If you'll permit, I want to take a quick moment to bring up something not totally Cowboys-related. BTB is part of the SB Nation network of blogs, so every once in a while I'll need to promote some of our other properties. In this case, SBN recently started up a video channel on YouTube. You've already seen some of the videos; we used them in our draft profile prospects, we also used them as part of the draft review process. And of course, our own KD Drummond has been doing some Cowboys-specific videos and he'll be doing a lot more of these as we move along.
We'll be expanding our coverage of the Cowboys and the NFL in general. Also in the channel there are vids covering the whole spectrum of sports. While you and I know nothing compares to the Cowboys and the NFL, some of us do follow other sports. So you can get some informative and entertaining vids on other sports.
As a favor, I'm asking that you guys take a moment to check out the channel, and more importantly, consider subscribing to the channel. It doesn't cost anything, and it's an easy way to keep track of the vids. Below the jump is a listing of different kinds of shows they're producing. This is a new effort, and we'll continue to improve and we'll create better and better content. This will help SB Nation grow, and by extension help BTB. So, help out the BTB community and subscribe to the SB Nation YouTube channel.
Video has come to SB Nation. We launched SB Nation's official Youtube channel on March 1st with some pretty large ambitions: let's try something new. Across the entire network, we approach the world of sports from a different angle. The passion, expertise, and first-rate analysis and discussion that takes place every day on our sites is something to be proud of and we didn't want to ruin that with a bunch of talking heads in suits and ties with no game-footage rights.
We've got humor, expert analysis, weirdness, video gifs, and incredible storytelling all in one place and we're really proud of what this thing has become. Right now, we're producing over 30 new original videos every single week. Be sure to subscribe to not miss anything. Here's a rundown of the offerings:
(College Football meets Tim & Eric -- New episodes every Friday): If you've ever wondered what it would look like to see a video version of threads on EDSBS.com, we ll here you go. Simultaneously a college football talk show and unintentional postmodern art project, I personally guarantee Spencer Hall and Jason Kirk will make you laugh (or else they've duff'd it).
