A good friend of mine is launching a network that focuses on numbers, specifically, the numbers that are on the back of an athletes' jersey. He's completely obsessed with sports, and loves jersey numbers, so he created a place just about that. It's called RosterBoard.
Whether it's football, baseball, basketball, hockey, NASCAR, soccer, lacrosse or horse racing, everyone has a favorite number, and RosterBoard helps bring people together to share their passion and interest in a specific sports jersey number. Fans can track their favorite current athletes who wear their number, as well as honoring former athletes who wore it.
I've been taken on a personal tour of RosterBoard, and I'm enthusiastic to see it finally open up to the world tomorrow. Here's a quick video from the site:
RosterBoard also has a presence in a couple of other places on the web including Flickr, Facebook, MySpace, and YouTube. Email me, and I'll get you an early invite from RosterBoard.
