I would have texted you breaking news if we were friends. Great news! We can now text like we ARE friends! 

It’s me, Gregg Doyel, Sports Columnist for the Indy Star. We’re offering something new here, a text messaging group with me running point. You can even text me back ... but be nice, please! 

You won’t see everyone else’s texts, just mine, so your phone won’t be burning up all day long ... maybe 1-2 messages from me a day, unless there is something big going on ... game day, breaking news, etc.  

You’ll get an insider mixture of sports, personal info about me, and reaction from the folks I write about ... some will be exclusive; some will be before anyone else gets to see it! This will be unique stuff. Just between us, and it’s available only to subscribers. 

So, to summarize ... 

You’ll get exclusive access to communicate directly with me and have your questions answered.  

Other members of the text group will not see your number, and you will not see everyone else’s texts.  If there are some compelling questions from you or other members, I may choose to share them with my response.  

We will NEVER give or sell your number to any third party.  

Click the link, sign up, ask tough questions, be respectful, and most of all ... HAVE FUN!
