The Sporting Blog is no more and has been sold to SB Nation. This is mostly a problem for me when I try to explain what I do to people over 50—before I could just say I write for "the AOL" or "the Sporting News" and that would create flickers of recognition. In other ways it is basically no change. I'll write non-Michigan stuff for SBN, keep the mothership going as it was before, and work on my patient explanations of how you can make a living writing on the internet. Another thing that is tentatively moving to SBN: the BlogPoll. CBS never did anything with it, shoving it into a corner and studiously ignoring it. At SBN it will get the tech help it needs . . .This isn't exactly front-page stuff, but it is (a) noteworthy news of potential interest and (b) evidence of (i) the growing influence of this network and (ii) my need to check my e-mail, because I am way behind. Anyway, welcome aboard, Brian! Go 'Dawgs!
