Hello there and welcome to the Smitsonian, a shiny new web log about sports things in Indy that is informative and also fun, except not informative at all! And probably not all that fun, really. But it *is* a web log, no doubt about that! It's my web log on NUVO, in fact ... you know, until NUVO gets shock-and-awe'd in the face with 9 billion cease-and-desist letters from various trademark attorneys and Rik Smits (aka, this city's Patron Saint of GETTING RADICAL). Let's open this up to your questions before we're shut down!

What is the purpose of the Smitsonian, exactly?

I am not entirely sure!

Is it a sports blog?

Kind of — but sometimes sports are boring and stupid, so it is also a not-sports blog too! There are many topics that fall into the not-sports category, including:

  • topography
  • Jolly Ranchers
  • "RC Pro-Am" cheat codes
  • lawn-mowing tips
  • the Polish–Teutonic War of 1519
  • why toddlers are assholes
  • Taylor's Bakery
  • Pres. Reagan's Chief of Staff James A. Baker
  • sandwiches
  • ...and much, much more!

I am very confused.

LOL okay we'll get started in earnest next week, probably. We have pressing Colts matters and Mayweather/Pacquiao to discuss and "Avengers: Age of Ultron" to critique, among other topics. Check back here often! I get $0.00000000000025 for each 10,000 clicks the Smitsonian gets, TELL YOUR FRIENDS!
