    From Bill Bradley's Sitelines (The Sacramento Bee):

    Site: www.ussportspages.com.

    The skinny: In honor of Bissinger, we give you the best-known aggregator of newspaper sports sections. SportsPages has gone through a lot of changes since Rich Johnson started it almost 10 years ago. It has had spinoff sites (such as SportsJournalists.com, but we’ll write about that later this month) and even changed its name a few years ago. It shut down for a few weeks thanks to an unmoderated message board. But the heart of SportsPages is simple: It’s a one-stop shop to find the best newspaper sports stories of the day, with links to every major sports section in the country — and many sports sections worldwide.
    The call: I read this site every day and receive its top 10 stories list via e-mail every morning. SportsPages takes the effort out of combing major newspaper Web sites. I still read the newspaper sites that cover my favorite teams, but for interesting columns and in-depth stories, this is one of my favorite traditional news sites.

    Yep. Great place to find the 10 best stories of the day that were written by either people Rich knew, or who write for the largest papers, or who subscribe to the daily e-mail.

    I just googled a few other examples. Looks like Mr. Bradley does a nice job with this feature.

    IJAG is totally right. I stopped reading the TOP 10 when I realized what a complete joke it was.

    Do you think he needs any pictures for his story?

    New owner and operator of Sportspages is a guy named Gregg Henson, a former sports radio shock jock. Had the misfortune of hearing him a few times. Ugh.

    It's America. We need everything quantified (see also: top college journalists thread, ABC audit obsessing every six months, every sports poll from the AP I-A poll to the top 10 golf teams in Ass River Falls).

    And in typical style, the lead ad on the home page is touting a site to get Ann Coulter's latest propaganda e-mailed to you...

    I'm kinda curious why it went from "sportspages.com" to "ussportspages.com".

    I guess he doesn't want anything to do with soccer, cricket or hockey.

    Seems like I remember a thread about that. Yup, here it is:

    Oh Christ. The Detroit version of Mark Madden.

    Run out of half-a-dozen jobs (usually by means of abrupt firing) because of on-air sexist, racist and misogynist gaffes (much much worse than the usual fratboy radio shit, where that stuff is normally just winked at), and his abject refusal and inability to talk about much of anything except University of Michigan football (which quite understandably went over like a plutonium turd in Austin, Texas).

    Don't fucking write about us. The last thing we need is an influx of hayseeds from Sacramento registering here and ranting endlessly about the Kings and goddamn irrigation ditches, which are the only things any of them care about. You moved there, it's your problem, leave us out of it.

    Thank you.
