The Common Man is celebrating tonight, even though the Twins aren't in first place. Yesterday, The Common Man was part of the weekly Manival, a carnival of blogs by, for, and/or about men at Discovering Dad.com. It was an honor to be included, and The Common Man tips his hat to the other fine men who made this week's list. The day saw a huge uptick in traffic here, and The Common Man is grateful for each and every new reader. He invites you to come back often, as he updates the site with new material daily (and sometimes more than that).
For you newbies, this is a site about men and the things men should care about. The Common Man is tired of Hollywood and Fox News and French make-up designers telling him what manliness is. No, in true manly style, The Common Man, a real man if there ever was one, will tell you what manliness is. And what men should do. And watch. And say. And how they should feel (numb is good, or at least faking numbness and fear that you're not stifling your emotions enough).
It's a place where you'll find posts about family, beer, stupid things men do (because to do things without thinking is manly), sports, film, tv, politics, and, of course, explosions. Big ones. The Common Man looks forward to interacting with each and every one of you. So surf around a while. Read some stuff. And come back soon. And thanks for making your way here in the first place.
