An inauspicious debut

August 16, 1954 – Sports Illustrated hits newsstands for the first time. September 7, 1979 – Sports Center makes its debut. August 1, 2005 – Stephen A. Smith earns the right to yell during the lowest-rated show on television.

There have been some important firsts in the world of sports coverage. Well, this isn't one of them. “Point 23” debuts today (that’s what you’re reading right now, by the way…) with about as much fan fare as the second episode of “Quite Frankly.”

Since we really don’t have anything like goals or objectives in mind, we thought it wouldn’t be a terrible idea to give you a peek at our Mission Statement. Only a peek, though, so read quickly.

First things first: we’re biased. Unlike ESPN, who doesn’t know the difference between being objective and not (see: Bonds on Bonds), we think we have a pretty good handle on the distinction. And we’re biased. Certain teams are going to get hammered more often than Vin Baker.

or starters: anyone associated with Duke, Barry Bonds, the Yankees, Terrell Owens, Billy Packer. Bascially, you really have to try to be a jackass. This list is by no means exclusive,
and expect it to grow – quickly.

Also, anything associated with the word “Tar Heel” will get a free pass.

Aaaaaaaaaand that's pretty much it. Basically, we just wanted to get something up on to see how it looked. We hope its pretty.

Oh, and by the way. "Hotness" is what's hot. Pretty simple, eh? No? OK, well here's what to look for:

3 comments so far. Might as well add your own.:

When I first read the title of this I thought that it was in reference to Huggy Bear's BAC when he got pulled over a two years ago. Nice start, hope to read more. Liked the Top 10 and where do you stand on Jim Rome?
