It’s only been a year and a half.

The last post before this one was February 6, 2011. OK, so I was thinking about how to announce the resurrection of OBSCURE SPORTS MAGAZINE or at least the reemergence of this website when ex-magazine contributor Michael Votto emailed me the link to the video below.

Obscure Sports in Video Games

Full disclosure: I’m a total video game nerd.  Well, not one of those people who sit in their dark bedroom playing World of Warcraft all day – I don’t have the time or money to do that – but I’m a pretty geeky guy when you get me around any console.  Ever since my family […]
