    Perhaps this has been addressed in a different thread.
    If so, please direct me to it.
    Here's the question.
    Is there any kind of directory for the online sports world.
    If I want to get in touch with a fellow sports editor at a paper, I can figure that out.

    But if it's Yahoo, ESPN, CBSsports, Fanhouse, Huffpo and perhaps 15 others that I'm not coming up with off the top of my head, I don't know who I should be communicating with. When I saw the thing Glen Stout was putting together, my thought was, 'Hey, at least I know how to reach him.'

    Basically, if I wanted to peddle myself to the future of journalism, I wouldn't know how to go about it.

    Is there a resource out there that might show me the way.

    Thanks for your help.
  2. I'll show you the way: RUUUUUUNNNNNNNNNNNN!

    While you still have your youth and your winning smile (I'm guessing).

    You sound eager. That's a start. You're putting together coherent sentences. Check. You're asking questions. Way to go.

    But journalism is such a rotting carcass of a profession that you would be a fool to pursue it at your age.

    Now, if you are talking about broadcast journalism, that's another matter. That field has some legs.

    As for newspapers: the print product will be dead in a decade, and most of the Web Sites they are running these days are awful, with the possible exception of NYT, LAT and Washington Post.

    Get on your jogging shoes, my friend.
