Web Sites You Check Daily...

Discussion in 'Sports and News' started by Genco_Olive_Oil, May 16, 2008.

  1. I'm a little nervous to be giving up my thread-starting virginity, but here goes nothing.

    Beyond the ones we check in the privacy of our home office---www.bigfunbags.com---what Web sites do you visit on a daily basis because they're beneficial to your work (or just really informative)?

    Sites like phillysportsmedia.com and bostonsportsmedia.com are on my must-see list, because of how they link to most of the relevant articles of that day. I check out baseballprospectus.com, sonsofsamhorn.net and rotoworld.com, but I can't say I have more than a few that are daily must-sees. Seth Mnookin has a great blog, even though he gets irregular with updates when he's working.

    What about you all? What hidden gems are out there? For all the harsh talk about blogs and other Web site material, there's a good percentage of them that feature terrific content. How about a running list?

    In all seriousness, Huffington post and deadspin are about my only must reads, besides here of course.

    Gmail, SportsJournalists.com, my paper, the competitor, Yahoo! fantasy, Yahoo! sports, ESPN fantasy and weather.com are sure-fire stops I make every day. I would also add Google, but I don't actually go to Google, I just use the search bar in Firefox.

    Facebook, LinkedIn, various Cubs blogs, various music blogs, MUTigers.com, my state's high school association, my state's private-school athletics assocation, various other high school sports sites, various other newspapers, APSE, JJobs, ABC Circulation and various recipe sites are places I stop regularly, if not every day.
