I’ll be back on the site probably late tonight. Talk to you then.

… and yes, I may get a chance to go to the USA-Guatemala game. We’ll see.

Pulling back the curtain

October 31, 2008 · 1 Comment

People often ask me how do you “do” a site like this. Many folks don’t realize how simple it is to pull off a blog like this both in terms of technical knowledge required and in terms of investment required.

So here is a chance to pull back the curtain and take a look into Fighting Talker HQ. (more…)

Scheduling Note from Aaron

October 27, 2008 · No Comments

I know you all are sitting on pins and needles waiting for my thoughts on yesterday’s Columbus match. I will have that on the site late tonight. Reason for the delay? I am slammed at work today, and will need to record, edit, and post tonight’s podcast first.

UPDATE: Podcast is delayed to middle of the week. We ran into a few scheduling snags between Ed, Barry, and myself.

Thanks a lot for your patience.

I will not be posting during Yom Kippur. I’ll be back with more fun and more thrills on Thursday night.

Ed might stop by to salve your need for Fighting Talker goodness.

Fighting Talker Classic

September 2, 2008 · 1 Comment

I’ve simply gotten sick of the way this blog has looked since I switched away from the original “cutline” theme. Yes, it doesn’t show who’s written each individual post, but here’s the easy way to tell. If it doesn’t list an author, then it’s written by Aaron and if it says “By Ed” then it is written by him.

Isn’t that a far easier solution than all this new theme nonsense?

New Theme

August 21, 2008 · No Comments

I’d been getting some reports of this site displaying oddly in certain circumstances. Subsequently I have changed the theme to the current one in order to fix some of the issues.

Let me know if this has only made the problem worse.

A Blatant Plug

August 8, 2008 · No Comments

I am starting a new blogging venture this week called Two Foodie Brothers. My younger brother and I will discuss restaurants and cooking and all the other stuff we typically talk about when not talking about sports.

Please feel free to give it a read.

Thank you readers

August 4, 2008 · No Comments

I just wanted to take a moment to thank Fighting Talker’s readers for giving the site its fourth consecutive month of readership growth. As you can see from the chart, this little blog has grown immensely from when I started it on a lark back in March.

Thanks again, folks. Be sure to keep reading and please, keep commenting.

Aaron’s taking a break

July 15, 2008 · No Comments

In Maine, this is called a beach.

Hey folks, I am heading up to Portland, ME for a week-long vacation tomorrow, so I won’t be posting quite as much as usual. Don’t worry, I’ll be sure to let you know my thoughts on Craig Thompson’s upcoming signing with Arsenal (he’s all we can afford at this point), but otherwise I am going to enjoy some nice weather, the brisk freezing Atlantic ocean, and some good seafood. I don’t know if there is soccer in Maine. I don’t really care either. But don’t fret too much folks, I am sure Ed will take good care of this place.
