The boys at Baseball Tonight have started their own blog, it’s called Yard Work. I’ve added them to my National Coverage slot, although I’m sure they don’t need the publicity. I read their stuff, and the best so far is Larry Bowa, who curses and rails like a sailor while doing email responses. Truly very funny.
Another newbie is over in More Sports, called The Writers. A whole lotta writers, writing a whole lotta stuff about a whole lotta sports. What more could you ask for.
And finally, I’ve been invited to the Opening of Up for Grabs, the story of the fight for Bonds’ 73rd home run ball. Amazingly, even though I’ve been here in NY for an extra month doing essentially nothing, the film’s press screening occurs exactly two days before I am scheduled to leave, so I’ll be able to attend. I’m also hoping to get an interview with the film’s head honcho, before I go, so look for more between now and Wednesday.
Update: It’s been called to my attention that the Yard Work site is a spoof that has nothing to do with Baseball Tonight or ESPN. A closer look confirms that a) I didn’t look closely enough the first time to see that, and b) it is very well-done and very funny. I am removing from my National Coverage section, and will figure out where to put it later.
