I'd love a collaborative RSS/(N)echo feed maintained by spofi member for any and all sports-related links. It could be used for scoring updates, quickies, kind of like a non specific but all encompassing links sidebar. It'd be a perfect workday distraction and place to park "Would you look at that!" kind of posts that don't warrant discussion. A few examples:

  • Mo's rehab is going well, entering its third cycle
  • Mets 9, Braves 2
  • Neat article about Lance's workout
  • I highly recommend seabiscuit
  • MoWiki
  • Check out this cool old spofi thread, still active
ESPN and non-commercial self links would be encouraged here as well. It could be powered by a simple trackback form (but of course MT would not be required). Posts could also appear on Spofi, or discussions could pop up on other member's blogs. it's also trivial to convert such a feed to a links sidebar, hosted here and/or on Member's blogs.

D, I have no idea idea what the hell you just said, but it sounds good. Actually, there have been many times I've wanted to post something little and silly, but thought it didn't warrant the full force of a front-page posting. I think this is a great idea, a sort of stream-of-consciousness corner to drop links, jokes and random thoughts. Yay!

I like the idea of quick-hit links in a sidebar; a lot of webloggers are beginning to use them, such as Jason Kottke and Anil Dash. However, with subscriber columns and announcements, how would we find room for them?

three column layout? it would take some tinkering but i think it sounds appealing. worth a trial.

I like the idea of quick-hit links in a sidebar; It doesn't have to be a remainder (or flux, which was my inspiration) sidebar - it can actually exist primarily in RSS/RDF/(N)echo (likely all three until one emerges as an accepted standard) - and then it can be read in a newsreader or read onto any website as a side bar.

Any more advance on this?
