Athlete blogs?

Athlete blogs? In the previous post, I pointed to Steve McNair’s first-person entry on NFLPlayers.com and now, here is a WSJ story (free) about Justin Gimelstob’s first-person account of the U.S. Open that appears on SI.com.

Such participant-athlete first-person accounts have always been standard-fare on the sports page. I think it’s interesting that, in the case of Gimelstob, that “blog” is being used to describe what he’s doing.

(Trivia: A Nashville connection: In 1993, Justin Gimelstob won the USTA national boy’s, 16-and-under clay court championship which used to be played each year in Nashville.)

    Ben Roethlisberger has a TypePad blog that he was updating quite frequently up until June of this year.

    You can see he gets quite a few comments.

    It has been a while since we all have heard from Ben, but we understand he is a bit busy with other things. To make it short, I hope that the knee is feeling better and that he back soon. P.S. How is Zeus and the family?
