Hello, Internet users. Checking KSK on a Saturday? That means you probably like sports blogs a little too much. And if you like sports blogs too much, then you should get your tickets to the Blogs with Balls 2.0 conference in Las Vegas next month as part of the BlogWorld & New Media Expo. It’s like ComicCon — but less cool!
Anyway, I’ll be joining Amy K. Nelson, Kevin Blackistone, and Bethlehem Shoals on a panel called “The Future of Sports Media” that will be moderated by Dan Shanoff. If you missed Blogs with Balls 1.0, then you missed some amazing rants by Shoals. Expect more of the same this time, with the added bonus of me naming specific bloggers and mainstream writers who are awful, just awful. Then I’m going to spend the rest of the weekend drinking and gambling with our very own PUNTE, depraved “liberty risk” A.J. Daulerio, whirling dervish of humanity Spencer Hall, and others. Finally, as a service to you, dear readers, the following week I will NOT write a 5000-word column about how, even though my friends and I are older, we still magically summon the power to get drunk and have fun in Vegas.
Should be fun. Join us. Buy tickets here, and buy them now — prices go up on September 14th.
