We're the new kid on the block, and we'd like to take this opportunity to introduce ourselves.
We're OT, as in "Our Town, Our Teams," ready to offer a fresh perspective, keen analysis and inside information on Boston's Big Four -- the Red Sox, Patriots, Celtics and Bruins. So, now you know our name. As for you, well, truth be told, no introduction is necessary. We're fairly certain we know who you are. You're the greatest sports fans in the world, living in the greatest sports town on earth, during a renaissance period for our professional teams. We've been watching you very closely for a long time now, and we think that in addition to a beer or two, you're thirsty for a provocative weekly sports publication designed specifically for a fan's fan. The hard-core, Boston-baked fan.
So who makes up OT, and what exactly is our upstart publication all about? In the simplest terms, we're sports nuts just like you. We can't get enough of the finer things in life, which means Red Sox, Patriots, Celtics and Bruins with a healthy side order of more of the same. We're about the honest, hard-hitting, entertaining and always original writing of award-winning columnists Tony Massarotti, Charles P. Pierce and Chad Finn. We're all about in-depth coverage of Boston's marquee franchises from a stable of talented beat writers who can and will, at times, be a bit offbeat. We're your weekly guide to the Boston professional sporting scene and beyond, with some edge, some humor and plenty of food for thought about the teams you keep so close to your heart. We'll give you inside rumors, anecdotes and a look at the lighter side of the athletes and teams you love to follow and talk about. And we'll be seeing you each Thursday, too, which means we'll have you locked and loaded for the weekend in sports.
In the future, this space will be devoted entirely to you -- our audience. In the likely event you have something to say about the current state of affairs of the Red Sox, tell us. Perhaps you've diagrammed the X's and O's to send the Patriots back to the Super Bowl without Tom Brady calling the signals? Let's hear your strategy, coach. If you've already mapped out the route for a repeat performance by the Celtics and an 18th championship banner hanging from the Garden rafters this season, please, show us the way. And by all means, if you're a general manager trapped in a hockey aficionado's body, and you've figured out how to fix the Bruins? Don't keep it a secret. Use our OT feedback as your springboard to the front office. Or to simply get something off your chest.
Don't be shy about telling us what you think -- about the teams we live and die with here in the Hub, or about our publication and the lineup of writers we've assembled to keep you entertained each week. Bottom line: When it comes to all things Boston sports, we really want to know what's on your mind. We've called this sports-crazy operation "Our Town, Our Teams." But make no mistake -- this is your publication. Your undying passion for Boston's big-time teams is our foundation. And it will serve as our lifeblood. I guess you could say we're all in this together. And we here at OT are looking forward to a long and enjoyable relationship.
