Our friends at Joe Sports Fan have launched a very interesting idea: asking the St. Louis fans to help fund their new all local relaunch and podcast with a Kickstarter campaign. The goal is $5,000, and while they’re off to a good start, we’d hate to see this brillant idea stall after the glow of the Deb Peterson press release article fades.
If you’ve never heard of Joe Sports Fan, here’s all you need to know: Occasionally we can’t help ourselves, but we try very hard to not cover sports stories because the guys over there have St. Louis sports covered. Hopefully that resonates as well as we think it should. That was a difficult statement to make because, you know, we’re awesome and we know we’re awesome, but in the case of local sports news we defer to the JSF guys and take the rest of the news (read: crime) for ourselves. They deserve your support, so go throw $30 bucks their way and enjoy what happens next.
Think of it like going to the East Side: It doesn’t cost much and you have no idea what will come of it, but you’ll probably laugh and have a good story to tell…and if it some how gives you a boner, you’re weird, but good for you!
