A modest farewell

I don't want to make a big deal of it, so I'll keep this brief. I've been contributing to the FBA for a long time; I was following as early as the 2009-2010 season, and submitted my first characters the following one. I was indirectly responsible for the characters having in-character Twitter accoun...

"My character plays like..." Help Thread

A lot of us in the FBA community are basketball fans (big shocker), but some of us aren't particularly knowledgeable about the sport or its players. This can be a bit problematic when it comes to simulating games in, say, the later NBA 2k games, where you need to match a player to an existing player...

Re: The 2015 Draft Combine: Day 1 - Wednesday

For months, Saga Ström been waiting. Ever since the controversy that had ended her career in the Swedish national league halfway through her first season, the howler monkey had turned her eyes stateside. Out of desperation, she chose the FBA, hoping to prove that all of her efforts weren't for nothi...

Re: Saga Ström: Personal notes at the Combine

(Player notes: So, that whole thing about not being able to get Saga a Twitter account? Turns out I was wrong. I'll still keep this up for Combine stuff, since these are private notes and unlike some players, Saga's not going to blurt out every secret she has in public. I don't think she'd even talk...

Saga Ström: Personal notes at the Combine

(Player note: Twitter continues to thwart my attempts to make a Twitter account for Saga, so I decided to write these instead. As usual these will be kept in my laconic style, though Saga's notes are written in a rather clipped and hurried style. Quick intro for the unaware: Saga Ström is a Swedish ...

[The Ekwall Sports Blog] Ström Declares for the FBA Draft

The following blog entry was originally written in Swedish. This is not a literal translation, but an attempt to capture the tone and spirit of the writing. (Also on an OOC note, it's meant to be an introduction proper to Saga Ström, the cynical Swedish monkey draft candidate. On with the show!) St...

In the year 2000, on this day, our father Denver was killed in a car accident. Everyone has to go through the pain of losing a loved one at some point - it's...

Thirty Years (Otto Okkonen)

Thirty Years In 1984, in a city in Finland, Otto Okkonen hatched to parents Marja and Denver Okkonen. In 1993, young Otto lost interest in his school's football program. His coach recommended he try out for the basketball team instead - a decision that they haven't regretted since. In 1996, Otto su...
