Time for some Saturday links. Once again, thanks to Bruce Allen of Boston Sports Media Watch for bringing me into his site to do the Friday media links. You’ll always see them first here, but it’s a chance to bring the megalinks to a wider readership. For those of you coming over from BSMW, I hope you like what you see and bookmark this site. I always try to keep it updated as much as possible.
I’ve been trying to get this up on the blog, but for almost two hours, Blogger has been down, so I’m only able to publish this at 2 p.m. I was hoping to get this up around 12:30, but it’s up now.
So let’s get to the links.
First, the regular Saturday columns.
Barry Horn of the Dallas Morning News says Brett Favre would be a natural for TV, although as you read from yesterday, Bob Wolfley from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel disagrees.
