A New Voice

As you already know, David has asked me to become a regular contributor to Rufus on Fire.  First, I’m honored that David asked me to start writing for RoF.  I’m also excited to take on a greater role in a community that comprises the most interesting and likable Bobcats fans that I’ve found.

David has operated this blog essentially by himself for some time now. That's quite a chore, so it's only natural that he'd want someone else to start adding content.  When David asked me to take on this role, he mentioned that he was interested in providing another voice.  I can’t promise that I’ll always be interesting, funny, or intelligent.  I do, however, hope to bring some new viewpoints to basketball, the Bobcats, and whatever else happens to come up.  I’ll be posting some basketball related content later this week, but first I’d like to introduce myself.

You all know me as and1droid, but my real name is Jared.  I’m in my late 20’s, and I currently live in the Triad region of the state.  I’ve spent most of my life in school, and there’s a good chance I’ll be going back in a couple of years.  Like many of you, I grew up a Hornets fan and hated to see them leave.  I was thrilled to see the Bobcats come to town, and I generally feel like the struggles we experienced in the early years were to be expected.  I may be prone to take the more forgiving view of the team as any home town fan should.  Finally, I fully expect that we’ll all have a lot of fun this upcoming season.

One last thing.  How about we start things off with a caption contest?  The winner gets an "and1."
