Welcome to the newly created blog, Shoot Your Hopes and Dreams. This is of course the phrase Mr. Belding yelled to Slater at the end of a Bayside Tigers basketball game. By the time a dumbfounded Slater realized that Belding meant to shoot the ball, the buzzer had sounded and the game was over.
We here at Shoot Your Hopes and Dreams are joining the already saturated landscape of sports commentary blogs. One day we hope to capture the "mainstream" success of Deadspin, the fervent cult following FireJoeMorgan, or even the media ire of The Big Lead, but for now we start with humble beginnings. We will hopefully bring you semi-witty sports analysis and commentary at a semi-regular rate. I (Mookie) am currently unemployed so I will try to post often, but I am also incredibly lazy, so we shall see. The other writers have jobs, but I'm sure this blog will prove a good diversion from actually doing work.
We have no real mission statement. We will not focus on any particular sport or any particular aspect of sports. This blog will serve as a stream of consciousness sounding board of ideas, both inane and pseudo-profound. Hopefully one day espn.com or a similar media conglomerate will gobble us up so that we can get paid. We have no problem with selling out. Enjoy the blog!
