I’m not going to give you some lame excuse about why I don’t keep up with the other blogs in the -sphere, something like “I’m too busy” or “Due to a global conspiracy, the IT department at my office blocks blogspot but lets ESPN through scot free”. The truth is I have a tiny little brain and a short attention span, and I just don’t get to all of the blogs out there. Even the ones I have been hearing about for months now.
But the world is opening up for me even as I languish near the bottom of the JCMJ sports bloggers challenge (I’m so close to the penny, I’m tasting copper). I really can’t “not-read” a guy’s blog if I’m exchanging jocular emails about Bruce Pearl with him, can I? Nay, I cannot.
And, of course, I read up and find out I’ve been missing tons of good writing, and funny bits, and great weekly features. So here’s my first attempt to rectify my mistake. Three links to great blogs I had never read before today:
Rumors & Rants – Is Kelvin Sampson offensive to Native Americans? All signs point to yes.
More ways in which college basketball is a microcosm of real life. Primarily in the way that the popular get all the love while the rest of us sulk. From A Price Above Bip Roberts.
We blog because we suck at math. I can’t believe I missed talking CAA basketball with the guys from Gheorge this year. Well, now I know.
And my usual targets, whom I love for a reason. They give me the bump I need to get through the workday.
I certainly can’t choose favorites among the lovely and talented Ladies… , that would be wrong. But Texas Gal is the only one who will talk to me in public, which is every bit as compelling now as it was when I was in college. Besides, she’s been to spring training.
Amelie and Andrea are hurting. Wait, which one is a man and which one is a woman, again?
My man Schaub is finally getting out of Mike Vick’s shadow. Frankly, I don’t so much care about the David Carr part. But good luck to him wherever he goes.
Hopefully later today I’ll finish off my “How to survive an all-day anxiety attack” post, prompted by the fact that Kansas is in the Sweet Sixteen for the first time in three years, and I have to act like I care about work when all I can think about is how they’ll handle SIU’s defense.
