Default Your SCMBers in action!

I'm about to do something we never, ever allow new people to do. Create a thread just to plug!

Noon, Toby, Mountaineer Dave, Brad and myself have started a sports blog. It's called Don't Talk About Playoffs,, a bow in the direction of a Jim Mora tirade a few years back. We have three posts up. Enjoy.

Damn, that wordpress looks snazzy with a good bit of options. A buddy from law school and I started a blog about a week ago, but didn't want to do it on blogspot.com because in the past I hadn't been able to split posts on there, but this place has it so I moved on over. So, we had it on geocities and it was a mess. The ease of adding authors on this wordpress is pretty good, likewise with the category set up.

Ah, my boys are all grown up now with their own site!

If I can figure out how, I am still not opposed to letting you all do an SC blog. Kevin inquired about this and I guess got tired of waiting, so started his own. I'd have to get a new tab made for "Blog" and add it to the design, but it might be doable. I'll look into it. See, the guy who designed and coded the site has been AWOL forever and that's left me in a tough spot. But I should be able to duplicate the SC main site into a new blog, if you are interested. It would have the same design as the sports-central.org main page, minus the photos. Then you all could have freedom blogging Deadspin-style and use the existing site as an easy way to get an audience. It also might be cool to tie in the feature columns into the blog and community ... kind of a nice trio. The more I think about it, the more I like it!

But he is quoting Trey Wingo. Trey Wingo But it could be worse. He could start quoting Stuart Scott. Seriously guys, the day you start typing "booyah" is the day I track you down and strangle you all.

(for all the Trey Wingo fans out there, I apologize. I hold no ill will towards him, and he is one of the better anchors there. He just works for the horrid Disney Sports)

It should be doable. Most of the blog creation/hosting sites have functionality that lets you integrate a blog into a website.
