Okay, I REALLY hate Times New Roman.  So everything's all in "Arial".  But you can change it back if you'd like :)

 

Welcome to The Arroyo Express!!

 

So on this page, you can have a general introduction and newsworthy events...like upcoming games, concerts, etc. Or any information you'd like really :)

There are THREE parts to this.  "content.html" is this html file.  "navigation.html" is the Navigation Frame.  "frames.html" are the two pages put together :) You don't ever have to touch frames.html.

 

For the navigation frame, you must have the links target to "content".  The code is <a href="pagename.html" target="content">

For links that you DON'T want to have open in THIS frame (such as a guestbook or other external links), use this code:

<a href="http://URLhere" target="_blank">

Using that code will have the pages open up in new windows so they won't interfere with the frames.  Do this on your "links" page as well.  I put that as the target for "view my guestbook"

So now I'm just going to add more text so you can look at the background even more :)

 

 

Welcome aboard the
ARROYO EXPRESS!!

A website dedicated to my favorite player in all of baseball,



Bronson Arroyo, #61
starting pitcher, Cincinnati Reds

 


"I wanted to prove I could pitch in this league, and I think I accomplished all that...
winning the World Series was a bonus."

"I'm definitely a lot more nervous playing guitar and singing...it's weird...
I've been playing baseball my entire life and I've been on the mound
 in Yankee Stadium with the bases loaded in Game 7, but I'm more
confident there than playing guitar in front of 100 people."
