When you’re a computer guy and the power goes out three times in your building in one day, it doesn’t leave much time for anything else.
I did manage to re-work the Red Sox Daily Links and Patriots Daily Links pages this week. They’re still not “pretty” pages, (any web designers out there feel free to contact me) but I added a lot more feeds to the page to ensure that you’re almost always going to find new stories about the teams. Both pages now include feeds from blogs, both media blogs and select independent blogs. For instance, the Boston Globe and Reiss’ Pieces feeds have been combined into one feed in one box. I did that for the Herald and Projo and their blogs as well.
Those pages should help out for those looking for unique links all on one page while I’m away next month.
Here’s a few links for the afternoon:

Interesting thread over at sportsjournalists.com (careful, it can get nasty there) looking at the Globe/Red Sox conflict of interest.
