Hello children! Welcome to Posting and Toasting, your SB Nation home for New York Knicks fans. My name is Seth, and you may or may not know me from my blog, Your New York Knicks. From here on out, I'll be blogging in this location. Let me answer a few of the questions you might have. Press conference begins...NOW:
What's up with the name?
"Posting and Toasting" is a frequent rhyme of Walt "Clyde" Frazier, Knicks color commentator and overall spitter of hot fire. It also doubles as a neat pun, cause like "posting" is what I'm doing on this blog! Get it!?
Who the ass are you?
Well, like I said, I'm Seth. I've been a diehard Knicks fan my whole life, and I started blogging at Your NYK in October. I live in New Jersey and frequently attend Knick games at the Garden.
What kind of stuff goes on the site?
My posts usually fall into one of several categories. I'll provide you with examples from the old blog. Before every game I post two things, a Game Thread, and a goofier, newer feature, the Know the Opponent. Depending on the context of my game-viewing , I'll post Game Notes (usually for weekday games), or the slightly more half-assed Game Recaps (typically on weekends). On off days, I like to do a polar bear-laden link dump called Crumbs, and on Sundays I post some NBA Lookalikes. That's pretty much the way things will go around here.
Will there be boobies?
Um, well...I'll certainly try to include boobies whenever relevant. Kind of a strange question...
Why the move?
Pretty simple. SB Nation is just about the ballerest sports blog network out there, and the opportunity to write along side all of those guys in the sidebar on the right is an honor. Also, the network will hopefully attract some more readers and I might make a dollar or two off advertising. Finally, it's simply an easier format to use than Blogger, and I get my own logo and whatnot. Oh, and I'm still allowed to curse. Shit. Nutsack.
What can I do?
That's the other added bonus of Posting and Toasting. SB nation uses a sweet program called Scoop that allows users to set up accounts. To do that, simply go to Create Account on the top right and do the damn thing. I strongly encourage you to make an account, because it allows you to comment on posts and write your own diaries (right sidebar). My goal is to establish a badass community of readers, and eventually a slave army of zombie Knicks fans. Anyway, go make an account. All the kids are doing it.
Anyway, welcome to the site. Big thanks go to Tyler Bleszinski and Matt Bernhardt for helping me put the site together, and to Matthew Powell and Mike Prada for all their advice. Go create an account, and come help me make SB Nation's Knicks site the baddest one out there!
