SB Nation Announcement -- Regional Sites

Sbn-regionals-bg

Some of you may have noticed big changes afoot here at SB Nation, though they haven't quite reached Rufus on Fire. SBN recently unveiled new regional hubs that will be devoted to their locales. Chicago, Boston, DC, Detroit, Arizona, and New York were first. Dallas and Houston are scheduled to launch tomorrow, and the rest of the local pages are listed on the SBN home page.

What does that mean for us? Not much at the moment, because there's no Carolina page planned. However, it does mean that if you're a fan of a couple teams in one of those locations, you've got one stop to get an overview, or you can visit the specific team blogs. Regardless of what happens with the "official" hubs, I'll try to figure out stuff to do with Cat Scratch Reader and the other local blogs. (I may be a 49ers fan, but I'm also a HUGE Jimmy Clausen proponent. Panthers fans are going to love him.) Ideas are welcome, in the comments or to rufusonfireblog@gmail.com.

Also, to help drum up interest, SBN has put together a schedule of launch parties across the country. I've highlighted the Atlanta party, which is probably the closest one for most folks who read here, but all other parties and their dates are listed after the jump. I've been to the Cleveland location and can tell you it's a perfectly fine establishment.
