WELCOME TO ChabDog
ChabDog is the by-product of years of dedicated posting experience that I accumulated on Facebook, where I began sharing/commenting on sporting events.
I received support and helpful feedback from my family and friends, and it took off from there. Beginning from an early age, I knew I would spend my life commenting on sports. As a kid I remember watching the “Odd Couple” TV show and wishing I could have Oscar Madison’s job as a sports reporter.
I began my blog in 2013 and I launched by currect site in April of 2014. with the help of my good friend David Juris and his business colleague Claudine Gachi. They have done a fabulous job as site designers.
The name ChabDog came from a law school friend. It's a play on my last name, and I consider it a term of endearment. It me to indulge my love of dogs as I comment on sports.
ChabDog is different because it takes a more edgy, no-holds-barred tone. I think ESPN does a nice job but their reporters are held back by sponsors and athletes who can easily get offended.
They can only go so far with the language they use, the opinions they state etc. I like to think I can take things to a more provocative and avant garde level, as well as tell the audience what I really think.
The goal of ChabDog is not only to inform, but also to entertain. Second, ChabDog has some unique features such as the blogcasts, our reading room, the ChabDog of the Month, our voting polls, and our shopping and restaurant review features.
My goal is to comment on every baseball, football and basketball game. I also cover hockey after pro football ends as well as the major tennis tournaments and college football and basketball.
As the ChabDog logo suggests, we also spend time on dog-related events … notably the Westminster Dog Show and others.
My strategy is to build up my audience, get my blog syndicated/published on a wider platform.
