    That might not have been worth "babbling" as he said. But the sentiment was 100 percent right.

    I agreed with his post 100%, I got a friend of mine's son an interview for a social media job at the NHL office in Toronto. Job was never posted and he would never have known about it, much less got an interview, without me. He did well in the interview but didn't get the job. Still, never got an email or text thanking me. Networking is everything if you want to work in sports and I am a guy with contacts all over the hockey world. A quick thanks goes a long way.

    If the head office needs to hire someone and pay them a bunch of money to not do a lot, put in a good word for me. I know some other folks there other than you who can vouch for me! :)

    Congratulations to all included. It's a nice thing.

    I've lost track, but I think Wright Thompson might be closing in on Charlie Pierce's appearance record. Steve Friedman has also been in there a bunch.

    Nice to see some newspapers in there.

    I think Wright, Charlie, Gary Smith, and SL Price are probably in the BASW Hall of Fame.

    As is usually the case, it seems like there’s an overreliance on a particular type of feature story.

    My Podunk vs. Shelbyville 400-word high school football gamer I compiled from three text messages and a couple of Twitter posts got snubbed.
    This thing is bullshit, man.
