Today I’m heading to Chicago to attend the Blogs With Balls 3.0 Conference and be part of the “You Gotta Fight for Your Right…to Blog: An Ethical and Legal Primer on Sport Media in 2010″ panel. I’m on this panel with some very well known sports bloggers (insert the Sesame Street song…”one of these kids doesn’t belong here”).
- Jonah Keri
- Dr. Nicole M. LaVoi (U. of Minnesota)…ME!
- Alana Nguyen (Yardbarker)
- Josh Zerkle (With Leather, House of Punte, Kissing Suzy Kolber)
- Moderator: Jason McIntyre (The Big Lead) (Jason’s blog was just purchased for a “low seven figure” amount)
I’m not exactly sure what we are tackling but some of the issues we’ll likely discuss from our varying opinions include: LeBron’s mom-Delonte West, coverage of the Hundley-Phillips relationship, Ben Roethlisberger, and FCC pending law on regulating political blog content and other exciting topics! What we won’t be talking about is the Kagan-softball-lesbian “issue” or how women’s ice hockey in the Olympics is continuing to be assaulted, the NCAA Women’s College World Series, or Venus Williams’ 2010 French Open outfit.
Stay tuned for post-conference thoughts.
p.s.- the bidding for One Sport Voice starts at six figures…
