Not that guy~! Surprise! It is I, Kari, who has joined the BFB team! Yaaaay me! Yaaay team! And no, I can’t believe it either!
You may ask, “Just what do you bring to the table that isn’t already there?” and I would say, “No intelligent discussion or contributions, bad grammar, long useless polls on the LiveBlog, and a virtual smiley face 😀 ” You may reply, “How does that help anything?” and I would retort, “….Well, my mom’s better than your mom!”
And the conversation would end there.
On a more serious note, I’ll primarily be a news gatherer here on BFB meaning I’d be the gatherer of news (same thing idiot). The news will be Barca-related, of course, and from a variety of sites (or barcastuff, whatever). My posts would be “News of the Day/Week” depending on events. If one day is particularly eventful, I will post a news of the day. If news is slow, news of the week will probably be the post. All in all, I’ll just be relaying information to you .
I’ll also (try to) add some interesting articles that are on the web today. What I find “interesting”, you may not find interesting, but I’ll try to keep it as appealing/amusing/astonishing(-ly amazing) as possible. An example could be a Sid Lowe review of a Barca game, or a Zonal Marking article. You may (read: will) see a La Liga Loca article at some point. I may also post an article to spark some football-related debate among BFBers and get some lesser known articles to your attention.
Don’t expect any reviews/previews/tactical awareness/SoMa goodness/etc. from me. I’m the clueless one on the team who leans more towards the “Ooooohhhhh, purty football! Moc, moc” side of the football scale than the tactical knowledge side (credit tnyatu for the analogy). If I try my hand at those things…
I have some ideas of what I could do, but I dunno if I could make it a constant thing. Some of the “maybe I could do that” ideas: uploading the BFB “game of the season” on YouTube ( after a poll), uploading a Revista de La Liga on YT, posting the post-match comments of Pep and the players after a game and before a review… Yeah. But I don’t want to get your hopes up though. I may not have the time to do that. I’m already taking an age getting the second leg of Barca-Arsenal uploaded (I’ve uploaded the 10-minute pre-match if anyone cares).
What I will do for sure though, is give you a little long monologue of how I became a Barca fan later. Because you’re all dying to know, right? Right.
I am so honoured to be part of the team. If this was a shock to you, it was even more of a shock to me (I’m surprised I even manage to string words together, let alone post something. I still can’t really believe it)! I hope to keep up the BFB standard and make supporting Barca that much more fun.
