New header/banner

I created a new header/title/banner for the blog and it has been up for a little while. For some reason I can't get it to line-up correctly. I'm glad that the title of my blog is in the address bar, because you won't be able to tell from the new banner.

"Nationa"[ls] from a uniform + a picture of a baseball + blood-red lettering, as if my blog were a horror movie ("oh no, it's written in blood!" "The wall! It's bleeding! . . . For some reason it's bleeding FAN, the word isn't too scary, but still, giant drops of blood are falling down and coating my head")* FAN = nothing really, because: 1) Hard too see; 2) more prominent titles are "Go Nats!" and "No Parking On Either Side of the Roadway <->"; 3) if visible, looks more like Nationa [picture of baseball] FAN. Maybe I should just rename my blog "No Parking" . . .

Oh, and the sidebar (which takes about an hour to load now . . .) includes a new style to listing the blogs: Image hosted by Photobucket.com

- the blogs whose titles/banners I can "copy" and make into buttons (still need to fix size of Banks and Ball-Wonk).

That's all - I have nothing, at this time, to say about the Nationals.

* - sorry about all the talk about blood - nothing bad intended, it's just that I was examining the blog and noticed that FAN looked like it might have been written in/with blood, which briefly created a startled laugh. My blog is vicious.

Hey Michael,

I had a similar problem w/the banner not aligning correctly when I redesigned. Try removing the orange and peach background behind your new banner image (which is great, btw!). I did this by changing all the padding and px values in the h1 definition lines to 0 if memory serves. Disclaimer: I'm no HTML geek, so I hereby wash my hands of any damage that gets done as a result of my recommendations...
 
Thanks for trying to help! I'm less code-able, as I'm not even sure why the orange and peach background is there. About a year ago I picked up some coding knowledge, updated my blog, and then promptly forgot all that knowledge.

I'll fumble around a little to see if I can fix it.
 
Michael-

Love the new look!
 
Thanks!
