The Page 2 staff looks back at 2008, Twitter-style
We're on the verge of entering 2009, and one of our New Year's resolutions here at Page 2 is to get a little fresher, a little hipper.
Ever heard of Twitter? For those of you who don't know what it is, here's a primer. For those of you who do, several members of the Page 2 staff have chimed in with "tweets" summarizing the sports year of 2008.
The deal is, each submission has to be 140 characters or less. Check these out -- then vote for your favorite. And happy New Year!
