A look ahead, a look behind

First of all, we'd like to start off by thanking our fans for helping us through our first week. Noobsports.com was launched Monday, January 16th, and today, seven days later, we've had 763 unique visitors as of 9:30 AM MST. That's AWESOME, and it's about double what we expected. So we'd like to thank you for visiting the site, for helping spread the word, and for sharing it with your friends.
Here at Noobsports, we'd like to say : "Thank You Fans!"
As a reward, we're providing you with these links:

- Courtesy of Charles Schwab, An Awesome Dunk/Swat Mix, featuring some of the nastiest in-your-face dunks and "don't bring that weak shit in my house boy" stuffs you've ever seen. Superb showing by our boy Dikembo Mutombo. Come on Dikembe, wag that big nasty finger!

- Courtesy of reader James Petar, from Clarkston, MI, A Hilarious Fallout Boy Music Video. Definitely worth the time to watch.

- Along the same lines of sweet music videos, here's A Money Rendition of Pearl Jam's "Yellow Ledbetter". It takes a while to get going, but once it does, it's golden. An oldie, but definitely a goodie if you haven't seen it yet.

We encourage you all to keep providing sweet links and ideas to us, by writing us at noobsports@gmail.com. Keep the good stuff coming, and we'll try to do the same. Also, your comments on our articles are always welcome, and if you have any advice as to how to make the site better, or what you'd like to see more/less of, don't hesitate to let us know (especially you sportsfanaticLRB112, whoever you may be).

Enjoy your Sunday of sports watching, as it's a great one. If you turn on ESPN2 right now, a great tennis match between Sharapova and Hantuchova. This could be an entire article in itself, as you're probably familiar with Maria Sharapova, but Daniella Hantuchova definitely gives her a run for the money. In case you were wondering, Hantuchova has a 42 inch inseam (yeah), and probably the nicest ass on the tour. It would be close, but Sharapova probably gets the go ahead because she screams with every shot she hits. Manchester United plays Liverpool in a matchup of two perennial English soccer powers. Oh yeah, there might be a football game or two on this afternoon as well.

What to look forward to in the upcoming week of Noobsports:

* A review of NCAA Baseball '06 by a surprise guest columnist.

* "The Bode Miller Experiment" conducted by SEL. Yes, you can probably guess, it will be just like it sounds... getting hammered and skiing one of Colorado's toughest mountains.

* A review of the weekend sports action, including 4 college hoop shockers, and a recap of football action.

* And much, much more sweet Noobsports.com action for your enjoyment.

Again, thank you fans for making the first week of Noobsports a smashing success, we'll keep providing the articles if you keep visiting.

All female tennis players not named Lindsay Davenport should have to wear the shorts Hantuchova was wearing today. Wow.

Thanks for the tennis update (to think I was going to watch football without flipping channels). Unfortunately it looks like I'm too late for the Sharapova match, but another girl named Vaidisova is playing now who also appears to have legs as high as my armpits. The announcers got into using the word "taut" in describing one of their tennis strokes, but all I could think it "taut... yes it sure is."

I liked the interpretational music videos. I was in a band back at one point that played the Ledbetter song a couple times. It took some research to actually find the true lyrics. I did get a chuckle watching the Emo kid, but sadly that video was not as funny as it could have been since I have heard that song roughly 8 million and three times by now.

Thanks Steve for the shout out in yesterday's article. I really like what you're doing here...and I'm really excited to hear about the Bode Miller project, way to be an innovator. Well, I'm solo in the office today, so I guess it's back to poking oneys into the company bathroom's ceiling fan for me! Cheers
