Today is an extremely important anniversary



Five years ago today, the Villanova blogosphere received a new addition in Fact on Villanova Sports, a scrappy little runt that would change the tone of Villanova blogs forever. Within its first year of its, this blog had broken multiple stories of consequence, Villanova made the Final Four, and won its first football championship. We also found the infamous player webpages that were subsequently stolen by Barstool Sports and Deadspin. Since then, we have shrunk from four writers doing so irreverently, shitty dick jokes, mock drafts, deliberate antagonism of other Villanova blogs, and photoshopping people in pictures with dictators to only one writer who essentially posts YouTube videos with one sentence responses with only occasional commentary.

Nonetheless, it has been a hell of a journey thus far, and despite the poor quality of the majority of the writing, it has been an enriching experience.
