So how much does sj.com provide material for sports talk radio?

    Saw on the cereal thread where Colon Blow Cowherd was doing a cereal tournament along the lines of what was done here a year plus ago.

    And heard a tease today where the 2 Live Stews were going to have the Count from Sesame Street on discuss the recent layoffs.

    Coincidence that these stories played out here as well (and first, of course)?

    Or is SportsJournalists.com a regular stop for show producers looking for stories and material to push on air?

    God I hate to do this, I mean I really hate it:

    Cowherd didn't steal the idea. He was bumbling on like a tool, as usual, and was talking about how everything is better in brackets. "Hey, you could even put cereal in a bracket"... and away he went.

    Now, if he does a candy bracket, DyePack is gonna hit the mac-and-cheese and creamed corn buffet like a drunk.

    I'm sure it's just a coincidence. Hell, he probably stole the idea from the Sklar Brothers, who are the ones who actually DO put everything in brackets.

    I don't even know what the means. What does that even mean? Creamed corn buffet?

    Unless you live in Dallas, where there's plenty of fodder to be found at Valley Ranch.

    SportsJournalists.com in particular? Not sure. Message boards in general? More than you might think.

    I post under my real name on the board I moderate. At a meet-and-greet for a local college football team a few years ago, I crossed paths with a veteran sportstalker in our market, who was simulcasting a radio/TV show at that time. Figured I'd introduce myself; when I told him my first name, he immediately said, "From (our Web site)? That's a great site -- I check it out every day."
    We talked for the next 20 minutes, completely ignoring the coach sitting at the table with him.

    His current PD drops by the board regularly, and the sports director at another station in town (who used to work for the 24/7 sportstalker) actually posts.

    So, yeah. They (and more than a few of the print guys I talk to) are reading ...

    Honestly, they should be looking here for tips.

    How many times do stories hit here before the AP wire? Once a week? Once a day?

    Hell, I fully expect to read on here that I've been downsized about 10 minutes before the boss calls me into the office.
