updated the Pens timeline again

Oct 21, 2015 21:09

It's here. I should put a link in the sidebar for finding. Comments for things I should put are much appreciated! (ESPECIALLY WITH LINKS.)

Anyway, a thought I had about it: one of the big things I'm trying to capture with that timeline is the ~narrative, and how it ebbs and flows over time. For me one of the hardest things to figure out when I'm trying to include people from other teams is the emotional and ~narrative context for their team. Have they been doing well? Badly? Someone slumping? Ridic PDO? Starting goalie is fine but working too much because the backup is playing like hot garbage? What's the fanbase excited about? What's it panicking about?

So that's part of what I'm trying to do with the timeline.

(FYI, one of my most successful ways for catching up on that stuff in a hurry is to find a team's year-end posts on SB Nation or some other blog with a strong commenting culture, and reading the comments. It's still biased towards recent events, but you can get a sense of what the fanbase thought of the season as a whole.)
