    Chicago, Boston and Dallas are live...

    Seems like NY and LA are next...

    What comes next? Philadelphia? DC?

    I know not everyone likes these sites and has made suggestions for ESPN Podunk etc...

    Just curious if anyone's actually heard something about where they go next / when?

    Yes, ESPN podunk is next. It's gonna be huge. Little league baseball coverage, high school girls swimming. You think Stuart gets excited now, wait till he's doing highlights of 10-year-old Legion league baseball.

    Boo yah!

    I don't know if they go at New York or not, considering the coverage there is still pretty solid by the Times, Post, etc. LA has to be a target, and I think Miami would be smart considering the mess that the South Florida papers have become. Maybe Atlanta for the same reason with the AJC declining. Will definitely be interesting to see where this goes.

    You'd think Detroit would have the sports passion. Unless the economy's so bad no one can afford broadband.

    I've been reading a lot of ESPNChicago preps stuff in the past few weeks, and I'm a big fan. Considering I don't really give a lick about most of the area's high school scene, I'd say that's a big deal in my book.

    I'm sure New York, Detroit, Miami are all in the works. They seem like logical next steps.

    I believe somewhere along the line Pittsburgh was on deck.

    NYC and LA were announced about three months ago, maybe longer. They're both coming in early 2010.

    Phoenix? Four sports, two major colleges.
