haha, yeah. We're all quite familiar with TamU-k, Antti is a longtime ECS member and the Vice Chairman of TamU-k.

haha, no worries, just happened to be an established connection there.

finnfan might be able to give some background on how Matt ended up doing the story. He just did a writeup for SBNation on the ECS/TA rivalry, I'm guessing he talked to one of our members and heard about TamU-k from there.

I spoke to Matt off the record, and much of what we talked about was Finland, Tampere, TamU-K

So strange to talk about an imaginary place in such detail.

Yeah, Matt heard our story from several people when he was making his ECS story in Seattle, and then contacted me saying that he wants to write a story on TamU-K as well. And when your story is good enough and you pitch it to the New York Times, it just may happen that you get the green light from them.
