Don Cherry Video
This Canadian Announcer is frickin’ hilarious
Don Cherry on Women at Hockey Games
He was on NBC promoting the fighting in Hockey recently so I googled a few of his vids.
Most Influential Sports Bloggers
Jamie wrote up his list and it was nice to see Bob included in it. Well done Bob. 🙂
As for that list, very US centric. Which is fine. There are a lot of sports bloggers that we don’t know about or in non-US sport (soccer) that are rather influential. But it is our world so we can define it how we want, eh?
Italian Diving Team
Daytona 500 and NASCAR
Sitting here watching the Daytona 500 on a beautiful day. I watched the qualification last weekend from Sunriver with my buddy Scott and it is a lot of fun. The race is fun as well. Just saw this driver Boris Said spin out – but he is still in the race after putting on some new tires.
We are thinking of doing a Nascar Logue much like we did for WCBlog. I think it would be a lot of fun. Anyone know and kick arse Nascar blogger to head it up?
More new Soccer Blogs from theOffside
Bob is amazing with his writing, energy and passion for football/soccer. Just reading his site today, I see he has a bunch of new sites starting. After the jump – see the full list of soccer blogs. (more…)
Blogging is so easy: Bill Simmons
The Sports Guy was at the Super Bowl Media day and took some pictures and posted some comments about it. It is a really good take/recap of what Media Day is like from his perspective.
The funny thing is that no one really does stuff like this. The Behind the Scenes stuff that is so interesting. We used to do quite a bit of it on BootBlog. Nick still does a lot of it on BaliBlog. It is such an easy piece todo, almost any blogger can do this type of piece. Wanna create compelling content? Cover an event and don’t try to right the AP story on it…have an opinion, take some pictures. It’s not gonna a win a Pulitzer, but it sure is entertaining and informative in its own way.
