I've been talking about it for well over a month now and the move has finally happened. I couldn't be more excited as Big D Soccer has moved to SB Nation.
For those not familiar, SBN is a massive host of mostly team centric blogs for just about every possible major league team in the country as well as most major college teams. The motto is "Pro quality. Fan Perspective" and that is exactly what Big D Soccer aims to offer.
I'm sure FC Dallas is not the only pro team most of you follow and I encourage you to explore the network and check out the excellent blogs focusing on our local teams including Lone Star Ball dedicated to the Rangers(my personal favorite), Mavs Moneyball, Defending Big D, and Blogging the Boys(heh heh heh).
There's also some excellent soccer blogs on SBN, the best of which being Daily Soccer Fix by the great Steve Davis.
A little bit of my background, I started following FC Dallas when they were the Burn in 2004. I finally got my own car and went to my first game on June 27, 2004. Dallas tied DC United 1-1 with Jason Kreis breaking the all-time MLS goal scoring record and I was hooked. Despite studying at the University of Oklahoma from 2004-2008, I still managed to make it down for all but just a few home games. In 2008, I was a media relations intern with the team and I have written for websites like 3rd Degree, Top Drawer Soccer and Dallas Cup.
It's not about me, however, as the greatest part of SB Nation is it's community style. I encourage everyone to create an SB Nation handle if you haven't already and join this blog. FC Dallas has extremely passionate, educated fans and this blog is meant for you. If you see an interesting story, video or picture that you feel needs to be brought up, post a fan shot and it could be promoted straight to the front page. Have a hot FCD opinion you want to get out there? Make a fanpost to let your voice be heard!
Thank you all for being here and let's get this thing started! This is your place for pre-game, in-game, post-game and the time between games!
