Blog Hound: Favre To Jets Trade Fervor Tops Olympic Chatter
Published August 7, 2008
As one might expect, the trade of QB Brett Favre to the Jets dominated sports blogs over the past 24 hours. Olympics discussion also increased, with topics including the U.S. cyclists' apology for arriving in Beijing wearing air masks, the Opening Ceremony, the U.S. women's soccer team's 2-0 loss to Norway yesterday and NBC's plans for coverage. Yankees P Joba Chamberlain's shoulder injury and subsequent move to the 15-day DL was also a popular topic. Rounding out the top five were the announcement of the '08-09 NBA schedule and charges of point shaving leveled against former Univ. of Toledo basketball player Sammy Villegas.
