A blog is born

The conversation went something like this:

Boss – "So, that fantasy thing you do?"


Me – "The column. Yes"

"We'd like to make it a blog."


"A blog?"

"Yes, a blog. What do you think of that?"

"Sounds good."

"Good, we'll set that up then."

"Good. That's good."

Only I don't know if it's good. Because the truth is, I don't really get blogs. How do they work? What do they do? Can I save money on car insurance by switching to a blog? I have no clue. And I'm frightened.

I don't even like the word. Blog. It's ugly. It sounds like a Scottish beverage, best served frothy and warm. More haggis and blog? Don't mind if I do.

But I'm a good sport, so in the spirit of blogging (and paying the rent), I'm willing to embrace the laws and language of the (insert cringe here) blogosphere. Furthermore, as a sign of deep commitment to this brave new world, I've come up with a few useful, blog-inspired words and phrases of my own. Among them: blog-slapped (to be insulted, ridiculed or otherwise humiliated in the blogosphere), blogerrific (see also: blogtastic, blogrageous) and blogging in the back (10 yards from the spot of the foul).


I even wrote a blog song (a blong?) entitled 'Blogging in The Wind.' The answer, my friend, is blogging in the wind. You get the idea.

Now, getting down to business – this blog is a forum for all things fantasy sports, especially football and baseball. Analysis, tips, spin and rambling fantasy tangents – you'll find it all here. So check back for regular updates, beginning with preseason fantasy football rankings and an inside look at the running backs.

Welcome aboard and enjoy the ride. Sixteen days until NFL kickoff. Blogtastic!
