Sports Blogs

Postby Dr Jeckyll » 01 Oct 2007, 17:00

I didn't see a thread discussing sports blogs in general so thought i'd create one. the only ones i check out on a regular basis are deadspin, thebiglead, and firejoemorgan. firejoemorgan is really good and has fairly incisive commentary. the other two have funny commentators and entertaining topic selection but are dragged down by the general douchiness of the main writers. if anyone has any sites they want to pimp, recommendations, any comments in general, maybe we can start some discussion here.

The only blogs of anything worth looking at are ones with a sendspace or mediafire link.

if im cooking frozen pizza in the oven, how long should i preheat it. box says preheat to 375F but for how long?

Apr 25
the opportunity cost of knowing how to preheat an oven is pretty puny compared to anything else

Every Day Should Be Saturday

It may be a Florida site, but it covers college football in general really well and the lead writer has a unique take on lots of topics. It's probably my favorite daily read.

Kissing Suzy Kolber for football, Baseball Musings, FJM, and The Big Lead. I used to go to Deadspin all the time, but with the new layout, I rarely ever go.

I'm sure many are familiar with it, but TheBrushback is often entertaining in the way it mocks many of the overused cliches in sports. They're usually good for about 1 or 2 laughs a week from me just with the headlines.

My favorite from this week's issue:

Culpepper Refuses To Rub 75-Yard Passing Day In Dolphins? Face
The Rafters:

:19: 2007-2008 SOTSG Fantasy Hockey* champion (*only 4 people, none of whom really cared)

While not blogs obviously, I consider Stewart Mandel, Paul Zimmerman, and (yes, even still) Peter King must reads over at SI.com, Chris Sheridan and Gene Wojo are good over on ESPN.com, and I still like most of Len P's columns.

Paul Zimmerman is "Dr. Z" right? the guy responsible for the chargers-saints super bowl pick this year? i can't stand gene wojo;slfjdgpaoihg either, except i have noticed he writes alot about the cubs. agree with you on sheridan, pk and stewart mandel.

Yeah, that's Dr. Z. His football prognostication skills aren't too great (:19: considering he does the predictions for SI), but he knows the ins and outs of football more than just about anyone. He is absolutely OBSESSED with line play, to the point that it's what he bases his announcer rankings on at the ned of the season, but he's the only columnist I've seen from the major media sources that ever actually discusses the topic. His old codger schtick makes me laugh too.

Yeah, Dr. Z is sorta that old guy sitting in the corner talking about the old days.

References his wife by calling her "The Flaming Red Head". He never played in the NFL, but did in college (I believe).

His prognostications aren't too bad - but he picks straight up, and not against the spread. I like his weekly small square in SI he gets each week talking about the upcoming games.

Hear, hear. I don't care much about anyone's predictions, but his weekly writing during the season is must-read for me. Sample from this week's power rankings:

New York Giants (4-2)
I mean look here, ESPN, enough is enough. I watched the Tom Coughlin Family Hour on your pregame Monday night. Did I have to watch assorted highlights from it during the game, too? Tom Coughlin preparing to take his Giants bowling, Tom Coughlin baking them little pies, organizing community sings, quilting bees? OK, I've got it now. Wonderful, heart-warming stuff. Can we move on, please?
