Who Are You? Calling Out The Lurkers

I love the community of this blog. Love it. In fact, one of the most important goals I have every day is to initiate conversation. I know I'm not the best writer ever, so I never set out to recite poetry to you or preach at you. I just want to get you all started on a topic and let you enjoy the conversation. So it makes me happy to see that this community is so rich with dynamic and respectful conversation.

But there are a lot (a whole lot) of you that are just passively reading. That's fine, that's your choice and I'm happy to have you here. But I just wish I could hear more from you because I'll bet you have more to offer than you might think. So I'm calling out the lurkers (a term that refers to someone who reads a blog or forum regularly without commenting much at all). I want to hear your voice.

Even if it is just to say "hi" or introduce yourself and tell us how long you've been a fan or what you are doing for the game on Saturday, I'd like to hear from you. Don't be shy. Even if the only thing you say is "Go Celtics!" that would be pretty cool.

If you don't have an account yet, then by all means sign up for one! Come on! Do it, do it, do it.

Also, a note from Roy: If you're willing to make two leaps in one day, sign up for our forums!
