First, you will notice this morning that we've revamped our page header, retiring the gray face of our beloved cardinal and expanding our logo. As I've written before, we favor simplicity and clarity over gaudiness, gimmicks and blinking lights, and we feel that the new logo delivers in that respect. May every visitor to this web site bask in the stunning declaration upon arrival that they, connoisseur of blogs and fine wine, have reached CARDINAL LAWS. You're welcome.
Second, we're introducing some new functionality to the web site thanks to the powerful sorcerer ways of Mark Zuckerberg. It is now possible to "like" our blog on facebook by clicking on the button immediately below our header. A few posts below that, you will find a link to a new Cardinal Laws facebook page. If you go to that page and "like" that, then you should, I think, possibly, maybe, receive occasional updates of our posts in your facebook news feed. Plus, you and I shall be linked forever. Or until you de-friend.
Why the changes? Well, besides helping us convince our wives/fiancees that we actually do have readers, and that this whole blogging experiment hasn't been a two-year-long online love letter between myself and Mr. Red, we're excited about the added facebook stuff because of this upcoming Cardinal athletic season about to begin: a football team that we think will surprise the remaining naysayers, a basketball team with the potential to maybe deliver on all our hopes and dreams, not to mention a promising Lady Cards squad and a soccer team preseason-ranked #1. We're pumped and we are ready, and as this new season dawns and events inevitably take their turn for the worst, breaking our spirits and sending us scurrying to the blog wires to pour out our hearts, we want to be able to get out the word. Because it's going to be spectacular.
So if you can find it within you, "like" us. Like the living bejesus out of us, like you've never liked before. Reckless abandon, I say. And our fates shall become one. Now, back to the Cards...
