“I’m squinting real hard, but I can’t see the site design from 2010 anymore? What is the meaning of this?”
That’s you. Welcome to Razzball Version 2.75! We’ve done a little update to the site. Wow-ee-wee-wow!
Two-point-oh is defined by Merriam-Webster, “adjective used postpositively to describe a new and improved version or example of something or someone.” Pretty cool that the little kid from Webster has his own dictionary. Emmanuel Lewis lives forever in our hearts! *googles Emmanuel Lewis* Oh, he’s still alive. That’s surprising. Never the hoo! So, how is this 2.75 and not 2.0? Great question, awkward expositionary question! Because we already did one update, so you were looking at 2.0 all that time! Who knew? Some true heads. Here’s a screenshot of our site from the Way Back Machine. This 1.0 screenshot makes me laugh very loud:
How many of you remember that shizz? Yikes. Can you read the post? The Real World was still on the air! And the guy I worry about them putting in a Real World house, because he’s a drug addict, is now dead. Who could’ve seen that coming? Apparently, a fantasy baseball blogger. Huh, weird. Also, Albert Pujols was ranked number one! I’m dying.
Okay, back to the new website design. The slider on the landing page is amazing. If you drag your mouse over it, you can move it back and forth. Is this. Dot dot dot. Magic? Yes, it is.
We have a new logo. Thanks to our friend and writer, Coolwhip! All of those old Razzball t-shirts became immediate collector’s items. They all just went up in price like the Princess Di beanie baby. Which means, they went up to $3,000.00, then, when no one would buy them for that price, they became priceless. Not as in “priceless” as that term is usually used, but as in they have no price because no one will buy them off of you. Luckily, we have new shirts!
The podcast now sits on the homepage, and you can play it right from there, because we all know how you just leave the site open in the background while you wait for me to answer your keeper questions.
As you see each sport, Fantasy Football, Fantasy Basketball and Fantasy Hockey each have their own landing page now that actually allows you to see recent articles. Crazy, right? A website you can navigate. Eff me, that’s novel!
Now, some of you real smart mothers and you might be thinking, “That screenshot that looks like a Geocities site, was 1.0, and the last iteration was 2.0, but this is 2.75, why not 3.0?” That’s right. We’re not done, but I wanted to take the new site live. Some parts are still janky. Bugs need to be squashed. Might take a couple of days. If you look at the homepage, where the Player Rater sits, that’s still being adjusted. Then, during the season, we’re going to have a few different sections in there, like Top 10 Hitters over the Last 30 Games; a closers depth chart and more (gotta keep some stuff a surprise). Hope you like the direction of the latest design of the site, if not, don’t worry, we’re redesign again in twelve years.
