Moving on Up

As we prepare for the start of summer practices, Fan Day, and eventually the opener with ECU on September 2nd, I will work harder to bring you, the reader, with more detailed posts about the state of the 2006 Navy team and our opponents. In the 6 months or so that Pitch Right has been in existence, it has swelled from an unknown college football blog to one of the main gathering points for Navy fans across the internet. Not only has this blog caught the attention of Navy fans, but its increasing popularity amongst college football fans in general is a great and welcomed surprise. Keeping this in mind, I would like to inform you that I have recently been contacted to take my services onto a much larger platform, and to continue blogging about Navy football in a much more detailed and much more frequent fashion. You can expect multiple posts a day, and anywhere from 10-20 posts a week as we embark upon the journey which is the 2006 football season. During this time, I will continue to post on the present web address (sponsored by blogger.com), and continue to try to bring you both commentary and analysis on Navy Football. Starting August 15th however, this current website will become much more national in its scope, with my new location focusing solely on Navy Football.

So what is this new gig I've got going? Well, I don't want to reveal too much right now, but I will say that it will be sponsored by AOL Sports and that I will be getting paid for it. I can also say that I will be churning out much more content then I am now, and that I will be taking a more active approach in covering Navy football. To be perfectly honest, it's almost like a dream job, and I'm absolutely thrilled to be given the opportunity. I'd like to thank you the readers for helping me make this blog into what it is, especially those of you who I know always take an active role in commenting (Navy94, PhatPhelix, frogman, everyone else). It’s because of you that I’ve been given this opportunity, and I only hope that I can continue to evolve as a writer and continue what I have started here.

God I cannot wait for Football Season

Adam - congrats on the new gig. I look forward to reading it - hope AOL Sports allows global access for those of us who moved beyond AOL access in the early '90s.
I hope that this blog doesn't suffer from less Navy/more national as you make the transition.
Keep up the good work.

I appreciate the kind words, and yes, I'm fairly sure that the content will be accessible to all internet users (I'm a comcast man myself). As I said, the really heavy Navy analysis and commentary will go over there, while my national musings, humor, and random tidbits will still be featured over here.

Dude, just make sure you give me credit if you steal stuff from my board. :-)
