Out for season with stress fracture
Before linking to the devastating news that Yao is done for the SEASON, I had to mention this:
Dan Steinberg of the Washington Post sent me an email earlier about an exchange between Tony Kornheiser and David Aldridge on Tony’s radio show this morning regarding blogs and TSF got a mention
Tony: Yesterday I was all over what is affectionately referred to at PTI as
“The Blogosphere.” And David, you do blogging, so you know about this.
There are four or five sports blogs that are out there that are read on a
daily basis by a lot of people in the sports business and I’m going to name
them so that they know that I know what they are: Deadspin I think is
probably first among equals, there’s something called The Big Lead, there’s
something called With Leather, the explanation for which I can’t go into
due to my employment circumstance, and there’s one called Kissing Suzy
Kolber. Am I leaving any out that are big?
David Aldridge: Well, there’s a couple more.
Tony: Well, I don’t know the others
David Aldridge: The Starting Five is a good one.
Tony I don’t know the others, I don’t know the others, and I will confess
to you that I don’t read these things. And the reason I don’t read these
things is because I’m fair game. And I don’t really want to know….
Thanks DA for the plug and Dan Steinberg for the link. Read David’s TSF interview here. We appreciate the love. Folks, there are so many other blogs out there screaming to be read. If you are wondering…you can simply start with our blogroll.
It’s funny…when I’m covering Sixers games for SLAM and if he isn’t around, I usually sit in D. A.’s seat because it’s so close to the isle. He’s a busy man, so when he shows up I feel like I’m in the presence of an icon. I thought my questions in the pressers were good, but DA asks questions much more deeper and game tight informed. He’s a true inspiration.
Now to the links:
Hope his injury had nothing to do with this:
