Blog on Blog Violence

The hockey blogosphere is in a mighty tizzy today because fancypants blogger Eric McErlain wrote a piece about the New York Islanders “Blog Box” that was all, “The unprofessional bloggers wore JERSEYS, they are LAME and they are damaging the GOOD NAME of sports blogging”, and then even fancierpants blogger/journalist/folk hero, James Mirtle, wrote a piece that was all, “Loosen up, spaz! The internet is a big place.” (There might be a little creative paraphrasing, here.)

And then I was tooootally like, “I heart James Mirtle.”

I’ve been thinking about this issue all day, but you know what? Rather than expound on blogging, the nature of the media, snobbery, and the boneheads running the NHL, I’m instead going to post this picture of a monkey hugging a bird:

When I get my press pass, I’ll ask Pommers to autograph this picture.
That’s just the kind of blogger I am.

    you’re the sh!t. paraphrasing rules.

    More importantly, the offending bloggers in question were Islanders fans. Don’t the descriptors “lame” and “unprofessional” more or less go automatically with that description?

    I believe I may have already mentioned this to you, Katebits, but I must say it again in this forum: You are a transcendent genius!

    Oh, and I worry Pommers won’t be able to autograph that picture, because he’ll be trying to hug the bird, too.

    Great picture, Kate! Did you get that from Cute Overload?

    (Just kidding. Cute Overload is my favorite non-hockey site. I should stop trying to pimp it, though.)

    I TOTALLY got it from Cute Overload, Patty!

    There can NEVER be too much pimping of Cute Overload in my opinion.
