Avat your way?

For a while now, it hasn’t been quite enough to rant about your favorite sports team with close friends and family. Ranting is becoming an Internet staple. Super Bowl fans will be pleased to know that ESPN.com’s SportsNation is hosting Voice of the Fan avatars for the Big Game, created by the folks at Oddcast. Yes, you can dress your avatar (we dressed one up like Elvis during his Las Vegas phase, but there are plenty of other options, like the one pictured here) and record a message, which you can share with other fans or e-mail to the same close friends and family you used to actually talk to back in the day.

As for our Elvis avatar, he looked fabulous, but we couldn’t think of much for him to say. We don’t think the Big E ever really clarified whether he liked the Pats or the Eagles.
