If you’re on Twitter, there’s a feature that has caught on among members called “Follow Friday”. Each person suggests others to follow and if you like the person’s Tweets, you can hit “follow” and get that person’s updates.
Through this, I have found quite a few people to follow and have made some good connections. I’m going to extend that here to Fang’s Bites.
For Football even though I’m a massive Browns fan and hate everything Steeler-oriented, I give you, Steelergurl. She knows her football and always goes back and forth with NFLprguy Brian McCarthy on Twitter. I have a great respect for Steelergurl and her posts. Visit her blog as well.
For Baseball blogs, Red Sox-centric in particular, there’s Sox & Dawgs run by my good friend, Ian Bethune. Well, I haven’t met Ian personally, but we always e-mail and Tweet each other so I feel like I’ve known him for a while. Go visit Ian and enjoy not just his Red Sox posts, but on New England sports.
The hockey blog I visit constantly is Puck The Media run by Steve Lepore. He’s on top of all things regarding the hockey media. Very well run and I’m also an occasional contributor. Visit his site often.
If you’re a regular visitor to this blog, you know that I regularly link to Neil Best of Newsday practically every day. Not only is he quite prolific in posting, he also does quite a bit of reporting for his column.
There’s also Richard Deitsch of Sports Illustrated who returned to the magazine after 9 months at the University of Michigan doing a fellowship. I hope to have more from Richard in the future.
My former partner-in-crime at WPRI-TV, John Crowe has his sports media blog, the Crowe’s Nest. The stories I could tell you about how John and I developed scavanger hunts for associate producers and interns just to torture them. However, the Statute of Limitations still has not run out so I must keep quiet. Maybe one day, John and I will reveal them.
There’s also the Sports Media Journal headed up by Southern New England multimedia magnate Keith Thibeault. It’s also the home of former Baltimore Sun media writer Ray Frager. SMJ has very thoughtful posts and is one of the best sports media blogs out there.
I would be remiss if I did not include Maury Brown’s Biz of Baseball. Maury has become quite the expert on MLB’s blackout rules and also keeps up to date on baseball stadia, attendance and other things related to the Business of Baseball. He also has the Biz of Football, Biz of Basketball and Biz of Hockey. Visit them often.
Every Friday, I’ll bring you different sites for my Follow Friday.
