Bob Costas To Tackle Blogging On Costas Now

Tuesday, March 25, 2008

Everyone knows that Bob Costas said he hated blogs, got hammered on the web, and then he recanted and said that he didn't hate all blogs. It was all very convenient if you ask me and ultimately sad when someone you once liked all of a sudden seems old and out of touch. But that's just one man's opinion (one that doesn't buy Costas' "apology).

Anywho, HBO's Costas Now is coming back with a live show in late April and look what they're going to be talking about!

“On April 29 we're going to take stock of the sports media landscape," said HBO Sports president Ross Greenburg in a statement. “For example, the rise of Internet bloggers and sports talk radio are topics you cannot ignore. What is their impact on sports and how news gets reported? We look forward to a comprehensive and opinionated evening of discussion.”
According to Fanhouse's MDS, Deadspin's Will Leitch will make an appearance on the show. That should be fun.

The sad thing for me is that Costas and I are the same age(he just turned 56; I'll be 56 in October), yet he's acting more like an old fart(Bill Conlin's name comes to mind), instead of the guy I grew to admire over the years. I don't have HBO, so I won't see it. I'm hoping someone will critique it.

Somebody needs to tell Little Bob that The Onion, Baseball Prospectus, and sports nation polls are NOT fan blogs. Costas will have a blog in 3 years tops. He already is in the 5th reincarnation of his god awful TV and radio shows.
