Top 10 Moments in Sports Blog History

I helped the Real Clear Sports folks with some ideas for this clever list of the Top 10 Moments in Sports Blog History. (Though it was late-breaking, I would have fit PFT/NBC into the Top 10 and not relegated it to Honorable Mention, if only for the $$$ consideration involved.)

And, no, the creation of DanShanoff.com on the final day of the Daily Quickie didn't make the cut, even though it was perhaps the first example of a mainstream media columnist to migrate to blogging.

The irony of the Bissinger-Leitch event -- which clocked in at No. 1 -- is that it effectively ended the sturm und drang over "MSM-vs.-Bloggers." (The Ibanez thing last week was a hysterical overreaction that is best defined as an outlier from current conditions.)
