This site has existed in one form or another going back to 2006. My name is Dave Scarangella, I live in Ashburn and I started it back then because I love sports and I like to write. Computers and website technology have always intrigued me, so while mythical creature Leroy Jethro Gibbs on NCIS is always in his basement building a better boat, I’m generally back in my office watching sports and figuring out how to write a better website.
I spent 10 years of my life as a sportswriter, and the next 30 in the world of sales and marketing (I also own a company called DDA Marketing). I believe writers should write as much as they can to stay sharp, but often don’t have a place to display their ideas. That’s really the purpose of the site, as I write about sports, food, life, my family, and anything that interests me. Sometimes what I say interests others and we get a lot of traffic. But getting a lot of hits, traffic, ads or subscribers has never been my goal. It’s been about having fun, offering a perspective, and maybe doing something that leads to a good conversation with someone else.
The newest member of our staff is a canine by the name of Maggie The WonderBeagle. I'm a big dog lover, and the pup and I sit together and write stories, edit the site, and do copious research on snacks, which we of course share with our readers. If you like what you read, the comments are open to everyone. I no longer participate in social media and I don’t do politics in any way, shape or form online. My favorite sports teams always break my heart. I love to see the good in people, and I love being part of the Ashburn community.
So if any of this sounds interesting, please join us….
