I love art as much as the next person, don’t get me wrong, but these days my favorite reads are actually sports blogs. Articles about hockey and baseball, actually. Totally addictive. And at the top of the blogs for me is ESPN’s Grantland.com. So as part of my obligatory blogging for the week, I’m reblogging some of my favorites from the site.
The Collapse of the Red Sox ( I don’t know if anyone cares, but the Cubs picked up the Red Sox GM Theo Epstein this week, which could mean a turn-around for the team)
Screw Boston which features the bad ass graph of water usage during a the Men’s Gold Medal game at the 2010 Olympics
Toronto: The Worst Sports City in the World (6 out of 10 of the biggest riots in Canadian history started at a hockey game.)
