So, a sports blog that I am completely unfamiliar with published a list of the Top 100 Most Influential Sports bloggers, and BMR is ranked 86th. Sweet. I didn't even have to sleep with the judges to do it!
I'm honored and all, but the whole list is one big conundrum to me. It's like when those guys in the cheap seats talk sports with you, except that they're talking sports blogs. Sure, they know what they're talking about, but they've obviously had one too many drinks.
Surely, these guys are among the Top 100 sports blogs, not to mention the scores of other great hockey bloggers out there. Surely, I'm not the only one. (That's implying that I'm any good to begin with, which is hard to believe. To take anyone seriously who picked the Sens in seven this past spring is really hard to do.) Huh? No? Well then please give me some of what they're having. It must really relax the mind.
Look, I'm just not feeling the lack of love for hockey blogs that this list has. There are great ones out there, and you really don't have to look all that hard to find them. I mean honestly, go look at the Top 40 hockey blogs on BallHype and tell me that any of those don't deserve a place on the list. OK, you can't have 40 hockey blogs in the top 100. Still, you get the point.
Actually, fuck it. Fuck rankings. When did this turn into a popularity contest?
