That’s what happened yesterday when I received an email from a fellow by the name of Jay Platt, a writer for a website called The Sports Riot! .
This past week, Jay had been writing some incredibly fun and well-written articles about Green Bay, Wisconsin, and focusing on the Packers. The final blog in the series was posted yesterday and listed some of his favorite blog sites – this one included.
I’m honored and really give much of the credit to the talents behind the scenes – all the folks over at fansided.com. They have provided the tools and the opportunity to be a part of their team. Since April of last year it’s been quite a run to get this site up and running – thanks to all of you who have clicked on our link and come here on a regular basis.
As one of the five sites he cited in his blog, “Packers Fans Speak (and they do it well),” Lombardiave.com joins an elite group that includes Acme Packing Company, Cheesehead TV, Packers Gab, and Total Packers.
I suggest you bookmark those sites, too, as they are some of my favorites. We all have one thing in common: Our love for the Packers franchise and a love of writing about the team – good and bad.
Jay’s description of our site is as follows:
Lombardi Ave – This site serves one purpose and that’s to get Packers news out to Packers fans. The articles are well written and give the reader all the information they will need regardless of the topic. They also feature writers from other teams giving their point of view, in a non-antagonist way (something I’m not used to). This gives the reader a different opinion you normally wouldn’t hear. There are numerous links for fans to find other sites, and the site isn’t visually busy like so many others. I get the idea that Lombardi Ave doesn’t care about frills, they just want to get to the point.
Check out The Sports Riot, and especially his series on Green Bay, you’ll love it. I know I’ve got the site bookmarked now.
