Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Seems like just yesterday we hatched this lil' corner of the blogosphere as a Dallasy, sporty catch-all spiced with news, opinions and snarky assholeism.

After 365 days, 755 items and 7,735 comments, how we doin'?

President Obama just got graded on his first 100 days. Knowing full well the risk, today I'm soliciting your votes on the Sportatorium's first year.

We're still on the air, so that's good, right?

In general, seems you guys have a taste for the Cowboys, lists, hot chicks and radio rumblings. Consider this the Sportatorium's suggestion box.

What are you sick of? What do you want to see more of? Are you tired of being asked for your input?

While you ponder that question and accompany me bravely into Year 2, know this:

I am flattered. I am humbled. I am ... getting back to work.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
