I got your sports right here

Posted by Ryan Jerz on Friday June 9, 2006.

Well, it’s been talked about, and I kind of forgot that it was happening, but today it did. The local blogger story at the RGJ. And now I know how it feels to be typecast. Coupled with this post about Reno blogs, the RGJ has officially done me in. Apparently, and this is news to me, I write pretty much about sports.

Now, I looked at the archives, which list by page, the previous 12 entries here. I am lucky to write one entry per day, and it’s really rare to write two. In the past 24 entries, there are five about sports. And one of those is introducing a new blog. So in three weeks, there are five sports entries. Now, I love my baseball and college basketball, but I am pretty sure I haven’t written about college basketball in a while, and there hasn’t been too much, until two days ago, to really get me going on baseball. Oh, I did make fun of soccer in that time. So how did I get this rep? Or is it laughable that I even think I’m not a sports guy?

It is pretty sweet to get a mention again. I only even knew about the story being published today because I had a few hits from it in the logs. You know, with as much as I’ve talked about my visitor logs lately, you’d think I was a Visitor Log Blogger, wouldn’t you? Are there any of those? I could be a groundbreaker.

A couple of cool absentees from the article are Sugafree and Laura. I’d mention David, but he’s in Ferntucky, which isn’t local. I guess Laura is in Sparks, so I should offer that caveat before you check her out. Hey Marissa, do you guys know each other? Oh yeah, you’re cousins, right? Sparkies.

Okay, enough with the rant. I just picked up a sweet little mixer and some microphones, so excuse me while I go record this week’s Jason Grimsley update and how it connects to other star players in the world of Major League Baseball.
