Turf and Boards celebrated its 3rd birthday on April 9. Something that started on a whim in 2017 has become, dare I say, a respected resource for news and opinions, with such well-read recurring features as the Top 40 Free Agent List, Power Rankings, and the Boards Awards (currently under way), as well as news, game stories, and feature articles.
This is the 468th post in three years. Last year (2019) we saw a record 42,827 visitors and 76,912 page views.
We welcomed Nick Episcopo and Nathan Dunn to our list of contributors. I was honored to have Nathan, Craig Elsten, and Art Kramer take part in our Boards Awards panel.
We saw two former writers launch their own webcasts, Matt Huber’s In the Box, and Greg Suttie’s Time Out with Suttie on Soccer.
We are still always on the hunt for new writers to help cover each of the MASL teams, as well as the various other indoor leagues. If you’re interested in writing for Turf and Boards please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hopefully, this world health crisis will be over soon and we can all get together again and fill the arenas.
I am so appreciative of the players and teams (some have been more cooperative than others) and all my fellow fans who love to talk about the game. Thank you for reading. Thank you for commenting. Thank you for sharing.
Yours in arena soccer,
