Sports Bloggers as Godfather Characters

The sure-fire way to get bloggers to link to you is to talk about them. Especially when you come up with a gimmick like mapping sports bloggers to characters from "The Godfather."

So which character did the Gally guys attach to me? Hyman Roth.

I'm going to go ahead and not assume that it was entirely because of the Jewish thing -- although if you scan the list of bloggers, there are surprisingly few Jewish folks on there.

Anyway, the Roth character is a meaty one: The token Jewish guy in the Corleone family, who then becomes an antagonist while building his own empire.

(The great acting coach Lee Strasburg was nominated for an Oscar for his portrayal of Roth.)

Maybe I'll build my own empire some day (although I'd prefer not to end things as Roth did).

I'll be honest with you. I was disappointed to have been left off the Godfather list. Frowny emoticon.
