In response to Aaron Boone’s crushing walk-off home run that sent the Red Sox home in the 2003 ALCS, Evan decided to create a Red Sox blog. A senior in high school, he had no idea that years later, this blog would still be kicking. That blog later turned into an entire company called the Most Valuable Network, the first online sports media company devoted to a network of blogs.
Fire Brand quickly grew into the most respected Red Sox blog on the internet, with Hall of Fame journalist Peter Gammons commenting “it’s amazing how many club officials read… Fire Brand of the American League.” Evan Brunell flew solo until September 2005. Since then, years later, additional, passionate authors also call Fire Brand home, dedicated to bringing the world musings from Red Sox Nation.
