so really, give it a go… just be careful you don’t post about any unmentionables. I know White Wolf surf’s the blogs relentlessly and he more-than-likely will rag on you for it… before, after and during your medicine ball workout. The nice thing about this format is that we can now post pictures and videos along with our updates (or whatever demands it). I already have a few volunteers who said they wouldn’t mind snapping a few pics during games for a little fun with the game reports.

Finally, there are a few things we have to get on top of in the most democratic way possible.

1) Jerseys- Let’s try to pull an “Olympic” style vote off pretty soon (good suggestion… Owen?) , so I’ll set up an area to vote in the next day or so.

2) Sponsors- Well, I’ve just discovered the BSHL has its own website this year. That’s actually ridiculously cool, but at the same time, gives me the feeling that, perhaps, league fees may be up in the $20+ range again. I apologize, but you know how it is, I don’t make the rules… that info will be available March 1st (team registration opens). I’d love if everyone could get a sponsor or contribute something this year to the team fund (first priority is jerseys, then vote from there on in…)

3) Camping Trip- This is GOING TO HAPPEN. I’m talking to everyone right now trying to find the absolute most convenient time to meet everybody’s needs. I guarantee a tremendously good time. It’s currently looking like it may take place around the 20th of April, and will most likely be to Algonquin for 2-3 days max. including a portage. The cost will be minimum as we already have tents available to us.

4) Team Picture- This just has to happen this year. I’m thinking some kind of whirlwind involving white t-shirts, suspenders, mustaches and medicine balls. Matt has suggested one photographer and I know a pretty French girl who’s available if that fall’s through. Ideally, this would take place prior to the end of April as well. I’m not against asap though.

5) Babe/Dude of the week- A new hot chick and/or normal looking dude every week along with why they exemplify the values that LVC hold dear. For the most part, this will just be a ridiculously cute girl every week to keep people checking-in… but we’ll probably get creeping on spectators too and have a good time with it. This will be listed under “weekly”.

6) Play of the week- So obviously self-explanatory.

Alright guys, shoot off a comment if you got through all that crap without falling asleep. I know some will say “excessive!” with their fist in the air like a Cuban dictator, but what the fuck, I have a blast doing this and it’s got to make everything a bit more… more… engrossing.

Consider this your clubhouse.
