Blogs in general
We’re in the Seattle Times today in which the Times, for the first time, mentions the bleachers.
Two things I want to mention:
Perhaps it takes the right hot-button issue. Zumsteg, a program manager at Expedia who writes the U.S.S. Mariner blog, just might have hit on one.
I don’t so much write the blog as for the blog. Given the massive contributions of Dave and Jason (yeah, I know he hasn’t been around — he’s got a new kid) I think that’s an important distinction.
“We’re like the Radio Free Europe for Mariners fans,” said Derek Zumsteg, 30, who blogs on the baseball fan site U.S.S. Mariner and says he wants to stimulate “a good fight with hair-pulling and name-calling.”
I did say the Radio Free Europe thing, but the other quote comes from the Comments Guidelines where that was supposed to come across as a comment by someone I don’t want hanging around, expressing a view entirely opposite to the one I hold. I’ve tried to make that a little clearer, going in and putting the header in quotes and making the text clearer that I’m responding… but unfortunately it’s too late for the article.
