Okay, DSF, time for me to borrow your resident curmudgeon title.

The item you linked to is kind of like discussion about a soap opera. Except instead of fictional characters, it's people talking all about themselves and their small group. Who is writing for which blog? Will their blog be the bloggiest? Who has the most cleverest pen name? Blog blog blog.

After reading who Staples interviewed, it looks like I know one of the people behind Oilers Nation from school (and his brother). I think he's a great guy and I hope he does well. But that doesn't change my general distaste for narcissism so prevalent in the "blogosphere".

There's a Oilers blog by a moderator on here which is quite good except that every posting has to begin with 2 or 3 paragraphs of something to do with baseball, and then describe things like how much ice time someone will have as how many "at-bats" they will have. Mixing sports and mixing metaphors at the same time. I don't get it.

Sheesh! End rant.
