Finally Finally Finally

I wish I could tell you that these past two months had been spent carving out my own bit of HTML magic, building a Wordpress template from scratch that somehow made Canadian soccer history interesting to anyone outside of me, Colin Jose, and those guys at the Canadian Soccer Hall of Fame. 

Really, the last couple of months has been what John Lennon once called life—that thing that happens while you're busy making other plans.  Well, screw you John Lennon.  I am happy today to announce the "launch" of The Spirit of Forsyth.  Now, I have to remind you I am no Wordpress expert, so I'm sure there are many among you who will come back at me with daggers, or perhaps friendly suggestions to make the thing better.  I know it doesn't have a links page and some of the pages are empty-looking.  The problem is I don't care right now.  I will care when more people read it and make disparaging comments though.

That's why I think having this out there will be enough to make me want to make it better anyway I can.  And in the interest of gathering as much interest in this site over as long a period I can muster, this will be the first of several mentions, followed by a Twitter account, followed by emails to persons of interest, then a Facebook fan page, maybe a t-shirt and/or scarf down the line.  Hey, they didn't build Rome in a day.

So, there.  Welcome to The Spirit of Forsyth.  Think of this as a beta test.  If there's anything messed, let me know (but don't talk about the template.  PLEASE don't do that).  And if it looks threadbare on the content, don't worry; there is so much goodness coming down the pipe, I can't STAND it.
