Blog Show No. 20: ‘The Summer of Blog’

This is the last Blog Show before Labor Day, so we look back at the best of the summer of blog and rehash old material: Brady Quinn, athlete hair, athletes partying, mascot stuff, etc. This approach prompted Steinz to dub No. 20 a concept show, which is a first in sports blogging TV history. Kind of like Sgt. Pepper’s, except trippier and much more of a classic.

Also, a before-the-jump programming note: The Blog Show is moving to Tuesday nights at 5:30 p.m. ET, which means Steinz and I are going head to head with Kornheiser and Wilbon on PTI. This is better than Friday nights at 6 when we were going head to head with no one because people don’t watch TV then. Regardless, we’ll continue posting it on the YouTubes.
