Some Really Quick Monday Links

As I’m helping to watch my nephew today, I have a very short window to get links in before he wakes up so let’s get this done before I get delayed. The big story is the Jevon Belcher-Kasandra Perkins tragedy over the weekend. Many of the links deal with how CBS’ The NFL Today dealt […]

Cranking Out The Friday Megalinks

Wasn’t able to do any posts yesterday as I was away for most of the day. Tough to get anything done when you’re out of range for any internet or even 3G. First World Problems. Anyway, time for some Friday megalinks. Been doing well with the links, except for Thursday, but let’s continue doing them […]

Bringing Out Some Wednesday Sports Media Thoughts

Time for some overdue sports radio thoughts. I apologize for the inconsistency in posting. I’ve been sick since last week and its hit me like a ton of bricks. It’s no fun not having a voice and certainly not good to feel wrecked every time I awake. I hope to get better soon, but this […]

Bringing Back The Friday Megalinks

Nate Davis of USA Today’s Game On blog previews tonight’s NFL Network “A Football Life” documentary. John Ourand and […]

Doing Some Monday Linkage

I’m going to make a concerted effort to do linkage regularly again. It’s the reason why I started Fang’s Bites back in 2007 and I was able to do the links daily, even on weekends. But lately, my schedule has been so busy that the site has become a press release dump and I want […]

Some Wednesday Evening Linkage

I’ll provide a few links on this Wednesday afternoon. Michael Hiestand of USA Today looks at CBS pushing its Sunday primetime lineup to 7:30 p.m. ET to accommodate the NFL. Michael Kruse of Grantland has a very good story catching up with former ESPN Radio host Nanci Donnellan aka “The Fabulous Sports Babe”. Ed Sherman […]

Some Quick Monday Afternoon Linkage

Was out for a bit today so I’m behind in what I want to get done here. I’ll do some links for you to tie you over. I’ll start with a couple of stories from Sports Business Daily which looks at some record overnight ratings for Fox and NBC for the first Sunday of the NFL […]

Doing Our Friday Megalinks

Haven’t been able to provide the Friday megalinks in a while. Let’s do an edition today. Normally I include a link to the Weekend Viewing Picks, but I’ll be doing that tonight so you can find it on my site when it’s posted. If you follow me on Twitter or have an RSS feed, you’ll […]

Some Quick Monday Links

My apologies for not bringing you links over the last week. It’s been a crazy time for me. Some linkage now. Michael Hiestand of USA Today writes that NBC’s Rowdy Gaines doesn’t believe that Michael Phelps won’t be swimming competitively four years from now. And Hiestand reports that Matt Millen will ruin your college football […]

Some Olympic Media Links

I owe you some linkage and I gathered so many over the last few days that I’m slowing down by browser with so many tabs. I have to clear them so my browser can run properly. So many things to go over. Let’s do this. First at SportsGrid, Jordan Rabinowitz at SportsGrid notes that NBC […]

NBC and Twitter Announce Olympics Partnership

On Sunday, we began hearing inklings about a relationship between NBC and Twitter for the Olympics. Now, we have the official word from NBC. In this new partnership, Twitter will create a separate page for the Olympics, encourage users to watch NBC’s coverage and embed one of its staffers with NBC’s social media team in […]

Classless. Just Classless

No words. None. I hope Celeb Boutique was not aware of the shootings in Aurora, CO today, but even so, how can anyone make this type of tweet in the wake of the 12 people who died and 59 others who were injured?

It's A Thursday Link Thing

Let’s do some linkage now. Fifth straight day! This is a record!

For the U.S., guys will have Lolo Jones to gawk at, women get Ryan Lochte. Gymnast Gabby Douglas […]

Let's Break Out Some Monday Linkage

Here’s the Monday linkage wrapped in a nice bow for you. From Sports Business Journal’s John Ourand and Michael Smith, they report that ESPN will pay an average of $80 million per year to air the Rose Bowl.

The Thursday Linkage

So weird to have the 4th of July in the middle of the week. You get the holiday after two work days and then have two work days afterwards. Some of you have the entire week off which is good, but for me, there’s no such thing as a vacation. In fact, I haven’t had […]

Doing Some Monday Linkage

Let’s bring out some Monday links today. Starting with Michael Hiestand of USA Today, he talks with Fox’s Erin Andrews (weird to write that) about her decision to leave ESPN. A.J.

A Few Sports Media Bullet Points

Ok, as we’re all in denial over the Miami Heat winning the NBA Championship, it’s time for a few sports media thoughts. Too many things to go over, but I’ll do my best to cover as many things as I can. As always, we do them in bullet form. And to drown out the thoughts […]
