More on Caps bloggers
The Washington Times has a nice, in-depth piece today on the legion of Capitals bloggers that have been producing all kinds of material since team owner Ted Leonsis opened the press box to bloggers last season.
“Writers from a half-dozen other blogs, including Japers’ Rink, DC Optimist and A View from the Cheap Seats, are on the premises, cranking out posts that analyze everything from the Caps’ new uniforms to the Hurricanes’ power-play defense. They are affectionately called “blogger nation” and are part of a growing — and unique — strategy by the Caps to embrace new media outlets rather than keep them at an arms’ length.Great to see the mentions for Eric McErlain, Jon Press, On Frozen Blog and all the other friends of the blog, and it really all makes me wonder if more U.S.-based teams may soon take a similar approach in the near future.
I've still got quite a bit more to write about my trip to D.C. back in April, something I hope to get around to sometime soon.
UPDATE Leonsis has an interesting response to the article on his blog.
