The addition of links to the sidebar today was spurred by a very funny post from Maize n Brew, assigning a football player to many of the blogs in the Michigan Blogosphere. My humble site was said to be the blog equivalent of everyone's favorite punter:
"How do you fit a mostly hockey blog into a football post? You make him a kicker! Hockey players and kickers are all ferriners anyway. Yost Built is not only your home for all Michigan hockey related gossip and analysis, but an excellent source of insight into the football program."
I appreciate the compliment, and the reasoning is very sound.
Anyway, I realized that I've been remiss in linking to some excellent Michigan blogs out there. So I added a new batch of links. Hopefully I haven't missed anyone. If I have, shoot me an email and let me know.
Another fun post that I stumbled across was Westsider Rider's current jersey list. I'm also a jersey collector. I don't have nearly as many, but I also--to this point--have only purchased jerseys of teams that I root for, and not necessarily individual players (or jerseys themselves) that I like. My list will be in a post to follow. I want to keep that on the sidebar along with my Sporting Event Counter.
I hope to make some more improvements to the site in the near future, including a new header to replace last year's Worst Year In Sports History banner (I resisted the urge to put up the Double Championship Countdown banner again this year, fearing a jinx). If anyone has any suggestions, I would love to hear them. There's a lot of blank space on the sides of this page, so revamping that would be something on the docket as well. If I can figure out how to do it.
