Sports Frog is an outspoken new four-person weblog devoted to "dissecting sports and media while battling a dirty gambling habit." Recent items offer interesting tidbits on the Redskins ("Washington was the last NFL team to integrate") and ESPN's exploitation of prep sports ("Ron Jaworski was on the network this weekend breaking down the plays of a recent big-time high school football game").

rcade...great link. This is worth a bookmark, for sure. Thanks.

I like it with one exception: the comment/discussion part is a cumbersome BBS style piece of slag. One of the main benefits of community blogs a la here and MeFi is the great capacity for non-threaded discussion like Sports Frog has. Oh, and on their comment pages, they claim to be the Number One Sports Weblog, which we, of course, should all take offense to!

"The concept was simple: create the world's best sports blog." Hah. If by "world" they mean the US, and by "sports" they mean "Basketball, Football, Baseball" -- then maybe they're onto something. Otherwise it seems a bit pretentious. In the few times they mentioned hockey, they made a point of saying that hockey sucks. So I won't be visiting again.

Hey there. Thanks for linking to us. It is true that most of our contributors have a hatred for hockey that rivals a snobby Upper East side widow's distaste for yellow mustard on her Oriental rug, but we're open to altering views. In fact, hockey-fan NBK just called us all "lazy" in the Swamp. He's right ya know. Anyway, thanks again for the link. We'll be watching this site.

I like it too ... but I'm still ranking this site No. 1.
