And Down The Stretch They Come... United

And, we're off and running.

So, what's new with you?

As you can see, the hinted at site changes are now fully live and here to stay. If you haven't done so already, check out the SB Nation United introduction video from the mothership.

There will likely be some bugs to work out going forward, on both the tech team's part and my part, but we've left the starting gate and there's going back. The most noticeable part is the "Cover" at the top, where I now have the ability to organize and feature specific content instead of the old reverse chronological order.

Like I've written recently, once you get past the new coat of paint, things operate pretty much the same as before. Point, click and comment. FanShots and FanPosts can be found in "The River", which is the snaking stories from the top to the bottom of the page. The drop down menus under the Cover feature the archives, featured sections, library and other references.

I've still got some work to do in re-building the sidebar content that is now arranged as "Pages" and "Hubs", but I should have that end squared away in good time.

Anyway, I'm pretty pleased with the changes taking place with the debut of SB Nation United as they are intended to optimize loading times, greatly improve the mobile browsing experience (no more App) and, finally, present content in a more efficient and effective manner.
