Many have asked, "Why ernie.com?" Truth be told, Ernie is a fictional character, Ernest T. Fan, who we created to represent the everyday fan. He's the kid that plays baseball in the street and uses sewer grates for bases; the friends that gather for a pickup game of hoops or touch-football; or the parent that likes to toss a football around with their kid. Ernie is every season ticket-holder, armchair quarterback, or fantasy league commissioner who ever fell in love with sports. He also represents every heart-broken fan of a relocated team, every taxpayer who is fed up funding stadiums for multi-billionaires, or the hard-working person that can't afford the simple pleasure of taking their kid to a ballgame. Most importantly, Ernie is just a fan trying to enjoy the game...so take a seat and join him.
