    One of these things is not like the other, one of these things just doesn't belong.

    Is it safe to say Lupica didn't write his own entry?

    Mike Lupica is a columnist for the New York Daily News. He is a regular on ESPN's "The Sports Reporters" and has been reporting sports since he started covering the New York Knicks in 1975 for the New York Post. His identical twin is the model Dunkin Donuts uses on their Munchkin boxes. Single-handedly declared that the Yankees are October, though no one really knows what it means. Apparently it has something to do with the one month he doesn't bash them to holy hell. And speaking of holiness, he also decreed that catholic priests no longer concecrate bread and wine during mass, but intead wine and a wheel of cheese. The faith has become particularly hostile to the lactose intolerant as a result. Fired Jason Whitlock from The Sports Reporters. When his son got cut from a basketball team, he started another one and then wrote a book about the scrubs. Then decided their month was November.

    There's no Whitlock entry.

    This might have some promise.

    I'm not sure why you would need a site to find out about Whitlock and Albom et al, you can find that anywhere (and with greater accuracy than on a page that anyone can edit).

    What you could use is a site for the rest of the sportswriting community: For a small fee, people could register themselves and make their own page. Who you are, where you come from, what you cover....anyone can log in and search by name, region, newspaper, team, sport...whatever. You maintain your own details--include magazines, TV, radio, books-- and pay a small annual fee, maybe $10 a year.

    Maybe it's out there, I've seen it for other industries, seems like it could work for sports people.
  11. You may be right, if that's the case we can pull the plug. But done in the right spirit it could be a pretty good thing. We'll see.
  12. Thanks to sound advice from people on this board, we're requiring a confirmed e-mail address before allowing anybody to post. That should cut out most of the garbage.
