I heard somewhere that a Fan Post should be like a jelly donut: Its beginning should fill you with pleasure, and its ending should leave you hungry for more. Unfortunately, the best I can manage is a title for a Fan Post and after that: pffft. Not much of a beginning.
I realize that most of the "hip" fan posts are chock full of hilarious similes and analogies, but my level of cleverness usually amounts to "That's about as welcome as your mom's expression when she finds a batch rag under your bed." See? Makes no sense. Unlike a gif of a kitten, there's almost nowhere that that would be appropriate to insert.
This whole UFC 145 thing has got me in a fever of ideas. Every day I browse BE and a dozen other sites, hoping to find some coverage of the event - especially the main event - and all I find are scattered reports. And I've scanned every channel on TV and wondered, "Is this fight card this week or a year from now? Why no coverage?"
I've found myself thinking "hmmm...maybe I should write a Fan Post and cover some of the topics everyone seems to be avoiding" and then, naturally, I think "I could pretend to have inside information, sort of like Front Seat Joe or whatever that guy's name is that twitters all that shit about his ‘sources' feeding him scoops." I figure if anyone calls me on it, I can just say "internet, my man...deal with it..." and log off for a few days until the dust settles and some fighter fails a piss test or everyone is distracted by someone else's article about Super Fite Leeg or whatever.
So, anyway, I've got the itch to crank out a Fan Post before the shit goes down on Saturday, and I could use some input. Here are some Fan Post titles I'm working on - I just need some suggestions on, you know, text and what have you that I can insert to fulfill the 75-word requirement (and get a bunch of recs, of course, because I'm not one to shy from adulation of any kind, even from strangers). To show I'm serious and to demonstrate my gratitude, I'll insert a relevant gif and, if I can figure out how to do it, maybe even a controversial poll right in this thread.
Ha ha, I just realized it's true that drinking helps make these fan shots seem like very good ideas.
Check it out! The "jump" everyone uses!
Here's my list of titles, with brief explanations to guide you [I even edited it, using Bold and Italics to add pizzazz!]:
There you go. Any help will be gratefully received. Here, have a gif:
And look, a "poll"!
