A New Big Dog on the Block?
And here I thought Daily Kos really loved me. In a post linked by Soxaholix, Big Kos (I'll call him that from now on, I think, in indirect homage to Silva) says he thinks sports blogging is the "next big thing."
Which is all well and good. Until he says,"...which is why I've bought a company in that realm."
Some of us have been slaving away at this for free already, there, pally. Some of us would be quite satisfied with easily the biggest leftist political blog on the planet (and some of us, we will now admit, thought that blog was the result of sincere political opinion rather than capitalizing on a "market", but will now snap a rubber band around their wrists whenever they mistakenly use the words "sincere" and "political" in the same sentence again).
And though we appreciate the kind words, we will not be accepting them after all if they're meant as a, "I will now squash them all, and take over their market." If that's what you meant, go ahead and bite us, Big Kos.
Meanwhile...saying Billy Beane is baseball's "top GM"? Um, you got some "investigation" of your own to do before starting that fabulous company of yours.
