This is pretty cool. The State is a newspaper out of Columbia, SC. They're running an article about how baseball is the only game in town now that the NBA and NHL have completed their seasons. So where to find baseball news on the web? Smart fellows that they are, they recommend the SB Nation network of blogs, of which Blogging The Boys is a member. While the story is about baseball, we football blogs do get a brief mention.
While I'm at it, let me take this opportunity to pimp the other blogs of SB Nation. You can find the blogroll down in the middle of the right-hand side of this page. Check them out and see if your favorite teams - besides the Cowboys - are represented. Take some time to check out the rest of the football blogs, as those guys do a great job talking about the greatest sport ever invented.
While running eight blogs on NFL teams, the SB Nation network includes individual blogs that focus on each of the 30 major-league baseball clubs. The sites include daily updates with links to stories produced by local and national media outlets . Open game threads give fans a chance to talk strategy and offer comments as the games are being played.
Some Cowboys tidbits
The Des Moines Register reports the Dallas Cowboys gave street free agent PK Carlos Martinez a tryout last week. The Cowboys already have PK Mike Vanderjagt, but they are looking for someone to handle the kickoff duties.
From a Lenny P. article on the rookie symposium:
A year later, the Dallas Cowboys linebacker, a first-round draft choice in 2005 and one of the top rookie defenders in the NFL last season, knows the symposium was time well spent.
"For a lot of guys, you've suddenly got more responsibilities than you've ever had before, money, a lot more outside factors coming at you," Ware said last week. "It's kind of like, 'OK, so welcome to the real world.' And the symposium is really great at getting you to focus on real-world issues. You might go into it thinking, 'What can they really tell me that will do me any good?' But you don't come out that way."
