New Blogger: Donald Brashear?
So a few weeks ago, Donald Brashear was on the Junkies and the topic of online poker came up.
(I swear, when I started down this path, I had no idea it would involve the Junkies yet again. I'm not on their pay roll, really.)
"I like online [poker]," he said, "but right now what's happening is when you're in the U.S., the U.S. government doesn't allow people to play poker online, if you want to get money and stuff."
"You want to play on Absolute, I'll send you a link, I'll get a percentage of your rake," one of the Junkies said.
At which point Brashear gave out his e-mail address over the radio. I'll withhold that address for now, although it's obviously not that hard to find. And what happened next? Aside from a Junkie saying "silly"?
"Five minutes later I'm getting [bleepin'] emails coming in, coming out," Brashear said. "I'm thinking, 'A lot of people want to talk to the players, so why not just start a blog and see where it goes?' "
And thus, a new local sports superstar blogger may have been born. Brashear is currently trying to find a home for his blogging services on the Interwebs, and hopes to settle on a destination soon, but he already knows the sort of things he'll write about.
"Just every day stuff," he said. "If I go on a trip, somewhere nice, get some pictures, show the people. You know, people want to know information, they have all kinds of questions. They don't really know how it is inside, they don't know that sometimes it's hard. They think it's easy all the time and we should never have to complain about anything, but we're just living our life like anybody else. I want to show them, but I want to show them all the nice things we do, go on trips, what we do with our free moments. You go out partying, take a few pictures, show the people. In the summer, if I'm building a new house, I can show it, take pictures and show it, show people what I really do."
("Lots of questions, but I don't have lots of time to answer it," Ovechkin explained. "Soon they give me password and everything so I can go my blog and talk with the people, you know? I read it every day." Also, he told me he'll be launching his own Web site soon, which will have videos and photographs from his youth. He said it might be called Ovie.com, but that appears to be taken.)
Anyhow, Brashear has some other ideas for his blog that he can't really talk about just yet, but he has high hopes for his entrance into these parts.
"Sometimes it can go big real quick, it all depends," he said. "If I find something interesting to put on there, I think people will come check it out."
