Mike Lantry, 1972
[Ed: Also on the site: Barry Larkin's press conference.]
For Ohio State week, We get to have a bit more "vicious" in the vicious electronic questioning. Not only is Chris Webb, of Buckeye State Baseball and the BuckeyeNine, one of the bloggers who has been around for a while, but he's also one who I keep up with on a near daily basis during the season. So the familiarity breeds comfort with making fun of him and the Buckeyes in such a public space.
So without further adieu, let's get to the Q&A:
Describe your season in 3 sentences.
Rocky but expected. It's better to be 3 words than 3 sentences. Was told if you don't have anything nice to say then don't say anything. Whoops that is 3 sentences after all.
Plead the fifth.
Yeah, I'm sure losing to a pair of teams with a total of ZERO scholarship athletes has to be rough. So glad Ohio State could show us that.
What's the chances of Alex Wimmers making me post pictures of otters on Friday? We're not going to be no-hit again are we? [Ed: con't after the jump.]
This article made me think, "Who on MGoBlog has press credentials?"
My belief was that Brian had to have credentials to be at the press conferences. But is this the case?
Anyway this quote from the article linked above is what I thought was the interesting item. And mark of the recognition of the new media channel the internet has become.
"Longtime civil rights lawyer Norman Siegel, who represented the journalists who sued, says the city will now decide who a journalist is by looking at the type of work they do, and not the organization they write for. "This addresses one of the major issues with regard to a online journalists," he says. "Bloggers should be treated equally to television, print and radio journalists." "
When I think of old media, like the Freep trying to enter the new media channel, it reminds me of how Radio Shock Jocks became all the rage. Essentially reasonable people had stopped listening to radio, and the only way to grab an audience was to become completely irrational on an issue, and then open the phone lines to all the irrational response.
For me today, radio is noise to be avoided. And print media is what I use to start my charcoal grill.
No wonder the flat panel Display Manufacturers are making it so easy to connect your computer, or WiFi to what you used to call your TV.
